    Ep 119 - Where's My Money

    The whole of last week I was checking my bank account to see if my $10k from Perth Fringe had been transferred yet, and it hadn't. It was excruciating. Then on Monday afternoon it came through, and my life has remained more or less the same, only difference being today I am very tired.

    EP 118 - Please Don't Make Me Go For A Run

    First week back in Melbourne and I've spent most of my time pottering around my empty house with no clothes on. I also did the feature spot at one of the Raw Comedy heats on Saturday, which honestly was a bit of a big moment for me, and so rather than using my 8 years of experience as a comedian to tell jokes, I took the opportunity to lecture the crowd and impart my wisdom unto the new acts at the show. What a loser.

    Ep 117 - The Fancy New Bedspread

    I bought a new bedspread today from this Japanese linen store called Muji, it cost $230 for two pillowcases, a duvet cover and a fitted sheet, and the pillowcases I got are the wrong size. They're too big. I'm taking them back tomorrow to trade them for the right ones. I made a lot of money in Perth and this is the sort of thing that is going to happen all the time from now on.

    Ep 116 - Nothing To Sue Here

    Last week I had sold out shows and amazing reviews, it looks like I'm going to make $10k from this run, but it's never enough is it. Even if I had the perfect run for the next few months, and even for the rest of the year, next year it all starts again. How to escape this cycle and stop running on the wheel?

    Ep 115 - Perth, Baby!

    Yesterday I spent the whole day sitting in a pool eating great food and not thinking about comedy. It was fantastic. I feel rejuvenated. On Saturday I spent three hours doing my taxes and it was awful. This is life, no?

    Ep 114 - Back On The Road

    I didn't want to leave Melbourne on Friday, I was thinking about my garden, and my piano, and my friends and how I wouldn't see any of them for a month and it made me sad. But Perth is awesome, it really is. The beach, the weather, the fact that there's no smoke. And the first two shows have been great. It's just leaving home is always hard, especially when you've never had a home before!
