Well it's our final show of the Melbourne Comedy Festival tonight and tomorrow we'll be boarding the plane back to england. But what a month it's been. Let's bring you up to speed with what we've been up to.
We've played mini golf against Tim vine, gone to a water park, eaten kangaroo, graced the cover of a newspaper, made a cameo in the wrestling, had chinese massages, been to victoria market, and got very very drunk.
all in all, we've had a brilliant month and feel very lucky to have been part of it.
there are a few thank yous we'd like to throw out: to susan the festival director for inviting us out here, to rebecca & alana in the office for sorting everything behind the scenes, to rosie our ever-positive company manager, mary & the press team for their help, to matt britten for teching us so expertly and jeff at the venue for running our sound. we are very grateful to you all!
Melbourne is a great city, and we've ticked off almost everthing on our list of things to do while we're here - the only items we missed were a trip to Sydney as we ran out of time, and a tour of the 'Neighbours' set, much to david's disappointment. Ah well, Next time!
when we get back to the uk we have a week off, then we're in Brighton on Friday 2nd May, then on another plane to Estonia for a gig on 7th then back in London for the first of three huge 'Best Of' shows at the Udderbelly on the South Bank on Friday 9th. All details of our upcoming gigs are on our live dates page, so take a look if you fancy some live gimp action.
But that's all from down under. We have our last show to look forward to tonight, the farewell party afterwards, then tomorrow we'll be dismantling our crash test dummy, packing up all those wigs and dresses, stowing our gimp masks in our suitcases and heading home.
Melbourne, you've been beautiful.
