You kind of know your life isn’t going so well when you end up at the Astor in Perth doing your stand up. Part curiosity and part, I kinda love the crazy D lister with her slightly insane …. are the “Men in Black” behind me nerverousness….. made me go. I admire the Kathy Griffin spunk. She “literally” has had the rug pulled out from under her after The Donald photo shoot . She looked fragile and nervous when she walked onstage, a shadow of her former self. I couldn’t read the audience as she drew the weirdest demographic. However the moment she stepped on stage and people cheered, it was cathartic no doubt.
Her act revolved around The Donald and her fall from grace. I was hoping she would drop the whole The Donald is a Nazi routine after numerous nervous rants because she really didn’t need to . In between her desperate need to explain herself, she was actually funny. Love her or hate her , she is just a comedian. A comedian who stuffed up badly. But in this fickled world of entertainment surely they should throw her some slack. When Kanye went all dissy on TayTay it wasn’t long before his bad behaviour was swept umder the rug.
You could tell that Miss Griffin was just holding it together when nearing the end of the show she let the tears roll. For one brief moment the enormity of her plight could be seen by all. The Hollywood D Lister living next door to the Kardashians and who worked along side some of the biggest names in Hollywood was performing to a three quarter full theatre in downtown suburbia in the most isolated capital city in the world. That would make anybody cry.
You could tell she was shocked by her unexpected show of emotions but the crowd for the first time saw Kathy Griffin the person not the persona. And they loved it.
Here is hoping she can move on from The Donald and get back to being the D lister she really is!
A dude flying from Melbourne to Perth checked in his luggage…one can of Emu Export beer. Unsure if his precious cargo would arrive he was delighted when he made his way to the luggage claim and saw people laughing and taking out their phones. He later told reporters …“Sure enough there she was, alone on the carousel proudly making her way around. And there I was in my flanno and RMs to greet her. It was perfection.”
OK, firstly I had no idea it was a “thing” but evidently you can get zapped in playgrounds by static electricity. Who knew right? A playground in Perth has been closed due to “the high levels of static electricity it is currently giving off,”. Seems people with pacemakers or cochlear implants are most at risk . Hmm, and here I was thinking people who hate messy hair. The playground will be closed until further notice.
PSST This is why we are known as the State of Excitement!!!!
The home town of the Friggin Loon. Police are hunting down the culprits behind the motorised picnic tables.
One of the orang-utans at the Perth zoo attempted a great escape only to discover life wasn’t any better on the other side.
This is what happens in my home town every Monday morning on the way to work. Our whole city has sing-a-longs on the public transport systems because it is the happiest place in the world. OK, not really , but some clowns thought they would give it a try. Onya Perth.
When Perth has a hostage drama it goes all out. The hostage taker picks the best location (Middle of who cares) …… claims he has kabooms strapped to him……grabs a random as a hostage……..puts up a handwritten random note that no one friggin understands and picks the coldest friggin night of the year. Good job. Seems he has a beef with a report that hadn’t been released by the Crime and Corruption Commission.. Enter squat team, police, military, media, rubber neckers and national coverage. By morning the standoff had ended. That’s what happens when you fire non kill bullets at him. On the bright side everyone knows where Bunbury is.
