Have you heard the one about the late funnyman? It led Rob to Brisbane


All of it begins with Gran Gran’s final Christmas.

“I inform a narrative once I’m about 22 which is the about cousins on the marriage ceremony; and I inform one other once I’m about 25, the place I lie about my credentials and I get flown the world over to be a continuity knowledgeable on a function movie.

“I needed to study the career from a e-book on the airplane on the best way over,” he says.

Is it true, I ask politely.

“Totally. Totally,” Carlton chops in.

“And the story I inform is so excessive. The precise story is much extra excessive, however the one I can inform could be legalled. It’s bloody hilarious.”

Carlton was invited to the Brisbane Comedy Pageant three weeks in the past on the advice of the Canberra Comedy Pageant after one other artist was compelled to cancel.

“I advised them three weeks in the past the present is a 20-minute bump in, there are 5 lighting cues, no sound cues, there’s one prop – it’s a black chair – and I deliver it.

“If anybody drops out, I’m the simplest sub you’re ever going to have.

“That was 11am on the Friday.

“At 3pm on the Friday I get a name from the Brisbane Comedy Pageant director saying, ‘Rob, I’ve heard about your present. It sounds superb – learn ‘I hear its accessible and could be arrange in 20 minutes’.

“They confirmed me that venue, and it was like dream come true. A Spiegeltent-type venue for my kind of present. It’s simply so grungy and dwell.”

Rob Carlton is Clearly Disturbed, Friday and Saturday, 7pm; and Sunday, 6pm, within the Pleasuredome on the Brisbane Powerhouse.

Tickets from Brisbane Comedy Pageant or at Brisbane Powerhouse.
