After smashing my front teeth rollerskating as a child, I can’t imagine the guts it takes to sign up for the Canberra Roller Derby League. Join me at the Brindabelters vs Black’n’Blue Belles game this Saturday at Southern Cross Stadium Tuggeranong 6pm to watch and learn, and hear me chat to some legends of the league at half time to try and undestand why women sign up to be knocked over or biff people on skates.
The next big gig is Factory Espresso Comedy on Friday 6 April in the beautiful city of Orange, NSW during FOOD Week! It’s set to be a cracker of a gig with my good buddies Emo Parsonson (MC) and Tom Gibson at Factory Espresso. Send your Orange mates!
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.
