Wayside Makeover

“I love how this old place has scrubbed up. We’ve made such a beautiful and special place out of nothing. We scrapped everything together – Sewed the curtains for the change rooms, donated stuff from our own homes, salvaged gems from street collections, even the frangipani outside the shop are from a council throw out. Most of all, it’s been made with a lot of love”.  Lara Esden, volunteer and worker with Wayside Chapel. This is...

Lou Pollard: A Passionate Fool

Comedy is about telling the truth. I tell it both in my stand up and in my work with families as a Clown Doctor. “Clown Doctoring is mostly improvisation and sometimes our work is about naming the elephant in the room, saying the things that other people need to hear but are too scared to utter out loud, but always with a great deal of sensitivity. Our main priority as Clown Doctors is to be highly tuned to the needs of the sick child...

Sydney’s Secret Pin Up Survey

I bumped into the movie remake of Arthur on telly last weekend. I had to watch it. Skinny, well dressed, funny men in rom-coms are hard for me to resist and leading man Russell Brand fit that bill. The original Arthur starred one of my first funny man crushes, Dudley Moore. He and Dustin Hoffman ran a close race for quite some time. Unfortunately, despite a great cast I’m sad to say I’ll never get that 107 minutes back...

Lou has my vote this Sydney Comedy Fest

When Joe Hockey left politics, comic Lou Pollard stood as a candidate for the by-election in his blue-ribbon Liberal seat of North Sydney. Many of her friends thought she was joking when she decided to run for the newly-formed Arts Party as their first-ever candidate, but her teenage daughter told her, “At least you’ll get a good comedy festival show out of it mum.” From the ballot declaration where Lou sat behind...
