Rodney Todd and Friends

Posted: August 14, 2018 in gigs, venues

Rodney Todd and Friends was a very cool evening and fund raiser (lets hope Rodney sold a lot of hats and scarves). I was one of the first to appear at the Sydney Park Hotel on Wednesday 1 August 2018. Clinton Haines stripped down for his art and Dave Eastgate appeared accidentally because it is his local hotel. Good on him. He riffed for 20 minutes about being homeless (I think he has an  idea for another fringe show). I did my Octopus Story which was totally unexpected. It lovely to be included in such a talented evening of Rodney’s friends.

The lovely Bella Fiorentino put on a great night once again at Parliament Cafe on Sunday 8th July. It was a lot of fun. She had me as the “feature” artist and it was a lot of pressure because I always think of myself as an ensemble kind of guy. Still I gave them all I got. Maybe a bit more.

The other acts, as always, were standout particularly the first guy Paul was great telling poems about Bondi (my home town), very lyrical and pure. Bella sang a song with her clear haunting voice. It was a very nice laid back night, just like the night in April.

This is what Bella said on FaceBook:

Bring your instruments and spill your woes with some whisky and caffeine, sprinkles and whipped cream! Another night of madness, music, poetry and a saucy erotic comedian, the dearest Sue Thomas! Some StayFly artworks will be on exhibition, the one and only YOORI will be painting the night away and all ticket proceeds go to a charity chosen by you! We wont be voting or ringing any bells for time limits! Just a poem or song per person & if times left you can go again. Hope to see you there!

Sign up is 5.30 with a 6pm start, jam starts around 7.30 and if you would like to sell or exhibit any artworks or handmade thingamabobs (I took some tee shirts and booklets — I know that was a bit cheesy but I sold some, so there!)

Argyle Comedy Club

Posted: June 26, 2018 in gigs, venues

Monday night at Argyle Comedy Club was a very nice experience. People talked about the “womb-like” ambiance of the room (at the Argyle Tavern). People drank happy hour cocktails. People laughed; and people came back after the break. I closed the first half and thanks to the helpful venue staff I had both a light (to read by) and a stool. It was very comfy. The audience were very nice. I had a very good time. I will definitely be signing on again.

Lady Hampshire Haha!

This is the second spot I did at this lovely gay friendly and dog friendly hotel (the Lady Hampshire). It was full on! We nearly had two fights but everyone had a good time, because of the fights or despite them I wasn’t sure. At least it wasn’t my fault. Fortunately for me they like weird stuff down there.
