If you’re a fan of Emily Flake’s great cartoons in The New Yorker and Kate Willett’s hilarious stand up on Netflix/Comedy Central, you’ll enjoy their joint live show “Nightmares”. I’ll be a guest on the 02/11 show along with the brilliant Carole Montgomery, John Hodgman, Kenice Mobley and Jenny Boylan.
It’s free, doors 6:30 for 7. Details on Flyer below.
Would love to see you there!
G'day Meggsie fans!
Tune in to Studio 10 Wednesday morning at 8:30am to hear me talk to the gang about Ginger's 97th birthday.
You can catch some of my work among some of the best cartoonists in Australia in the latest Behind The Lines exhibition at the Museum of Australian Democracy in Canberra starting this week. It’s a privilege to be part of such a great collection.
We're doing a live pod! 10/7, 7pm at Muchmore’s in Brooklyn

I've been posting more on Instagram than the blog lately. Be sure to follow me there for extra news, scribbles and general stupidity...
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...
