PARIS GOOD FOR MILLSY

-

AF­TER spend­ing so much time talk­ing about Paris, Rob Mills is em­brac­ing the Moulin Rouge theme.

The per­former, who once had a fa­mous li­ai­son with Paris Hil­ton, has been tour­ing the coun­try with his show, Sur­pris­ingly Good.

He is now host­ing the up­com­ing Moulin Rougeth­emed Ep­worth Ball for more than 1300 guests on Au­gust 1 at Crown Pal­la­dium to raise funds for re­search grants.

“One of the rea­sons I had to put Paris in my show is just to say enough’s enough,’’ Mills said.

“But it’s an awe­some event and I’ll be host­ing as a Parisian ring­mas­ter for the evening.”

Mills said he had learned to be­come bru­tally hon­est while per­form­ing his one­man show.

“It’s been quite cathar­tic and I’ve be­come more self­aware,’’ he said. “You have to be bru­tally hon­est if you want peo­ple to re­spond and con­nect.”

De­tails at emf.org.au with Ep­worth Hos­pi­tal match­ing ev­ery do­na­tion dol­lar for dol­lar.
