...bet you were wondering when I'd use that one, weren't you?

Life is back to being busy again, so it's time for me to pimp my next gig: Not the Nobel Prize.

This is a collaboration between the Melbourne Museum and the Comedy Festival to celebrate Science Week, and I'm very chuffed to have been asked. Four comedians will question four scientists in an attempt to determine which of them is presenting a real scientific concept, and which are making stuff up. I'll be on the comedians side along with some big names in comedy - Tommy Dean, Cal Wilson, and - wait for it - Sue-Ann Post! Should be a metric truckload of fun for fans of science or comedy, and if you like both, well, then it'll be a kilotruckload of fun - that's three orders of magnitude more fun!

It's on August 24 at 7pm, with a second show at 9pm (though I think that one's yet to be confirmed). I am but a humble entertainer in this enterprise, so if you want to come you need to book - I don't think it's a big theatre. Tickets are $12/$10, and the booking number is 13 11 02.
So the 2007 Melbourne International Comedy Festival is finally coming to an end. I say finally...I was kind of enjoying it. I mean, some things were less than ideal. But I've had a successful run of my show, appeared in multiple other places, and had a whole mess of fun.

Life will soon go back to something approaching normal. Probably. But then again, I have more plans. And the Fringe Festival is only five months away...

In the meantime, I will be trying to catch up with people. There will probably be various social invitations coming your way. I'll rest a while, and try and reconnect. And maybe even write some more stuff in here.

For now, let me just say that performing my show to a room mostly full of year six students, with a few teachers, parents and older students in the mix, was an experience I won't quickly forget. The best question was from the girl who asked "Is your hair real?" Some older rake up the back then had to ask, "Are you real?" Somehow I managed to avoid any kind of existential crisis over that one.
