How do you choose between two posters as gorgeous as this? Thank you Paige Halley.  Of course I chose the one with the pink scarf because it is zany and catches the eye.  The good thing is it makes me look like I have something exciting to reveal. Sadly it does make me look like my mother on heat.

This should be a good one — I’m just doing stand-up this time but it will be fun watching our pals fighting it out — particularly Seizure Kaiser and Simon Kennedy who have already been sparring on the net!

Magic Mic (Mike?)

Posted: June 15, 2017 in gigs, photos, venues

I had a bit of trouble finding the Magic Mic site on FaceBook.

Here is the event posting for Magic Mic comedy for last night (June 14, 2017).

A little badinage:

Me: “Trying to find Magic Mic FaceBook page and have inadvertently “liked” a page for a movie about male strippers – not so bad. Lol”

Anthony Skinner (who runs the room): “Sue we all saw you at the premiere, don’t deny it haha”.

Anyway it was a great room, friendly bar staff, logical snacks. Last night was off the wall good. Everyone was firing off like crazy (you know that kind of night where the same old jokes magically sound like gold.

The audience were young city dwellers (and possibly tourists I don’t know), just my kind of people, they seemed to be enjoying themselves and at the height of the evening the place was full. A win win situation is what I call it.

This is what it looked like (I am in the shadows on the far left).

ROAST BATTLE!!!  was great! I had a very good time which was surprising because I never did this kind of thing before. Te was a worthy opponent but the best woman won apparently. Thanks to the judges: Liam, Peter Meisel and Amanda Grey!

What do you do when you front up at a Phuklub show and you have a script full of questions for one of the show and tell performers (like I did on March 19) and the guy  in question doesn’t show?

You get up on stage and do it anyway. Brent did a stint doing escort work in his youth so he lent the occasion an air of authenticity and great storytelling skills.

So we improvised the interview. Brent Thorpe was hilarious and I had a lot of fun.

This is what Jeremy Belin said (thanks again for the wonderful photos buddy!):

“You had to be there. This was one of my favourite acts in Phuklub history… it was interesting, honest, hilarious and totally off the cuff and unrehearsed.”

Phuklub at the Chippendale Hotel Sunday 26-2-17. I did my ‘why I like porn set’. It got laughs. Lots of improvising with the help of Ben Elwood. Thanks to Jeremy Belin for the photos.
