Tell us about your show, Storm Stud.

Storm Stud is a musical comedy show all about bad, often unsolicited, advice that I’ve been given over the years. Featuring incredible (very hand-made) costumes, and pumping original choons, this show is a high octane romp through my synapses. Think of it as observational comedy, but from a completely different angle.

It is so fun to perform, and has been such an enjoyable process to write. It’s really cathartic to sit down and write jokes about things which at the time made me a bit annoyed.

And I like to think of it a bit as me sticking two fingers up to the people that have been rude to me, but in a way where everyone’s laughing at them for being such a fool, instead of the mean advice givers laughing at me. Screw you meanies and bullies!!

What inspired you to write a show about bad unsolicited advice?

Well, initially, the show was going to be based on a particular book that I was reading, because I found the advice in the book incredibly hilarious. And as I started to write the show, I realised that I had been given bad or unsolicited advice so many times, and most of it even more ludicrous than that which was in this book. So I sat down and thought about all the ridiculous things people have said to me throughout the years. And then ... tahdah ... these mad-capped songs and ideas just came out of those stories and memories.

What’s the worst piece of advice you’ve ever received?
