    Talking 262-showbiz life

    Hello all

    What does (showbiz life) mean in the following sentence?
    ---Do you prefer showbiz life in London?
    --Not at all. My best friend here is actually an old friend from Sheffield.

    Regards

    To the best of my knowledge, showbiz is the abbreviation of show business.
    By the way, what is Sheffield?

    Sheffield - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. It's famed for steel, and cutlery - though much of the industry has gone now. I think its force in this context comes from the fact that Sheffield is industrial, and possibly a bit run-down (The Full Monty was about unemployed steel-workers) - which makes the friend sound ordinary (in contrast to the showbiz life).
