5 Questions with Craig Annis

craigannisWhat is your favourite swear word?
I can’t usually swear in my day job BUT the best non-swear word I ever heard was a guy I knew who said the word ‘crumb’ as an expletive when he got killed in Call Of Duty. Try it, it’s the funniest thing ever!

What are you wearing?
Oh, behave! If I’m being COMPLETELY honest – my gym gear, just got back from a workout. I should have made that sound sexier… I’m wearing whatever Ryan Gosling was wearing in that movie when everyone thought he was at his sexiest. You should totally imagine his body with my head on it.

What is love?
I think this link explains it best… God Bless Haddaway!

What was the last show you saw, and how many stars do you give it?
Hmmmmm… are bands included? If so, The Lazy’s were truly FANTASTIC. They’re an Aussie Gen Y rock band who are so FREAKING AWESOME that Eddie McGuire once stopped in a laneway to listen to them and then got them on his radio show the next morning. I’ll be lucky enough to walk on stage to one of their tracks each night!

Is your new show going to be any good?
I can’t answer that! I’ll sound like a wanker… BUT it does have the BEST punchline I’ve ever written in it. When the comedy gods delivered it to me I had to pull over. Which was awkward, because I was on the Harbour Bridge and apparently traffic cops don’t have the same sense of humour. In short, my show’s a heartfelt celebration of life. It’s fun, thoughtful and involves an encore with a puppet that you never thought possible!
