THE co­me­dian, ac­tor and broad­caster is best known for his over-the-top al­ter ego Bob Downe, aka the Prince of Polyester. Trevor­row trained as a reporter with be­tween 1977 and 1981, along­side fel­low comic Wendy Harmer, be­fore leav­ing to be­come a cabaret per­former and ac­tor. He lives in a Span­ish-mis­sion-style apart­ment in Syd­ney that he has ren­o­vated with his part­ner, Ste­fan El­liott, an in­te­rior de­signer and ar­chi­tect. He is bring­ing Bob Downe to pas­sen­gers on the cruise ship for a P&O Com­edy Cruise, depart­ing Mel­bourne on Fe­bru­ary 24 (pocruises.com.au/cruises/com­edy/e712n).

If I am on a cruise to per­form that night, I will make sure I rest up be­cause it’s im­por­tant to con­serve my energy. If I am at home, I will sleep in a bit more but Ste­fan will be up early and he will have done a run by the time I get up. Then we will spend the morn­ing en­joy­ing brunch at a cafe or see­ing friends.

I am a very good cook. When I left home, I wasn’t that in­ter­ested in cook­ing or learn­ing to cook, but once I got to my late 30s I started to be­come in­ter­ested. Once you have the ba­sics down, cook­ing is not hard.

My best friend’s mother taught me a de­li­cious way of mak­ing lamb chops. You crumb them with a 50/50 mix­ture of bread­crumbs and fine-grated packet parme­san and then you chill them and re­peat the process again. Then you driz­zle them in olive oil and rose­mary and bake them in the oven slowly for 10 to 15 min­utes and they cook inside the crumbed cas­ing.
