It was an interesting show last night.
Sadly, I was met at the door by a girl called Nicole, who informed me she couldn’t get into my show because it isn’t wheelchair accessible. I wasn’t aware of this, and felt pretty awful when I went on stage. Thankfully Nicole is able to download the show, so I made a point of giving her a shout out, but still, I wasn’t a happy bunny.
I was cheered up a little by the late arrival of a woman called Tricia – an 80 year old lady who was delayed because she was waiting on her tardy granddaughters. I brought Tricia to the stage and suggested we should create an unusual scene for the arrival of her granddaughters.
I asked if they were definitely coming, and Tricia replied “Yes I have their tickets with me”
I said “Well that’s not much f*#@en help is it, they won’t be able to get in”
And Tricia replied “I left them at the f*#@en door!”
I then dragged three fit young men to the stage, gave them instructions, and waited. The door staff informed me of the arrival of Brooke and Louisa, and to the strains of “The Stripper”, Tricia poledanced, while the three men gyrated around her. the whole thing ended when I removed my shirt, did a bump and grind with Tricia, then whipped her backstage for a quickie.
Apparently the whole thing was caught on video, and will be uploaded to Youtube at some stage.
Of course I took a photo and tweeted, it, asking for captions

The campaign to make Chris Hughes famous seems to truck along nicely. The only major development to take place last night, is that we realised that Federation Square is wheelchair accessible, so I invited Nicole along to take part in the on stage antics.
Basically, if we raise $20000 for The Simon Rhoden Foundation, Chris will strip to a pair of bike shorts in Federation Square this Saturday at 3.30pm. There will be a meat raffle, back up dancers, a 12 year old MC, and hopefully the Chris Hughes Calendar.
Last night’s calendar shot looked like this
We have now raised around $8000 for the Foundation, but still need the final $12,000.
Hopefully we’ll get some funding on Monday when Chris makes an appearance on the Triple J breakfast show with Tom and Alex. Tune in at 8.40am to hear how it pans out.
By the way, the new teaser video we made featuring Chris and The Doppelgangers has now been posted to Youtube here:
