Swipe Night podcast finally launches!

So myself and my partner in crime/housemate/fellow comedian/fellow internet dating fiend Kirsten Law have finally launched our podcast. She was my co-star in our 2014 Fringe show Man Academy. It’s called Swipe Night and it’s a comedy podcast all about online dating, sex and relationships. Here is our cool lil’ logo designed by the absolute […]

On Nova with Nath Valvo

Once again I have been shamed by my friends into updating my website. It’s nice that they care enough to abuse me about it so I thought I’d post this audio from when I did Nova 100 Saturday morning breakfast with my pal and fellow comedian Nath Valvo. He hosts the show every weekend and […]

Melbourne Fringe Update

Tonight we’ll be completing our final show of 3 Little Gigs at Melbourne Fringe – the split show I’ve been doing with Arielle Conversi and Cameron Tyeson. The shows have been great – solid crowds, including one sell out and a shitload of randoms – including people who follow me on Twitter. We don’t know […]

Being a Ryan Gosling Expert in Sunday Life

I have found myself in the position of “Ryan Gosling expert”, following the hysteria of #Goslingwatch. If you are unfamiliar, that was a successful hashtag that I created in regard to rumours that Ryan Gosling was in Australia that were never actually proven. Contrary to some extremely defamatory accusations – I didn’t make it up […]

How to Turn an Unsubstantiated Gossip Rumour Into a National News Story via The Social Mediaz

The Power of Kimbra…and Monkeys

I caught up with my friend Stu for lunch yesterday. He is a musician. “Hey, so I just checked youtube yesterday and my video has had like 200,000 views,” he told me over a coffee. “Isn’t that weird? Last time I looked it was 4,000.” “Uh-huh,” I said, thinking he probably meant to say 20,000 views. […]

M.I.A – Bad Girls

A few days ago I was bagging the shit out of MIA for her lame Superbowl appearance/collaboration with Madonna, the whole contrived “flipping the bird” thing and general sell out-ness. The first time I heard the track I thought it was a bit samey and the whole “bad girls” thing seemed a bit played out […]

Mark Ronson and Aaliyah, Circa 1999

Oh my god (or should that be “gold”? – GEDDIT?!). Just when I thought Mark Ronson couldn’t become anymore attractive, I found this Tommy Hilfiger ad from 1999. He is all wigga’d up with a shaved head. And he is modelling with THE Aaliyah (may she rest in peace). Who is wearing an amazingly bad […]

The Ultimate Star Spotting: Chasing Amy

When I moved to London from Melbourne, I wanted to see celebs – lots of them. It took me a while but eventually we were at a pub is Islington for our work Christmas dinner and who walks in but Jude Law (!!!). Sadie Frost was also there, as well as what I could gather […]
