How else would comedians ever get editorial for their festival shows? In this article, the lovely Jil Hogan from The Canberra Times asked if funny is the new sexy. Who cares? What’s the point of being sexy when you’re exhausted? But it’s fun to see what the blokes reckon too.
In any case, come see my show Grey Matter, it’s on at 7pm next Thursday 22 March at the ANU School of Music Big Band Room.
For a few years now, I have noticed I’m going unnoticed…and I’m OK with that. This is a snippet from Civic Pub Comedy Club last November. And since you asked, yes, this is apropos of flogging tickets to my Canberra Comedy Festival show Grey Matter on Thursday 22 March at 7pm.
If your Christmas is not hilarious enough, get a couple of tickets to see my one night only show Grey Matter at the 2018 Canberra Comedy Festival and shove them under the tree. (Seriously, I don’t care what you do with them once you’ve bought them).
The Festival team have given me a gigantic and fantastic room (the Big Band Room at the ANU School of Music) and I want to reward them by FILLING IT, so please do get on board. It will be new stuff on getting older, speaking your mind and surviving dickheads. You’ll love it – spread the word! Thanks to Rory Gillen for photography and Rowdy Digital for the brilliant artwork!
Tune in every Wednesday morning for The Bright Side on 2XX 98.3fm to hear Tom Gibson Emo Parsonson and I carry on with shenanigans and silliness and the odd interview, guest comedian or live performance by local musos.
Here’s a couple of the promos we have for the show thanks to the delightful technical officer for 2xx, Dave:
After her recent gig at The Civic Pub in Canberra, Alex Wasiel told me about her short improv course at a famous Chicago institution, Second City and why she is SO Polish. This is one funny woman to watch on the Australian comedy circuit – always warm, funny and full of uncannily accurate impressions.
Emo Parsonson (left), myself and Shahed Sharify pretend we’re happy in Civic last Friday after spending lunch together, recording Emo and my first Povcast. Warning: Some bad language, some bad jokes and frequent wind on the microphone.
I want to learn more about comedy and producing audio interviews, so here is my first go at both at the same time. The start, I hope, of many interviews with some of my favourite local and interstate comedians about the hows and whys of their comedy.
First up is Tom Gibson who is both hilarious and able to dissect the technical side of writing, stagecraft, persona and crowd work so people like me can start to understand it better.
Let me know what you think and if you have anyone or any questions you want asked in future.
