    Archive Ep: Another 10 Questions with Dave O'Neil from November 2021

    Archive Ep: Another 10 Questions with Dave O'Neil from November 2021

    Too much has happened since Dave O’Neil recorded this episode of Another 10 Questions back in the peak pandemic days of November, 2021. The point of Another 10 Questions was to invite guests back onto the pod as a catch up or check in. And since Dave was on the very first episode of this podcast back in 2015, there was a lot to talk about.
    Most listeners will be familiar with Dave’s work on Spicks and Specks, Agony, Randling, The Nugget, and more recently, great cameos in Utopia and Fisk. He was also the head writer on Totally Full Frontal, and with the screenwriter, Mark O’Toole, he wrote the feature films Take Away and You and Your Stupid Mate.
    Catch Dave’s new Melbourne Comedy Festival show Overweight Lightweight at Morris House from March 29 to April 9. Tickets here.

    S1 E110 - Mel Buttle

    S1 E110 - Mel Buttle

    This week’s guest on Out of the Question is the comedian Mel Buttle. I’ve been a long-time fan and this is our first ever chat. I particularly love her Mum character, which she occasionally releases on social media. We talk about the genesis of that here. We also talk school, jobs, growing up in Queensland and the Great Australian Bake Off which Mel co-hosted for five years. Stay tuned for her handy baking tips.
    You can also check out Mel’s new Melbourne Comedy Festival Show Let Me Know Either Way which is at the Melbourne Town Hall from April 11. Tickets at the Festival website.

    E1 S109 - Nikki Britton

    E1 S109 - Nikki Britton

    “I feel like I'm a very, very big energy in a world that wants you to be a little bit smaller.” - Nikki Britton.

    This week’s guest on Out of the Question is the comedian Nikki Britton. Apart from her live work, you might have seen Nikki on Have You Being Paying Attention, The Project and How to Stay Married.
    She’s returning to the Melbourne International Comedy Festival with her show, Getting Out in Front of It, from April 11. You can get tickets at the Festival website.
    We had some tech difficulties in this chat, which I hope aren’t too obvious. I was stuck in a motel in Castlemaine, where I’m filming a TV show, and Nikki was in her car after doing some sort of fitness thing. Also, I had food poisoning. Which probably didn’t contribute to anything.

    This week’s guest on Out of the Question is writer, comedian, and musician, Sammy J.
    It’s a great chat. How could it not be?

Now he’s taking a live version of his political satire featuring stand up, songs and storytelling around Australia. For bookings check out Sammy-j.com

    S1 E107 - Osher Günsberg

    S1 E107 - Osher Günsberg

    This week, I’m extremely excited to have Osher Günsberg on the show. Most people know him from hosting the Bachelor and it’s associated spin offs I was more an Australian Idol guy who loved the on screen chemistry shared by Osher and James Mathison.  But that’s just me showing my age. 
    During our conversation, we talk about all that, as well as his radio days, as well as getting back on the horse when you’re down as well as the extreme heights he hit hosting TV shows in the US.
