LOL at Brisbane Comedy Fest Gold
He’s back baybaaayyyy! Paul Foot has touched down in Brisbane and took the Brisbane Comedy Festival by the cojones. In his new show, Paul considered the unique predicament of soft-shell crabs as well as the numerous problems that arise from organising a suburban orgy (the catering is an absolute nightmare!). We spent the evening pondering life’s imponderables with Paul, and bring a notepad, you never know when those orgy tips will come in handy.
