Here is the final product: Womb Cop,  the movie that I made with director Corey Farrell. Its very funny and although I only had a small part it was a lot of fun. Look out for the stars: Ruven Govender, Sam Kissajukian and Madeleine Culp. They are great!

[Monday 27-3-17] It gets better: director Corey Farrell says Womb Cop is an official selection of the Die Laughing Film Festival in Hollywood. Talk about in with the in crowd!

Acting in Matt Fung’s short Finger Bang (original title “Home Invaders”) is only my second go at acting in a film. It was quite a voyage of discovery. I learnt I can’t remember my lines, I love pizza and am generally racked with guilt. I wrote a story about making this short film, I edited out most of the embarrassing bits (no don’t sue me I don’t have a lawyer, LOL).

By the way in case you were wondering, Wiktionary defines “fingerbanging” as: “To insert one or more digits into another person’s vagina or anus for sexual pleasure”; I knew that.

Matt Fung did a lot of very cute preparation for his short film “Home Invaders” of which this poster is only part (it appears behind me and James Brennan behind us on the couch) — Quite a picture!!! Sorry Michelangelo!!! No, I am not God!!! (I’m still worried about the penis).

The film is part of Matt Fung’s UTS course and is destined for Tropfest. Check this YouTube out for the finished work. Its amazing!!! (Watch this space after Tropfest).

I think Matt and his friends are definitely like the Beatles though, all that  youthful enthusiasm and charisma — you wish you were one of them (in case your were still thinking about fingerbanging, just for the record, James Brennan and I are just good friends) — “my forehead itches”, I wrote that line!

What I liked about doing Fringe

Posted: September 19, 2016 in festivals, gigs

Well that’s my fringe show for another year. It was a lot of fun. What did I like about doing my fringe show???

  1. Learning stuff (organising my own show, dealing with venues, accepting unexpected help with diplomacy and grace).
  2. Working with my friends (this is where the diplomacy comes in – I don’t know everything – feedback is great and a chance to learn).
  3. Respect of other comedians (and feedback always welcome).
  4. A lot more random people came than I expected (this was quite scary).
  5. I’m still using my books but I forgot to bring the one I needed up on stage for one of my poems — I ploughed on through and remembered it — if not necessarily in the “right” order. Well done Sue!
  6. Thinking outside the box of the Factory. I could put on a show anytime.
  7. Artist pass — you can go and see a lot of excellent shows for free.
  8. Discovering Mr Falcon’s which is a very cosy venue and a lot of fun.
  9. Knowing who will back you up, no matter what (with advice and just being there in case you need help).
  10. Random help — like Tom Sanderson getting behind my tee shirts and taking a dynamite photo I used on FaceBook  (40 hits) and Nick Capper wearing one of my tee shirts on stage.
