The Melbourne Comedy gala

I was watching this on television last night. I enjoyed most of the acts except for that one comedian with the cardboard box. Do you remember that one?

A short synopsis: Comedian arrived on the stage with a box. He started cursing and pretended that he was in a hurry and therefore required a volunteer. Pulled this poor fellow onto the stage, and attempted to stuff him into the box, in the process, hit him on the head with the microphone.

I don’t think I would have enjoyed being dragged, pulled and hit in the head. If I had been the girlfriend, I think I would have been tempted to hit the comedian in the groin … I didn’t think he was funny at all. I guess the audience were too polite to jeer and I hope it was all staged!

    hey. i thought he was great! it was something different and if that guy (and his girlfriend) didn’t have a good enough sense of humour to find it HILARIOUS they shouldn’t have wasted their money on front row tickets…

    hahaha, i thought it was funny too, i have that kind of immature sense of humour though – i find swearing and abuse hilarious.
