radio stars on stage
13 years ago, I made a comedy to escape the red bricks of Dole and the suburbs.
Daily breakfast show on Nova FM, a series of radio and television guest shows, live hosting shows a few times a week, movie characters, plus take away, feature films he wrote (
Will be released on August), the laid-back, self-
One of the busiest entertainment shows
If the most impossiblecross-
Media figures of his time
Then why did he choose to perform?
Appearing at this year\'s Melbourne Comedy Festival promises more late nights before he gets punished. 30am starts?
\"God knows why. I\'m asking myself the same question . \"
There is no doubt that O\'Neal reviewed his experience of joining the band, supporting geisha and appearing in the factory in the 1980 s.
\"Then we broke up, yes,\" he said with a blank face.
\"It\'s an opportunity to do something different, a story, a show.
\"O\'Neal is not alone among his radio colleagues --Comedy roots.
With a record number of radio character shows on this year\'s Melbourne International Comedy Festival, it is expected that some empty DJ chairs or tired sounds will appear on the airwaves in the coming weeks.
Host Dave Hughes had a show at the film festival, as did Will Anderson of the trio and Judy J Pickering of Fox FM
Hill and Joe Stanley, Lawrence Mooney with mixed FM, just to name a few.
For O\'Neal, live acting is an opportunity to exercise his comedy muscles and indulge his personal interests.
\"You get instant feedback when you do something live;
There is no limit to what you can do.
The audience will tell you if they don\'t laugh or like anything.
This is a very pure form of entertainment.
Live work keeps you sharp. . .
\"On the show, I often talk about post-80 s bands and bands, but my radio audience doesn\'t want to hear obscure bands like Wa Nee and Haircut 100.
I can indulge my own things.
\"Joe Stanley will also work with Joe Stanley to take advantage of her personal memory of 1980 people in Singapore.
Her memories and more than 1980 songs tell about her difficult childhood, looking for a place of her own.
She joked that she returned to the stage because she didn\'t get enough love when she was a child.
\"But, you know, you need to get this immediate response from the live audience,\" she said . \".
\"The radio is an exciting medium and you can do a lot of things with it.
But you have to get the audience to the climax in three seconds and you leave.
\"On stage, I have 50 minutes to create a work with highs and lows, light and shadow that will allow the audience to embark on a more exciting and satisfying journey as a performer.
\"Stanley uses her live work to measure how her jokes and comedy instincts work.
\"Your comedy mind, the funny bone you were born with, like any muscle --
You have to stick to it or it will become slack.
As the host of the Triple J drive project, 25-year-
Old Charlie Pickering is a rising star of local comedy.
He is now living in Sydney and before being invited to the breakfast show at Triple J by Anderson, he went to Melbourne first.
Although Pickering does not need to comply with commercial broadcast lines, he says his material is limited by the rules of broadcasting and content suitable for the mass audience.
\"I can\'t say \'John Howard is a tool\' because it\'s partisan and political and standing
You have complete freedom because you are a responsible person at the end of the show.
He said: \"His humor reflects how the media and people experience it, though more acute than pure observation comedy.
His two holiday programs, boiling point 2 and equal third, are not limited to politics, the media.
Based on or character-based comedy.
\"All I hope people get is Charlie\'s little taste of the world.
\"Radio and live performances complement each other for Pickering.
\"When you get back to the radio, making the audience laugh will greatly boost your confidence;
Because you believe that a joke works, it can make you more adventurous.
\"At the same time, the precise nature of the radio, where everything is much shorter and your explanation is much cleaner, teaching you a lot of skills you can carry with you.
\"Live performances also give the audience the opportunity to see what the radio host looks like and often come across shows full of strange humor.
Stanley\'s audience usually thinks she and
Host Judy Hill is older and \"heavier\" and often has the assumption of a lesbian.
Stanley said: \"It\'s interesting because we always talk about our respective [in the air [male]partners.
As long as people think I\'m funny, I don\'t care what they think I look like.
\"The audience thought Pickering was 10 to 15 years older than 25 years old, adding unexpected color to his ongoing radio program about co-rented families who have grown up and want to build houses separately
\"I must be the youngest, the middle --
If they think I\'m 40 years old, it\'s an old and dirty old man!
If I were over 25 I would hate me for being a twat.
\"But cross-border trends are nothing new.
As O\'Neal points out, Richard Stubbs and his former Graham Kennedy and Bert Newton were comedians before they became broadcasters.
Stanley praised radio hosts for working too much in the stands
Nova and Fox FM\'s \"coincidence\" date for on-
Air comedy team
O\'Neal points to a deeper trend. \"Stand-
\"Comedians are popular right now because they talk about their lives and that\'s the radio that people want right now,\" he said . \".
\"The people they want to be able to talk about the original things, it sounds like the real people, not the dj.
That\'s why I have a show on the radio because I speak like a normal person.
I always put words in.
\"In the 1980 s, there were people like Elliot high-foot cups.
But Surrealism is not as big as it used to be and there are no characters.
Now, more than ever, people want to hear about their lives.
\"Diversity means that few of these comedians need to worry about their careers if trends change, but O\'Neill has a rescue plan.
\"I \'d better start writing some jokes and come up with some weird characters.
