January eNews

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
So excited about this!
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.
Me talking about series things
Over and out until February….
