Ep 241 - Feelings

June 28, 2022

This week in therapy we spoke about feelings - CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?? Lucky for me, there's been heaps of stuff this week to practice on. Also my friend Bella Fowler wrote a phenomenal article for news.com.au about the decision on abortion in the US, so I challenged myself to speak about that for a while without saying anything stupid. I reckon I got through it.

Ep 240 - What A Great Weekend

June 21, 2022

After all my talk of giving myself time to relax and enjoy myself I've finally started doing it! This weekend I went to see my friends Flimsey Lohan play a gig at Bad Decisions in Fitzroy. On Sunday I went with a few mates to the Reclink Community Cup at Victoria Park to watch the mighty Megahertz defeat the slovenly Rock Dogs. And on Saturday, joy of joys, I treated myself to not one but TWO ice cream treats. Somebody restrain this man he is having AN UNSAFE AMOUNT OF MUCH FUN!!!

Home on Sunday! Melbourne is beautiful and cold, just the way I like it. I made dinner for one of my housemates on Sunday night and spent Monday relaxing as well. Almost finished my Steve Jobs book. A few mishaps, but all-in-all, pretty uneventful really!

Ep 238 - Velocity Gold

This week I'm recording from the Virgin Lounge in Brisbane Airport after the pleasant surprise of achieving Velocity Gold status. So long peasants and disgusting serfs, I now dine for free behind the locked door of privilege. This week I also had a lovely trip to Laidley, and saw the fantastic City Piss at the Outpost in Brisbane. It's been brilliant!

James Donald Forbes McCann is an Adelaide-based comedian, writer, podcaster, and future boat-owner. We went to McDonalds after a show at the Rhino Room and after eating burgers in his car, we turned the mics on and had a conversation about what we want out of life. James is one of the funniest, most unique people I know, and I always love talking to him.

Ep 236 - The Warnie

I heard that they're thinking of getting rid of the 5c piece because the metal required to make them costs 6 cents now, so the RBA or whatever is making a loss on the coins. Pretty funny! They asked ScoMo about it in a press conference and he basically told them to fuck off and that he doesn't care. What a loser! If I were Prime Minister, that would be all I'd ever talk about - let's get some weird shit on our money!

Here's the link for the YouTube video I was talking about, please jump in and defend Michael Shafar and I against the right-wing trolls.

Ep 235 - The Open Mic

Ep 235 - The Open Mic

May 17, 2022

I've been trapped for years in a neverending cycle of being busy to distract myself from depressive thoughts, then getting stressed because I'm so busy, so taking time to relax, but then when I relax, suddenly I'm faced with depressive thoughts. Lucky for me, there's one place I can always go to feel safe, and that's an awful open mic comedy night.

Ep 234 - I’ve Cooked It

May 10, 2022

I'm flying to Sydney and back, and then there again... three flights in three days this week. I've made an absolute mess of my schedule here. I listened to some comics talking about how you can only really make fun of something if you have love for it, otherwise it's just mean and spiteful. That rings so true to me, I think that's where I've fucked up so many times in my life. It's fine to make fun of stuff, so long as you also include some empathy, and see things from their perspective, otherwise you're just being a dick.

Ep 233 - Justice of the Peace

May 3, 2022

I went to see 'After Yang' with a friend yesterday and while it wasn't incredible, Colin Farrell's depiction of a man struggling to reconnect with his life and loved ones was very powerful, and I found a lot in it to identify with.

Ep 232 - It’s Good When People Do Well

Ep 232 - It’s Good When People Do Well

April 26, 2022

My main takeaway from the Melbourne Comedy Festival is that if I feel jealous of other people getting opportunities that I'm not getting, the problem isn't them, it's me. The only reason I might feel jealous is if I'm not happy with where I'm at, and if that's the case, the only person responsible for that is me! So I'm going to make some moves to take responsibility for my own career and where I'm at, rather than sitting around and waiting for other people to give me stuff. That really is the only thing to do!
