Honestly, I was way too excited to record the podcast this week. I actually had something to talk about - the incredible book 'Good Material' by Dolly Alderton which I ABSOLUTELY LOVED!! I was sure I was going to be able to talk coherently about it for ages, and then when I turned the mic on I started rambling, and I'm not sure how well I spoke about it at all. That's the beauty of this, and for that matter every podcast though isn't it - they are all SHIT ..read more

I did two gigs tonight, the first was bad in a very bad and frustrating way, and then the second was bad, but in a much more satisfying and productive way. Both of them were bad though, because it was hot today, and I spent the whole day distractedly trying to sell tickets to my show in Brisbane next week, which are of course being very stubborn in not selling, but rather staying right where they are. Ah well, at least I get to go to sleep in a second ..read more

It was my birthday yesterday! I had a lovely day driving the bus down the Great Ocean Road, even had a lovely stranger gift me some sunglasses! It's a much funnier story than that actually, but you'll have to listen to the podcast to hear it, because that's what this is, it's a teaser! It's supposed to tease you, so that you listen to the podcast. You're stupid! See? Teasing! Now listen up, dumb-dumb ..read more

I've been re-reading Stewart Lee's 'How I Escaped My Certain Fate: The Life and Deaths of a Stand-Up Comedian' this week and absolutely loving it. I read it ten years ago when I first started stand-up, and reading it again with fresh eyes gives me a new appreciation for where he was at in his life and the artistic choices he made. Stewart Lee rules. You wanna know who doesn't rule? Well you'll have to listen to this 40-minute podcast if you wanna find out ..read more

I've had a wonderful few days over the weekend relaxing, playing piano, seeing friends and even doing a bit of stand up (if you can believe it!) but as I stand now on the precipice of 5 long days of work, I feel as insecure as ever. When does it end? But I guess without these moments to propel us forwards, life would be one never-ending moment of ecstatic boredom. You need a bit of grit in there for texture ..read more

So Grumpy! Surly even... I just had a not ideal gig on my friend's show in Sydney, I was distracted because I thought my piano was broken. It's not... anyway who cares, on Sunday I went to a swap meet and found a cassette of stand up comedy from a comedian based in Geelong that was released in 1983!! Incredible stuff. I bet you can't guess what kind of jokes were on there hehehe   Here's the clip from that docco with DJ Shadow: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1gpKYnRdf0A ..read more

Ep 320 - I’ve Figured Out Pop Music

Today while driving the tour bus I put on 'Love Yourself' by Justin Bieber and it really perked me up! I remember Hunter S Thompson describing music not as this sacred thing people always insist that it is, but simply as 'fuel', and today when that song got me through a tired patch, I really understood what he meant. I think I finally get it ..read more

I woke up at 5:30am on Christmas Eve and drove down to Torquay to go for a surf on the new board my friend gave me. I didn't stand up once, but that's not the important bit. Then I went for a walk up Hanging Rock before heading to Bendigo where I spent Christmas with my cousin and his family. On Friday night some dork after the show at Republic came up to me and recommended I listen to the music of Ludovico Einaudi calling him 'The Modern-Day Mozart'. I did, and I thought it was shit. That's the highlights from the pod, and indeed my life, for the last week of the year, 2023. YouTube Video abo ..read more
