Mess Around – Brisbane Night 5

Mess Around – Brisbane Night 5

Howdy all

I know, I know, this blog is a day late. And I know I am yet to post the blog from the last two Sydney shows. I am madly trying to finish the scripts for tomorrow’s filming of Spicks and Specks, having had four hours sleep last night, and flown from Brisbane this morning.

OK here goes:

The final night in Brisbane was a corker, and kicked into full swing when I found  this man in the front row:

I tweeted the photo and asked for your captions, then asked him his name.
It was Lex Kush. Next to him was his wife Leone Kush.

Leone then pointed out that the man next to her was a Wacker. A quick check of his ID proved it:


In fact, as Leone pointed out, his full name was Bruce Willie Wacker.

Next to Bruce was another Kush, then a man whose last name was Going. I checked his ID as well:


And was then informed that his fiancée was sitting next to him, making her a “Going To Be”. I took a photo of them:


Then asked if there was anyone in the crowd with the surname “Gone”. No one answered, but a woman up the back said “How about Goes?”

I checked her ID:

Then invited her to pose with the other two, to create the progression of “Going To Be, Going, Goes”:


I then asked if there was anyone else in the room with a funny surname, and was lead on a chase around the room that included Michael Hunt:


Christopher Ladyman:


And the winner, Rebekah Roots:

Rebekah informed me that a relative of hers had hypenenated her married name and is now known as Mrs Roots-Ross.

Eventually I returned to the stage, and was swamped by suggestions for a caption for this photo (as well as the locations of some of the tweets):

That concludes the Brisbane run – thanks to everyone at the Powerhouse for making it a joy, and thanks to everyone that came along ( it goes without saying that my stalker Maria was there every night). I am having a ball every night with this new show, and it is all due to the amazing people turning up to the shows.

Adelaide is my next stop from Friday, and with a bit of luck I’ll have posted the Sydney blogs by then

See ya soon

    Thank you for a great show last night.
    Have another funny surname for you – My mother’s maiden name was Freak and she was a nurse. Back then they used to call you by your surname so she was “Nurse Freak”.
    Thank you for making 2 ladies birthdays a memorable one.

    THIS is more like the show I saw. It was great. Fabulous!! I’d highly recommend it – pity it was the last night in Brisbane.
