Joel can’t bowl

Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

PERTH co­me­dian Joel Creasey pro­vided the per­fect in­tro­duc­tion to the 27th West Aus­tralian Screen Awards last week.

The for­mer Wes­ley Col­lege stu­dent did not sur­prise the Heath Ledger Theatre au­di­ence when he re­vealed he had been the drama cap­tain since Year 8, go­ing through six drama teach­ers dur­ing his high school years.

Creasey re­called his ex­pe­ri­ence of au­di­tion­ing for a Milo com­mer­cial with a backyard cricket theme and fea­tur­ing for­mer Aus­tralian crick­eter Adam Gilchrist, both game and player un­fa­mil­iar to him.

He was asked to bowl a cricket ball, which he did, smash­ing an over­head pro­jec­tor. Need­less to say, he didn’t get the gig.
