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...
