WOOHOO! In Adelaide? Please come! You can buy tix which will directly go to my fundraising total by donating here either: $40 – entry to the entire show and after-party. WOOT! OR $20 – entry to the after-party only. Make sure you write “Launch” or “After Party” in the notes of your donation and I will be in touch with your tix. It’s such a rocking line-up of entertainment, as you can see, would be rocking to see you there to send off me and my fellow TV fundraiser/adventurers on our wacky way. LET’S PARTY!

Yesterday we took the troops up to Hahndorf, a super cute German town just outside of Adelaide. We’ve been averaging one excursion out of the house each day which thus far, has been perfect. On this particular day however, Mister Three – and in all honesty, Mummy too – hit a wall of “fringe fest fatigue” and it all went downhill pretty damn quickly. What ensued was a full limbs-flailing, lungs peeling, strangers smiling in bemusement (at least I hope it was bemusement and not schadenfreude: DAMN I got to use that word in an actual legit German context!) and…

Crazy times, dear Tour Diary, crazy times. Highlights? – Representing Germany in the most fabulously funny and trash-tacular “EUROWISION!” alongside luminaries such as the Axis of Awesome (where I told them about my very own parody of their parody), Dave Callan (who I met by almost literally falling into his arms upon leaving the stage), Jason Chong and umpteen other cheese-tacular talents. SOO SOO fun! My mate Leon – rechristened “Helmut” for the festivities” joined me in a little Deutsch duo. And it was filmed! Will share it for sure once I’ve got my hands on the footage. Best crowd…

I got up yesterday and looked at my ticket sales and it hit me: only FIVE SHOWS LEFT?! What?! How on earth did that happen? I suppose the gazillion or so guest spots have distracted me from the reality that this roller coaster I’m on is actually coming to an end soon. I will not go quietly. This week has felt a lot more settled. Somebody told me yesterday that until you’ve done a month-long festival, you can’t really understand the rhythm of it. I guess the marathon comparison continues. Though in the spirit of full disclosure, I shouldn’t even…

Tis going so, so well. And I am so, so tired! Seriously, were it not for a spritely combination of the world’s best au-pair who completely “gets it” when it comes to the madness of this Fringe experience, good folks cheering me on and a rather unhealthy festival dependance on energy drinks, I would just about collapse in a heap. Which I plan to do at some point, but only if I can schedule it in. Above: my appearance on the online festival TV show, Festival Fishbowl! Today was what I hope is my last insane day for a while;…
