Somehow, we have turned our weekly radio show into a podcast. For an old person like me, this seemed to involve eye of newt and a lot of cauldron stirring and other dark arts. Only managed to put one up – a great episode where we chat to comedian Damian Callinan who does the most hilarious act outs of everything from stoner Galahs to regional community radio stalwarts.
We will put more episodes up so please subscribe to get the latest, and be in touch if you wan us to discuss anything in particular. Of course you can still tune in Wednesdays 7am-8.30am on 2XX 98.3fm or listen to the online stream at http://www.2xxfm.org.au/.
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:

Exciting news! I’ll be heading to Sydney to perform in a group show with my good and very funny buddies, Hamish Hudson, Emo Parsonson and Tom Gibson at the Sydney Comedy Festival from May 5-7 at the Happy Endings Comedy Club in Potts Point!
RAMSHACKLE FIASCO, the A-Team of laughs, presents a new hour of comedy from four of the nation’s hottest stand-ups. After touring festivals and comedy rooms of Australia with their individual shows, the team is back together for a combined show so big it almost doesn’t fit.
Please, if you’re in Sydney come and see us and tell your mates!
Thursday tickets are $18, Fri and Saturday $22.50 book here
Dusty after a big night out at Tourism Awards, I tried to articulate Christmas thoughts with Eddy Nelson, Jarrad West and 666 ABC Canberra presenter Genevieve Jacobs this morning. Spoiler alert – Eddy drops a bombshell about Santa at 18m24s – ‘not the opinions of the ABC’.
You don’t often get to gig for an organisation with two of your favourite comedians – especially when the mics drop out and you’re behind a podium for your spot, delivering like TedX champ. But here’s some evidence that happens (with the amazings Luke Heggie and Tom Gibson). Photos thanks to the pro Geoff Comfort (http://www.geoffcomfort.com/)
A bit from my Civic Pub October 2015 show.
Wow…What an MC Chris makes!
As the organiser for our annual Corporate Awards Gala Event, she made my life so much easier! She was ready & waiting & watching my every move on stage; ready to catch me & how cool is she at filling the airspace with comedy to keep the vibe buoyant in a big room!! Chris had a crazy tough room with a lot happening & she still captured their attention with her wit, wonder & bravado!
Damn brilliant. A huge thank you & a massive recommendation for anyone looking for an MC filled with a special bag of tricks!

I wrote this for The Canberra Times because I loved Robin Williams’ work and his death happened around the same time I lost an old friend to depression.
