FaceBook message from Bobby Deez:

“Hi Sue, I saw you perform at Harold Park recently – would you be interested in doing a 5 min spot at Bunker Comedy Night at Coogee Diggers on Fri Sep 2? Cheers, Bobby”.

The gig turned out to be a lot of fun. I did the Silent Witness Story and got some good laughs in the middle, a little soft at the beginning and the end. ¬†But it was mostly good, there was a huge audience, a seemingly bottomless bar tab (no I wasn’t pissed), and I got a few very enjoyable comments from the nice people there when I flyered for my show.

My favourite comments were: “Surprisingly funny” (from a middle aged couple)¬†— “my friend nearly wet herself”¬† (the lady was pregnant — so I can’t take all the credit) and “you look like Meryl Streep” (I asked the lady in which film and she said The Devil Wore Prada, ho hum).

The “special guest” turned out to be my pal Justin Andersen who did a great set.
