Randy Writes A Novel
Sunday, abc comedy/kids, 8.40pm
When it comes to stand-up comedy, it’s not good form to comment on people’s looks. But in the case of comedian Randy, you can’t help but notice that he’s very purple with googly eyes and a soft, bald head. He is, in fact, a puppet. In this unique stand-up show, we’re invited to lock eyes with the unblinking, felt-faced, foul-mouthed puppet as he reads excerpts from his unpublished novel and muses on art and life in general. This Aussie show has been a hit here and overseas, with the meanderings of a puppet proving to be unexpectedly poignant.
