- me not having any ideas that I thought were worth doing
- working on Complete First Season material (some of which is up on the The Complete First YouTube Channel)
- being busy with preparation for Les Miserables (for which tickets are now on sale)
- other personal issues that I won't go into here but know I wasn't in a happy place. I'm still kinda there, but more on that later. Maybe.
This most recent one I wrote for 22 Sketches... back in November and was one of the songs I did at my first open mic at the Newmarket Hotel. It didn't go down that well at Newmarket, but it got a HUGE laugh and cheer at both of the 22 Sketches performances. I have video of it live, but it's out of focus. So here it is: my one joke ode to Brisbane drinking venues.

Last year, you'll have read - and you can find the blog post about it - that myself and a handful of mates entered a competition for ABC Radio's Comedy Hour project, being launched by Adam Hills, as a means of emulating the radio comedy legacy of Aunty's mother radio network, the BBC.
The pair are currently writing the scripts for Bigipedia, described as 'a malevolent mix between Google. Microsoft and Wikipedia'.
Kirshen says he finds the 12-hour days preparing for the show gruelling, writing on his Twitter page: 'If I'd worked this hard at uni I wouldn't be in comedy.'
Doody has previously described the series as 'a piss-take of Wikipedia, with all the same inaccuracies, written by nutters'.
The show will be recorded from this week, and go out in late July. It was commissioned from independent production house Pozzitive following a successful pilot last year.
