Tom Ballard is one of the most exciting young comedians on the Australian circuit. Ballard has had an exciting year being nominated for the Barry Award at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival and the Helpmann Awards later in the year. This was a good opportunity to catch up with the young fella before he gets too big to remember his old pal Hammo.
Actor and author Tasma Walton joins me on the podcast for the first time to discuss everything from her start in Geraldton, WA, to NIDA to her starring role in the ABC TV series "Cleverman". Warning: may contain traces of Rove McManus.
Good friend and "Home and Away" star (not to mention one half of TOFOP) Charlie Clausen returns to the podcast and right at the start we have a little (very little!) taste of Michael Fassbender out here for the opening of "X-Men: Apocalypse".
TV and radio star Osher Gunsberg makes his first appearance on the podcast and we get to learn how his family came to this country, his start in the industry and a love of "Quantum Cop".
Rove McManus returns to the podcast to discuss what do people mean when they talk niche, rabid fanbases and taking that moment to relax and smell the roses without having to take a photo of the roses.
Comedian Zoe Coombs Marr knocked it out of the park at the 2016 Melbourne International Comedy Festival with her Barry Award winning show, "Trigger Warning". This was a good opportunity to catch up with Zoe so we could talk about her career, "Dave" and the changing world of stand up comedy.
I can't tell you what I'm talking about in this podcast but I do talk about it so it is up to you whether you listen or not. It is pretty vague but possibly not. Maybe you'll work it out, maybe you won't. If you're up for it give it a shot. Or just wait and in time you'll find out what I'm talking about. It is up to you.
Another unannounced edition for those of you who find it. This is quick catch up covering how the Adelaide Fringe played out for me, a little bit of raving about some books, comics and TV shows I've really been enjoying and some thoughts on David Bowie that aren't covered in my new show, "Hoot!" Hope you enjoy,
Hello! Here's a podcast with two different pieces for you. The first half is a short story about a girl and her first love. The second half is a recording taken from "The Shelf" from August last year. It is very much the end of the night and one of the comedians has found it difficult to move from the back of the stage. Warning: may contain traces of drunk comedians looking for an out. Enjoy!
