Naomi Mourra is a comedian, improvisor and co-producer of a regular comedy night on the Sydney scene.
There’s a well developed sense of irreverance to her comedy – she’s not afraid to speak comedy truth to power. In her upcoming show for the Sydney Comedy Festival she tackles a little book called The Bible.
The release of this podcast also coincides with the 1-year anniversary of What She Said Comedy, Sydney’s only all-female comedy night. Congratulations to co-producers Naomi, Sophie Long and Alex Potter for pioneering this weekly night @ the Chippo Hotel – you can find them plus some of Australia’s best and up&coming women of comedy on the stage each Sunday from 6.30pm.
Stay up to date with Naomi and the What She Said Comedy crew’s goings on here:
My guest today on What I Don’t Talk About @ BBQs is professional actor, Douglas Spafford.
He’s had a long and winding journey from Birmingham in the UK through Scotland, the NT, Wagga and now to Sydney and this very day you can find him treading the boards, plying his craft.
During my conversation with Douglas I was reminded of the motto of my high school, St. Clair High in Western Sydney. It was three overlapping C’s, and you know what, I’m not sure if I’d ever committed them to memory then but I certainly can’t remember them now.
Talking to Douglas this logo reappeared in my mind and I found 3 ‘C’ words that really connected to who he is and reflect his own journey.
They are Courage, Confidence, Commitment.
Douglas is in this thing and giving it all he has, and that’s something to be respected and admired.
My guest today is, simply put, capital A, amazing.
Trish Morosin is an actor, writer and producer among other things.
What I admire most about Trish is all she has overcome to bring her creative vision to life.
Thirty, season 1, premiered in May 2017 as a 6-part web series. While season 2 has been filmed, Trish along with her fellow producers Madeline MacRae (who stars as Jess) and Sarah de Possesse (who stars as Bianca) still need to raise funds in order to have the show released.
Their goal is reach $20K in crowd-sourced funding and they have less than 20 days to do it!
You can help #teamthirty by making a pledge via their Pozible page here.
Here’s your chance to make a different. It’s all or nothing for Trish – you have to admire such creative bravery.
I certainly do.
