20180605 - MAD - Pardon Me President.jpg

Another episode of Is There Something In This has just unceremoniously plopped into the world and it's yet another pearler if we do say so ourselves.

The hot-button topics we address this time around are as follows:

Steve and Aziz at the Comedy Cellar,
Library of Content,
Spirit Animal Pet Cemetery,
First class deaths,
Passengers named Greg,
Town Criers,
Is Melania conspiracy theories,
Pardon me
President,
Susan in HR,
Ruin Your Life Package,
Fire- Will it scale,
Guru Bot,

and of course your wonderful listener suggestions... including the very funny Mum, Carmel.

Bonus Material:

Showtime tomorrow night! -and Herald Sun story on Meggs.

My solo show is tomorrow night. I'm nervous about it. I haven't performed it in over 5 years, and watching back over the recording I realised 3 things: 

1. I used to speak really, really fast on stage. One might call it gabbling.
2. I need to draw more on stage. (My notes say "Less talky, more scribbly")
3. I have way more grey hair now than when I  first did this show. I hope the material translates into 'old'.


If you're still umm-ing and aww-ing about coming, it's probably not for you. But if you want to come, I'd love you to grab a ticket below and come along tomorrow night to watch the show. It's a story I always get asked about and have trouble telling -for several reasons of which become apparent in the show.

If you're wondering what it's about, here's a review of the show from the Herald Sun in 2013.

Serendipitously enough, that same paper in Melbourne ran a feature on my doing Ginger Meggs today (Clipping generously sent by my Melbourne family. Thanks, Chris!). I'm not in love with the clickbaity headline, but I guess you can't write your own press. At least they used a good picture of me...
