Dead Funny In Australian Penthouse

My humour piece is out in the current issue of Australian Penthouse. It's five short interviews I recently did with comedians Bill Hicks, Lenny Bruce, John Belushi, Richard Pryor and Peter Sellers, all of whom are quite dead. It was fun to write and if you live in Australia please go out and buy it and if you enjoy it write to the magazine and tell them you think they should use me a lot more. Ta.

Wicked. I'd buy it if I were in Oz. But sadly, I'm in the midst of a cocking snow storm. Please post the article if you can. Ta.

I will buy it, Lee. I've always wondered if Lenny Bruce swears as much since he's been dead ...

A cocking snowstorm. The mind boggles. I will send you a copy of the article.

Please do buy it Meva. Make all your friends buy it too. Tell strangers in the street to buy it. Buy copies as gifts for friends and family and workmates...

And in answer to your question, yes, Lenny does swear as much in death as he did in life, as you will find when you read my brief interview with him.

Is it anywhere online? Alas I am in the wrong country otherwise.

I don't think it is online, Bird. I'll send you a thing. Or I'll post it here, even though I don't think anyone is really going to get what I did.

It was fun, but.

PS, It would be nice if you were in the right country.

Now I can finally say I read it for the articles. God bless you, Mr Quick.

This was my master plan, Boy Wonder.

Hey there Mr Quick,

Thanks for reading my blog - good luck on your adventures as a writer. I love the Penthouse article idea - very original. I love Bill Hicks too. I'll try to pick it up. Is it weird for girls to buy Penthouse? I don't know these things.

Hello Girl Clumsy. I like your blog and I will be back to visit. I've had lots of adventures in writing, often quite good ones. Re the Penthouse article... after interviewing The Wetspots from Canada today, I don't think a girl buying Penthouse is the least bit weird. But if you feel thing about it I will be posting a copy of the piece here soon.
