A bit of a chat and biffo on skates

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.

Tickets here.



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.

Give comedy for Christmas

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!

Thursday 22 March 7PM
The Big Band Room, ANU School of Music
