Rugby League legend Jason Stevens answers fan questions on the opening night of his new comedy Chasing Comets, a semi-autobiographical movie exploring failure, faith & footy in a rural Aussie town. 23 Aug 2018.

Jason wrote the movie. It’s very good, very funny, very real, and very Aussie. Get along to see it if you can!

Jeff Green

I had the very good pleasure of meeting this funny bloke - UK stand-up comedian Jeff Green - after his hilarious show, 17 Mar 2017. He’s not just funny on stage, but off it too! Part of the Brisbane Comedy Festival @ Brisbane Powerhouse.

If you look closely you can see the cue for a new joke on his hand. No joke.

Ross - A Noble Comedian With My Sketch

This is pretty funny & random… So I’m sitting front row, centre at a comedy show at the Empire Theatre, Toowoomba by hilarious British stand-up comedian Ross Noble.

Late in the first half Ross looks right at me and asks, “What do you do?”

Me: I’m a designer.

Ross: What sort of things do you design?

Me: I’ll design anything.

Ross: Anything?”

Me: Uhuh.

Ross: So if I asked you to design me a Saint Bernard with eels for legs you could do it?

Me: Yeah, I’d give it a go.

And not long afterwards intermission came. During the break I took a piece of paper and did a sketch, leaving it on the very front of the stage, right in front of where I was sitting.

When Ross came back out he saw the piece of paper, went over, picked it up, read it, had a laugh & showed it off to the audience. He was pretty chuffed!

I asked if I could get a quick photo (at the very start there had been a big thing about photography being strictly prohibited). He momentarily paused the show and happily posed with my artwork. I was the only person to take a photo of Ross that night, and I got one with Ross holding a drawing of mine, even if it was only a quick sketch.

Pop Dad

A doting father allows his two daughters to dress him as Kratos (from computer game God Of War) and take him to the 2015 Supernova Pop Culture Expo. Very impressive, but he doesn't look very happy about it!

Actually he was more than happy to be there, and was pretty friendly. "RAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!"

Wedded Bliss

Ah... Does it get more beautiful than this? I love the differing expressions on everyone's faces. You get extra points if you spot the missing hat:)
