Molotov Rules!

Posted: March 10, 2018 in gigs, running sheets, venues

I’m a “regular” at Molotov — its an excellent room — close to Sydney University in Two Wolves Bar — the audiences are warm and appreciative — the wait staff are very nice and don’t judge me for drinking 5 dollar beers.  Here’s this week’s second bracket with my name.



Poetry at Parliament on King.  Sunday, February 4 at 5:30 PM – 9 PM. This is not my first poetry slam but it was the best (I did one at NSW Uni). I found out about it at the last moment and headed on down to Kingstreet Newtown and put my name down. It was an incredible show! I did a poem about the beginning of a relationship and all the other girls did poems about the end. There’s always a first time. You have to learn.

Here’s what they said about the show:

Music, poetry, books up to the ceiling and whisky in your coffee…
Live art and some beautiful StayFly works on exhibition.
Come and pour your heart out. Do whatever you please, there are no rules, ratings and no subject this time!
This is going to be an event running on the first Sunday of every second month starting this February of 2018!

Come and sing your heart away or rhyme your deepest joys and sorrows… Everything you have created, and everything you are, is a product of our world’s divine expression… It is an interesting time to celebrate this, and interesting to see how it manifests itself through art and through you!

Poets please comment below for a spot or come at 5pm to jot your name down.
Artists contact Bella on 0477078132 to sell or exhibit your pieces, be it

A fun night at Vibe Comedy at Magic Mike on Saturday 24th February 2018. All the comedians were in consternation when they found that half the audience were under the age of 5. There was a lot of hasty editing of swear words. I myself toyed with jokes about Henry the octopus for the Wiggles fans in the audience. Other just ploughed through — we counted two uses of the expression “sick cunt”. Nigh-nighs time came during the break thankfully, and I got to do my octopus story, complete with the word “fuck.”

Mr Ballard I presume?

Another seat of my pants spot at the Friend in Hand. I enjoyed the lovely warm crowd and the excellent acts that performed on the night. I also met Tom Ballard who liked my opening joke and riffed with it all through his set.

This is the running sheet:

Late night show at Hive

Posted: January 7, 2018 in facebook, gigs, venues

I had a great night at Pat Doherty’s Late Night Show at Hive Bar.

17th December 1917.  I love doing Pat’s show because I sit in the audience and see all the great acts and then I do my bit so I get the best of both worlds.

I did my tissue paper poem witch went off pretty well — even Pat liked it and George Pettifer was a fish. I thought it was funny — he was doing an ad for knives (where do they get this stuff?
