|Sorry for the delay in getting the January eNews to you. I’ve been a bit stuck about what to say. Announcing any upcoming gigs felt like setting myself up to have to unannounce them and I didn’t really have any words of wisdom for 2022, as things just went back to being so uncertain.|
After next month it will be the year of the tiger though, and that’s my year. So that’s something.
- 26th Jan – Queer Comedy Invasion day for Comedy at George‘s Bar Fitzroy, MC’d by my dear friend Michele da Costa. I’ll be there too. Hope to see you there.
- 30th Jan – Lemon Comedy for Midsumma. Lemon Comedy Pride Edition is hosted by radio personalities ‘Annie (also one of my favourite people and comics!) and Ando’ from JOY94.9 (Australia’s only LGBTQ+ radio station).
- 7th Feb (sneaking an early Feb one in, just in case I am late again) – Kent St, Comedy. I’ll be MCing in this great new room in Melbourne’s iconic Kent St Bar
|Day job news!|
In my day job I work at Seniors Rights Victoria (SRV).
SRV is a community legal centre, that supports people experiencing or at risk of elder abuse. I am not at the front line, having to deal with the very sad cases that come to us. Our incredible team of advocates and lawyers do that. I work on a prevention project, aimed to educate people to help them protect themselves.
During lockdown in 2021 I worked with Seven Dimensions to produce a series of videos to help people understand the importance of planning ahead and making sure people close to you know what’s important to you. I asked some friends to film themselves talking about what matters to them. I wrote stories about the ways that things can go wrong, even with the best of intentions. Despite the obvious challenges the world threw at us I am really proud of the result. You can view them here.
In February I’ll be (hopefully) heading to Hobart to speak at Seventh Annual Elder Abuse Conference – NEAC 2002.
