An announcement from our friends at Good News Week….
Paul McDermott, star of Good News Week, Strictly Dancing, Melbourne International Comedy Festival (MICF), Galas and Debates and the legendary comedy juggernaut the Doug Anthony Allstars (DAAS), is bringing his first ever solo shows to Brisbane, Newcastle and Canberra as part of a Spring offensive. Other capital city shows to be announced over Summer.
Paul Sings features a selection of McDermott’s original songs; from musical comedy trios DAAS and GUD through to those penned for TV shows Good News Week, Good News Weekend, GNW Night Lite, The Sideshow and MICF Debates and Galas, many of which were performed just once, only to be aired and forgotten…until now.
Prepare for a swoonful of Paul McDermott melodies interspersed with anecdotes from the seamy underside of showbiz, as the acid-tongued, velvet tonsilled, modern day song and dance man takes the stage.
Away from our screens, McDermott continues to immerse himself in his painting and filmmaking, but maintains his great love has always been performing. Relishing the chance to get back in the band rehearsal room, McDermott however jokes that after all these years he still hasn’t learnt a thing about music, so has enlisted the help of an all-star band for Paul Sings, led by the acclaimed pianist Stu Hunter (Katie Noonan and the Captains).
“If it wasn’t for YouTube, we wouldn’t be here!” said McDermott, half-jokingly of his personal record-keeping skills. In reality, it was long-time friend and GNW producer Ted Robinson who catalogued then shortlisted 40 of McDermott’s songs, otherwise lost into the ether, of which 20 or so will appear in the show.
Naughty, satirical, nihilistic and beautifully dark, with the occasional love song, Paul Sings will be peppered with seriously funny stories about what art and life have wrought this artist, writer and comedian, including more than a few glimpses of sunshine.
The serious side of Paul McDermott? Well, Almost!

Puppetry of the Penis announces auditions!
Puppetry of the Penis announces audition to uncover show’s next stars
Australia’s most successful comedy export Puppetry of the Penis announced an audition to discover the next round of puppeteers.
The audition, to be held at the Bristol Arms Retro Hotel in the Sydney CBD on April 16 at 6pm will see the show’s creator Simon Morley look specifically for puppeteers for its Australian tours and Private Party business where the current stars cut their teeth performing 20 minute shows.
Simon is also looking for Australian men who can speak basic Italian to be the faces of their first Italian show scheduled for late 2012.
The audition is open to any brave male looking to be paid handsomely in return for leaving his pants and shame at the door.
“We are looking for puppeteers who can not only perform the tricks but can keep an audience entertained and charmed for an hour. Successful auditionees who work hard can expect great perks including performing internationally at the world’s leading comedy festivals,” said Puppetry of the Penis creator Simon Morley.
Auditionees will be taken through a brief Masters Class in the ancient art of genital origami by the original Penis Puppeteer Simon Morley, including the art of the pre-show stretch. Auditionees will be expected to demonstrate several of the tricks they have learned before a panel of judges.
The panel will announce who has been successful at the audition and will contact that group within a week with details of whether they have been successful for the Italian show, Australian tour or Private Party business.
Puppetry of the Penis is an equal opportunity employer and welcomes circumcised and uncircumcised genital origami hopefuls. Participants must have own equipment.
