Adams Nectar Two – Part Five (Ring Of Fire)

Adams Nectar Two – Part Five (Ring Of Fire)

 

Hey there
I am going to be quite brief with this week’s blog, mainly due to the stomach bug that seems to be making its way around Melbourne, and that took hold of me yesterday. In fact, I’d like to apologise to all at the Nectar Lounge for the amount of times I announced on stage that I was about to shit myself. I’m still feeling the effects of said bug, so in short, here’s what happened yesterday:
After a week of fairly dodgy suggestions on this blog, I have been awarded a new nickname. Although “Footloose” made a good showing, as well as “MAB” (Missing A Bit), and Hannah Gadsby’s “Shanks”, it was decided that my new nickname is to be “Dread Pirate” – after the Dread Pirate Roberts in the movie The Princess Bride.
I’m pretty sure this is somehow connected to the fact that I have one foot, and pirates often have a wooden leg, although the Dread Pirate Roberts had two feet – but I can’t be certain.
The new name prompted an audience member to present me with a pirate bandana she just happened to be carrying around, which gave me an idea for next week’s show. As a challenge to myself I will host the final Nectar Lounge Trail Show dressed as Dread Pirate Roberts from the Princess Bride.
After suggesting that the show should be interrupted by a swarthy man who chimes in with “Hello. My name is Innigo Montoya. You heckled my father. prepare to die” I decided that the entire audience should come dressed as characters from the Princess Bride.
This prompted a shriek of disappointment from a lady called Laura, who has been at every trial show this year, but will miss next weeks instalment as she is having a back operation. To make matters worse – The Princess Bride is her favourite movie.
I offered to record next weeks show for her, and Laura said she will dress as Princess Buttercup whilst listening in her hospital bed…unless she can find a way to roll a bed into the Nectar Lounge. Which she seemed quite serious about doing. I replied “As you wish” – which for some reason got a round of applause.
Bazil, the audience member who promised us a dance routine, failed to deliver on said routine – blaming a missing iPod cord. This will be rectified for next week, when he will unveil a choreographed piece for us.
Meanwhile it seems that Ruth and Greg are preparing a report card for me, outlining my progress over the past few weeks. Ruth suggested it might not be good. I was too ill to care.
Finally, next week Britt will give her last solo singing performance, which will be included on a cd to be sold from the Adam’s nectar website www.adamsnectar.com to raise money for charity.
Of course, the stars are the comedians – and we were treated to some stellar comedy from Adam Rozenbachs, Ally Syn, Lawrence Mooney, Daniel Moore, Alison Bice and Carl Chandler. Along the way we raised another 350-odd dollars for Beyond Blue.
That’s all for this week – stay tuned for all the guff from the final show next Sunday, which will celebrate The Princess Bride in all its forms.
Stay well til then, and I’ll try to do the same
Adam
