Ep 254 - Another Day in Paradise

September 27, 2022

In the last week I've had a cancelled gig cost me $200, got told off by a lady in the park, and had my Saturday plans slip through my fingers like dry sand. Sometimes it's really important to acknowledge when you've had a bad time, or been in a bad mood, because the moment you acknowledge it is the moment you're able to start going through the feelings and heading towards something better. Yeah, that'll do.

Ep 253 - What The Fuck

September 20, 2022

I was going to call this episode 'Shaved', because I shaved my head this week, but instead I'm calling it 'What The Fuck', because that is how I feel after recording this. All over the place! Honestly I'm sure it isn't as bad as it felt while I was recording, it never is, but still, what a strange experience. Bombing on your own solo podcast. Good stuff!

I landed back in Melbourne at 8:30pm, Monday night. Recorded this week's pod after a full day back in town, feeling great, love being home. Travel is great, and I do want to move back to Europe at some stage, but right now I'm so glad to be home.

Ep 251 - Maybe I’m Gonna Try and Grow A Beard

September 7, 2022

This week I've been to York, Amsterdam, and am now in Paris. I recorded the pod from a bench in the middle of this beautiful cemetery near my friend's house. There were mosquitoes, and groundsmen kept wandering past me while I recorded. Also an old couple with a pram. Incredibly distracting! And a shame because I have a lot of very serious and important things to say about art, music and the human condition. These horrid little bugs have robbed us of my wonderful insights.

Ep 250 - I Don’t Hate Him, I Just Disagree With His Article

My friend sent me a Guardian article about how the Fringe needs to be shorter, and like bull charging towards a square of red hanky I read it. Different people have different experiences of the Fringe, and everyone has their own idea of what they'd like to get out of it. Clearly I needed to get some of my emotions out, because I absolutely went off on one here, before heaving and ho-ing my way back to some sort of sensible discussion of the last week of the Fringe which was, for the record, one of the most exciting weeks of comedy I've ever done!

The Fringe is still happening! We're into the last week, and I'm breaking apart at the seams. About half an hour ago I did a spot on a show and just spoke about how tired I am. I asked if anyone had cried recently, and this girl told me she's going back to Jordan in two weeks and she's really scared, and her boyfriend was there and he's not going back with her. I told them a story from my life. It was beautiful. By this time next week, it'll all be over.

The time-distorting power of the Fringe has got me forgetting what things have happened when. I've been telling this new story on stage for what seems like months now, but I realised a few minutes into the pod that it only happened on like Tuesday night, so I hadn't told it on here yet. Insane. I'm having the time of my life out here, let me tell you.

Ep 247 - Promotional Condom

Today while I was looking for a place to deposit cash into my Monzo account, a girl turned around and handed me a condom. It was in a really colourful round packet thingo, and looked kind of artsy. A small part of my brain thought she might have been flirting with me. During this week's podcast I pulled it out and saw there's a QR code on the back of the packet. It sends you to the page to buy tickets for a show - she wasn't flirting with me, she was flyering me. I've been swindled by my own vanity here... The Edinburgh Fringe is absolutely fantastic.

Here's that video from Campbell Walker about finishing things I was talking about:

On Friday after I went for a swim in Barcelona I stumbled on this neighbourhood deli in what I guess is a kind of fancy part of the Gothic Quarter. The guy made me a sandwich, and I ate it on the marble step of a nearby apartment building. It was such a beautiful moment. The last week has been full of things like that. I'm having the best time.

Ep 245 - The Bingo Gig

July 25, 2022

On Wednesday night I did a gig in a bingo hall that would have to be up there with one of the worst I've ever done. Top 5 I reckon. I have nothing against any of the people involved in booking me for the gig or putting it together - if anything I am still very grateful for the work! But boy, it was a rough one hahahaha... Still, I'd rather relive that again than have to feel the stress I'm feeling right now about flying tomorrow. This is absolute torture. Eugh.
