Rhys runs show at screen awards

Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

CO­ME­DIAN Rhys Ni­chol­son had the au­di­ence in the palm of his hand as host of the WA Screen Awards last week at the State The­atre Cen­tre of WA.

Those fa­mil­iar with his rou­tine will recog­nise some zingers but he had at­ten­dees in rap­tures of laugh­ter with cheeky jokes about hav­ing to put a Perth cof­fee on lay-by and land­ing in Perth on the week­end to find out about the hung Par­lia­ment.

“Co­in­ci­den­tally that was the name of the win­ner of the WA Porn Awards last week,” he quipped.

Spend­ing most of the awards pre­sen­ta­tion perched on a classy seat on the stage, Ni­chol­son high-fived win­ners who walked past him to col­lect their tro­phy.

The first six rows were re­served for VIPs, half of whom did not re­turn af­ter the in­ter­mis­sion, but those who re­mained cel­e­brated fur­ther at the af­ter-party.
