CRAIG’S COM­EDY BOMB

Woman’s Day (Australia) - - Celebrity News -

Ja­son’s not the only former Neigh­bours star whose at­tempt at com­edy has back­fired. In 2005, Craig Mclach­lan – who played Henry Ram­say on the soap for two years in the ’80s – per­formed a three-minute stand-up rou­tine on TV’S The Footy Show. He was so woe­ful the au­di­ence chanted “Get him off!” be­fore he’d even fin­ished. Low points in­cluded a lewd “gag” about Harold Bishop hav­ing sex with Bouncer the dog and a racially in­sen­si­tive ren­di­tion of his hit song Mona. Ear­lier this year, the Dr Blake Mys­ter­ies star was ac­cused of sex­ual mis­con­duct, which he has de­nied, while per­form­ing in The Rocky Hor­ror Show in 2014.

The ac­tor’s stand-up rou­tine was a fizzer.
