Humour

1 out of 30

I don’t know how many of you have read my 30 by 30 list on the right sidebar. Well, this weekend, I completed one of the things. (Go look)

I was part of the audience on a TV show. And one of my favourite ones. Good News Week.

Yep, this weekend, a friend and I, were part of the audience on Good News Week.

And it was quite an experience.

It was free to begin with. And then it lasted for 2.5 hours. It was like being at a comedy show with the occasional “take twos”. Paul McDermott, Mikey Robins and Claire Hooper engaged the audience big time along with the guests. The guests would not have been my first choice (if we had a choice) apart from Peter Berner. But they kept us laughing.

And here’s the funniest bit. My friend and I sat up on the 4th or 5th rows because we didn’t really want to be “in focus” but then, they did this bit on the show where Paul McDermott (the host) come up on top of the stairs….and he stood right in front of me! And when I took a peek at the television monitors, I could see a bit of myself. Sigh. So much for trying to avoid that. :p But we’ll see how the editing has been done…maybe I won’t be there after all!

All in all, it was a great Saturday and a great experience…something I definitely want to do again!

EDITED TO ADD: I just watched the episode of Good News Week…and I was on TV. Yes. Right behind Paul McDermott during one of the rounds. I have now been on TV and sung on the radio. Who would have thunk it? 😛

On a different note…I apologise for not being around and for not responding to comments. I will try and be more regular with my posts and responding to comments. I have been busy on weekdays and even some weekends now. But after March, I get about three weeks off from my community college classes which I am enjoying big time by the way!

Anyway, so how’s things going for everyone else? What’s been happening in blogosphere? Do update!

Until next time,

Cheers!!!

    I love being in studio audiences. My friend was on the panel for Q and A last year (on the ABC) so I got to go back stage beforehand and afterwards and met all the guests. And eat the yummy food they provided!

    Also been in the audience for the last episode of chaser’s war on everything, and a couple of years ago the audience for enough rope with andrew denton

    How cool! I have never been in a TV audience but it’s something I would love to do. Unfortunately there aren’t many shows taped in Adelaide. *sigh*

    I notice in your sidebar that you are reading Her Fearful Symmetry. What do you think of it? I read it a while ago and would love to hear your opinion!

    Nice! We didn’t really get to go backstage or anything so that was a bit of a shame but it was still a great experience nonetheless. You were on the last ep of Chasers??? Wow! That would have been so great…. 🙂

    Well, you should make a trip to Sydney or Melb in that case! =P

    I’ve finished about 3/4th of the book…it’s okay….not great but interesting enough to keep me going. The twins are so messed up though! Will be reviewing it on the book blog once I’m done.

    i was an audience member of good news week during it’s abc years. i was such a massive fan back then. was IN LOVE with paul.

    i still like it but i guess you get over things a bit when you start growing up.

    stopping by from 20-something, as promised.

    have a great weekend.

    Welcome Kate! I have only been in Aus for 5 years so hadn’t seen GNW during it’s ABC days but yeah, I do know you get over things when you start growing up….for instance, I’m not as fanatical about cricket as I used to be!
