Adventures in Adelaide Part II

Hello Chickens,

So, I did my show in the historic Queens Theatre in Adelaide, which was down the stabby end of Hindley Street. Hindley Street is the nightclub/stripperbar end of of Adelaide.










Then there is Rundle Mall, which is the shopping precinct, where DJ's and Myer etc are - that is the extension of Hindley Street.

Then there is Rundle Street, where all the restaurants and cafés are - which is just the extension of Rundle Mall/Hindley St. Look, there is more to Adelaide than the one big street, but you'd never know that if you didn't know where to look.

The Queens Theatre was built in 1840 and is apparently the oldest theatre on the mainland. It was only a theatre for a year, until the Adelaide Financial Crisis (oh yeah, that craps been going on forever) when everyone left for Bendigo and the gold rush. It's mostly been used as a carpark. First for horses, and then for motor cars. Now it's a Fringe venue. It's old and dusty and really atmospheric. I thought it was apt that I was doing a show about being unable to drive, in a car park, overshadowed by one of Adealide's many multi-level carparks in Playhouse Lane. (I've said it before, and I will keep saying it, not the city of churches, it's the city of multi-level car parks).

 More adventures in Adelaide soon, sorry about the shitty layout. I use a really dodgy interface to update my blog. Apparently I'm moving across to something called Drupal soon. (Which sounds like my sex drive after several pints).



Adventures in Adelaide

Hello Chickens,

Mamma had quite a fun time in Adelaide. As well as my show, Driven, at the Queen's Theatre, I did spend an inordinate amount of time at the Rhino Room doing the many permutations of their weekend late show, and a guest appearance at Nick Coppin's Shaggers.

Rhino Room

Given that the show was on at 11pm, Claire Hooper was there freakishly early!

Later that night, backstage, I got mooned by Mickey D. Pity I was a bit slow on the old Canon, all I got was undies up and pants on their way.

Backstage - Wil Anderson, Tom Gleeson and Justin Hamilton.

Mamma's been to the movies - for work.

Hello Chickens,

I have been a little bit nutty for the Twitter, as you may be able to tell, and I have been writing my Adealide show, and writing for another project that I can't really discuss here, but it is very exciting indeed.

I'm not going to tell you to donate to the bushfire appeal, that can be on your conscience, and you don't need people shoving that message down your throat on every portal you turn to. (Like Drew Barrymore with rejection in He's Just Not That Into You - btw, all the Drew bits are in the trailer).

I saw HJNTIY and interviewed Justin Long and Ginifer Goodwin, which you can find at the 9am website (if you can be bothered navigating through the bizarre video filing system they have, eventually you will find a video of me on there somewhere).

I didn't love the movie (yes, I lied to the stars - shocking!) I liked the Jennifer Connolly bits, although she did seem to be playing two characters, at home she was a romance-deprived controlling fishwife, but at work she was all fun and silliness. Jennifer Aniston was just playing herself, plausibly in love with marriage-phobic Ben Affleck, but the rest of the time she seemed to be looking down on her co-stars, especially in her family and office scenes, as if to say "Don't you know who I am? I used to be married to Brad Pitt!" Her hair is also too blonde and too long for her harried head, which is showing the distinct signs of ageing.

I also saw Watchmen and spoke to stars Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Malin Ackerman - more on that closer to release.

Don't forget I'm in Adelaide from 28th Feb until 8th March, swing by! Cheap midweek shows!

Cheers and Chookas
