if at any point you feel bored or disinterested in this site’s content and would prefer the excitement and giddy thrills of youtube or online pornography, i suggest opening some new tabs and having the best of both worlds.
My 2015 stand up show is called Taxis & Rainbows & Hatred and I think it’s going to be my BEST ONE YET or whatever else you need to hear in order to come along and watch it (please).
I did an early version of the show at the Sydney Fringe Festival and that was a bunch of fun, and now I am tinkering around with it to make it the best it that it can be. It’s about a bad thing that happened to me in a taxi in Newcastle, as well as loneliness, sex, love, labels and finding the courage to be yourself.
Hope to see you guys there.

We came together to find out exactly where we do and don’t agree on things like the privatisation of public assets, the State’s role in our lives, puppy farms, same-sex marriage, diversity in politics, the environment and our Prime Minister’s character.
Plus we laughed about that time he got drunk and was a bit silly.
