Roadshow Diary Day 1…
So this is the first tour I’ve been on, and I though it might be interesting to write a few words about it while I’m here.
Currently in: Perth
It’s the WA leg of the Melbourne International Comedy Festival Roadshow. On this trip are comedians Colin Lane, Tommy Dean, DeAnne Smith and Glen Wool (if you don’t believe me, suck on this:)
As well as our tour manager Gideon and stage manager Stu. I’m not sure if I’m allowed to call him Stu yet. His name is Stuart. You already figured that out? When did you get so clever?
Anyhoo, here are my first impressions of Perth.
Oh my god, this is the first thing I saw when I got off the plane:
In Perth, dogs ride escalators. Perth is Ace.
I bought some cereal cos the folder in my hotel room said we have complimentary milk. When I came back and looked in the fridge, this is what I found:
When the spout of the milk carton is bigger than the other bit, that milk isn’t complimentary, it’s insulting.
(Turns out, it was more than enough)
We were having a beer and kept seeing heaps of people in black walking around we didn’t know what they were doing. Were they goths, emos or ninjas? Considering there was a 1 in 3 they were ninjas, Glen, Stu and I went to investigate. There was a hardcore band playing down the street, so we though we’d check it out. As we walked closer, everyone was fully decked out in black and looking huge and angry. Glen had a beanie and big black overcoat and Stu was dressed similarly. Here is what I was wearing:
The band was called Mortal Angels and tickets cost $70 bucks. When Glen said he didn’t want to pay that, my testicles went back into place. Good thing too, they were starting to hurt my lungs.
