I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here go through the torture we did. I’m writing a new show, and of course some of that material will be about my break-up (Creasey recently split with his American boyfriend of two years, Jeffery Self). It’s like therapy that people pay me for.
If you are going to break up with me then you are not going to escape having that out on stage.
I am basically the Taylor Swift of comedy – we are both leggy blondes who can’t keep a man, and then we write about it.
Unfortunately I can’t sing, but I’ll do the stand-up version.
The Just for Laughs shows saw me go to the Montreal Comedy Festival. All I wanted to know was, ‘Where does Celine Dion live?’ – which is kind of like someone coming to Australian and asking, ‘Where is Nicole Kidman’s house?’
The latest special is a ‘best-ofs’ of the last couple of years over there. This one features John Cleese, Steve Martin, Trevor Noah, Dame Edna Everage, and Adam Hills.
I do love Steve Martin, but Joan Rivers is my all-time favourite. I adored Robin Williams too.
Australian comedy is a little bit insular, but it’s nice overseas, we watch each other perform.
I live-hosted the Melbourne Comedy Gala and it can be harder being the host.
For one thing, you have to stay until the end and my attention span is shocking.
There’s so much going on and you still have to be funny.
A lot of people discovered me in the jungle (in I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here).
The jungle was harder because there were 13 others and you have no control. That and the fact you’re not eating makes it pretty tricky.
We were so starving our smell had enhanced so much that we could smell coffee like 100m away.
Chrissie Swan and I offered $4000 one day for one jar of Moccona (coffee) – we were going to donate it to charity for just one jar – and we didn’t get it.”
