Interview #7 – Jimmy James Eaton – stand-up comedian

Heya! Welcome back to the weekly Hot & Delicious:Rocks The Planet podcast where we interview inspiring individuals from around the world in music, film/tv, fashion, comedy and lots lots more.

Today we catch-up with Australian stand-up comedian and improvisor, Jimmy James Eaton. 

Jimmy & I talk about growing up in Western Australia, the weirdness of watching porn with your mates, burlesque versus the strippers(I still don’t get the point of strippers), being inspired by Eddie Izzard, whether all flight attendants are gay and the selfless, amazing work Jimmy does as a superhero for charity outside of his comedy career… blows my mind.

Nath Valvo is turning 30 & damn funny!

Nath Valvo 'Almost 30'

After a swag of sold-out sessions at Melbourne Comedy Festival 2012, Nova FM radio personality Nath Valvo returns to MICF 2013 with a hilarious new show ‘Almost 30’.

‘Almost 30’ is a series of snapshots of Nath’s life so far as he regales us with outstanding and almost unbelievable birthday tales, including Mum getting drunk & re-enacting his birth in front of his entire 16th birthday party and being propositioned by a rather large gentleman at a gentleman’s club in New York City.

I was halfway across the world a few weeks ago when met Nath’s PR agent in Austin at SXSW and upon my return to Oz, Cara dropped me an invite to see his show. Generally I dread post-show catch-ups with friends performing, producing or doing PR for stand-up comedy, because in reality I’m genuinely only entertained at maybe 1 in 10 shows if I’m lucky. Comedy is so subjective and in my mind the toughest art-form there is.

Fortunately, Nath Valvo had me chuckling from word go, particularly when he grabbed 2 of my friends early in the piece from the front row (rookie error), blind-folded them and had them dancing like marionette monkeys to dub-step.. awesome!

Nath’s use of audience participation is fantastic, engaging crowd members in one-on-one conversations, flirting shamelessly with one in particular that caught his eye and pretty much the entire crowd are potentially props in a fast-moving set filled with cheeky quips and one-liners.

Nath Valvo scores a ✯✯✯✯ Hot & Delicious Rating.

Definitely worth fitting in your Melbourne Comedy Festival calendar if you’re chasing that illusive guaranteed laugh!
