SHORT & SWEET
You’re a comic, TV and radio host, author and journalist. Isn’t it a bit rude to hog all the talents? Nobody said I did any of those things well. I keep it fair by showing no sporting prowess whatsoever. Name another thing you’re rubbish at. Returning people’s texts. I could get a group text from Obama, Bono, Oprah and God, and I’d forget to reply. Two years later, I’d remember and text them saying, “You still up for that fondue party?” Hosting The
Weekly must be demanding, in terms of suit rotation and tie-choosery. It has been in the past, but this year I’m considering following Karl Stefanovic’s lead and having only one suit.
