I wasn't there, but... "I love that distinctive Geoff Toll opening line - the close-miked 'Circus Ozzzz' from behind the drum-kit... sets the tone of ironic celebration." (David Carlin, 1/12/2012 9:41:00 AM)
I wasn't there, but... "Doesn't Tim look so young! All that high-wire practice outdoors in Adelaide paid off here at the Last Laugh." (David Carlin, 1/12/2012 9:43:00 AM)
I was there, and... "That's me in the fluffy frock and clown wig. Believe it or not that's Tim Coldwell and Stephen Champion on the high wore over the heads of the audience without a safety net. How lucky were they? Exercises for the over thirties - I remember when over thirty was OLD. Me again dressed as a kangaroo. Ring juggle - Hours of practice and a lot of 'collective discussion' went into this. We made our own rings from slices of plywood and cloth tape. On the Web - looking good in lycra!"
