i used to cohost the breakfast show on triple j,  i hosted my own late-night tv show tonightly with tom ballard and i regularly travel all over the world performing stand-up comedy.

welcome to my website. here you can find out a little bit more about me, read my blog, check out any upcoming gigs i may have, check out my free podcastsign up to the mailing list and just generally have a good time.

if at any point you feel bored by 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.

240 – Christiaan Van Vuuren (Big Deal)

Christiaan Van Vuuren is a comedian and YouTube star who you know from Bondi Hipsters, Bloom and At Home Alone Together. He’s the presenter of a great new documentary about money in Australian politics called Big Deal, which was directed by the Chaser’s Craig Reucassel.

This issue drives me (and I’m sure you) crazy, and it was great to get stuck into a similarly-outraged Christiaan. We touch on just how much money is washing around our politics, how much anti-democratic influence that money has, why “transparency” simply isn’t enough and why Christiaan is optimistic about the possibilities of change and fixing this shit.
