A new format for the blog covering my gigs at Five Boroughs, Spleen, The Imperial Hotel, The Public Bar, The Local and the debate for the Essendon Football Club.
The final show for The Shelf Season 9 took an hour longer than expected and that seemed just about right on the night.
This blog not only covers the latest two gigs but also embraces how great this festival experience has been so far.
Possibly my favourite show of the Melbourne International Comedy Festival.
A tribute to Matty Blade and the lesson I have chosen to learn from his decision makes for a different approach to my show for the rest of the Festival.
Our second heat for Raw Comedy in Mumbai is a massive success and we picked two winners to head to the final in New Delhi.
The first gig for the Raw Comedy Competition in India starts off in the city of Mumbai. Read on to learn how the show played out...and how I was the first person scammed on this trip. Go Hammo!
After taking a mini break from gigs it was a good feeling to get back onstage at The Kodiak Club in Fitzroy.
The final Shelf for 2013 ends up being one of the all time best.
I can be hard work sometimes behind the scenes but I like shows and comedians to reach for perfection especially when it is time for The Shelf
Cupcakes! Superheroes! Stolen phones! Things we can't talk about! Just another night at The Shelf really.
I spent the afternoon performing in a work shop for a potential new game show.
A much better performance happens at Five Boroughs after the lessons I learned from the night before.
After a comedians pulls out sick I get the call and the opportunity to jump up and host the comedy night at Spleen.
I was one of three guests at Tina Del Twist's Comedy Canteen.
The Moosehead Gala finishes off the Comedy Festival for 2013.
Another really fun night at The Shelf which included American comedians, sketches and giant men carrying me yet again to the stage.
The second night at the Comic's Lounge involves an audience that loves to applaud and the work load seems excessive considering there is no solo show to promote.
