Cab-savvy duo keep whin­ing

The Advertiser - - CONFIDENTIAL -

THE self-de­scribed som­me­liers of com­edy, Paul Calleja and Damian Cal­li­nan, feel right at home at the Na­tional Wine Cen­tre.

In town with their hit show, The Wine Bluffs, at the Ade­laide Cabaret Festival, the pop­u­lar duo were only too happy to un­cork a lo­cal drop or two be­fore their visit came to a sud­den end.

“I as­sume we were in­vited to the wine cen­tre to be in­ducted into some Hall of Fame or be­come life mem­bers, which made it even more sur­pris­ing that we were charged an en­trance fee,” Paul tells Con­fi­den­tial.

“The venue was amaz­ing and su­per fun un­til we got kicked out for putting some of our posters up.”

It’s been a busy few days for Paul and Damian, who also hosted the Ade­laide Cabaret Festival din­ner this week, where they met an­other wine le­gend, SA’s Grant Burge. “To meet Grant, who is an icon of the Aus­tralian wine in­dus­try, we were pretty ex­cited about that. We can only as­sume he felt the same way about meet­ing us,” Paul says. “We had a quick chat about po­ten­tial col­lab­o­ra­tions that he said he’d get back to us on, which is pretty much a ‘yes’ as far as we’re con­cerned.” SEE: THE WINE BLUFFS, FESTIVAL THEATRE BAN­QUET ROOM, TONIGHT AND TO­MOR­ROW
