FROM THE DESK OF...
Paul Ego here...

Paul Ego here, typing to you from Devonport, home of the NZ Navy, home of Lorde and home of me. I have a lot in common with both of these local success stories - just like the NZ Navy I tend to just sit around a lot, waiting for something to happen. And I can’t swim.
And Lorde and I could be twins – we are both from Devonport, we are both happiest when we’re on stage and we are both 17 year old girls (Ok, that’s not true… I’m actually from Avondale, I moved to Devonport in my 30s).
In other news, my Festival show Amazingballs is now written. And yes, I’m aware it makes me sound like a very dodgy circus performer – “Cast your eyes ladies and gentlemen to the Vaseline Pit, it’s the one and only Amazingballs!”.
I can assure Festival audiences though that mine are just ‘ok’ rather than ‘amazing’. Plus I have no budget for a pit anyway. So if you’re expecting to be testicularly blown away at my show, I’m sorry, that’s unlikely.
I can promise you though that Amazingballs will feature me being more skux than I’ve ever been before, which is really saying something.
And if that’s not enough of a draw-card, Lorde has promised to sing my show theme song live each night. And if she can’t because I haven’t asked her and was lying just then I’m sure the NZ Navy’s available.
