Today I’ll be performing for the youngest audience ever in my career at the Melbourne Comedy Festival 2014. I’m even bringing my own kids. I’ve decided to roll out an excerpt from my cruise ship family show. With 10mins required I’ll perform ‘Rindercella’. It’s an old Ronnie Barker routine that comics everywhere have adapted with their own jokes. Full of spoonerisms, the dirty jokes are hidden from the kids who aren’t old enough to reverse the spoonerism. It’s like a secret code! I make out that it’s a story for the kids but the adults soon work out what’s going on. Occasionally there’ll be a fart smella… I mean a smart fella amongst the kids who’ll laugh along. We’ll see!
Show: ‘HUGGERS’ – Exford Hotel, corner Russell & Little Bourke Sts CBD, Melbourne 12pm.
Then later today at 6pm I’ll jump back up in the Comedy Festival with the ‘Who’s Your Daddy’ show at The Joint at 6pm. Last night was loads of fin working with Terry North and JJ McLean. It’s straight Stand Up Comedy telling stories about being a dad. A topic I know pretty well by now! Dropping in for a 15min spot makes a nice change of gear from having worked so regularly as a corporate Master of Ceremonies over the last month.
Show: ‘Who’s Your Daddy’ – The Joint, corner Flinders Lane & Elizabeth St CBD, Melbourne 6pm.
