What to expect when you’re not expecting X: The Great wall of Gyna

Back to hopeful again. Boy. We had our follow up appointment with the specialist to find out what the hell happened and why we had the unforgivingly named “total fertilisation failure”.

What to expect when you’re not expecting IX: The Mental Load

There’s this amazing web comic floating around that talks about the mental load that women are often asked to bear when it comes to household chores.

What to expect when you’re not expecting VIII: Having a break from Ms Ivy Eff’s wild ride

So I had it reported back to me that the last post was really sad. And I was sad. Just to get this out of the way early and prepare any readers still with us, things haven’t improved.

What to expect when you’re not expecting VII: The baby room

If we go back a few years, when Kim and I thought that we’d be popping out children like we saw most of our friends were, we’d see Kim and me slowly accruing stuff that a baby would need.

What to expect when you’re not expecting VI: Some good news for a change

Christ this is some rollercoaster. It’s way more exciting than the rollercoaster they had at that Footrot Flats themed park that used to exist in Auckland. That was the first rollercoaster I ever went on.

What to expect when you’re not expecting V: Round II. Fight

Kim and I have discussed a lot whether this is our second round of IVF or our first since we had to abort at such an early stage last time. Can you say abort when talking about IVF? I’m not sure.

Comedy fest review: Rose Matafeo in Sassy Best Friend

I said it in the tweet immediately following the show, and I’ll say it again, Rose Matafeo is a national treasure.

What to expect when you’re not expecting IV: the waiting game

So it’s been nearly two months since my last post. In that time we haven’t magically discovered a baby growing in the garden; so this isn’t the update where we all go wahey! Success!

Comedy fest review: Tessa Waters in Over Promises

What an utter fucking delight. Such a joyous wonderful, feel-good, bizarre funny show. This is a show I’ve been struggling to think of how to review. Because to reveal too much would be to spoil it.

Comedy fest review: Tony Woods

I was nervous about this show. I’d heard that Tony’s performance in the gala had gone to places that I’d probably not be a fan of and so I approached it with some trepidation. I left with a feeling of delight and joy.

Comedy fest review: Gordon Southern in Long Story Short

Comedy fest review: Gordon Southern in Long Story Short

Gordon Southern is a polished, slick comic. His show, Long Story Short, is a rollicking hour of puns, raps, gags, stories, frenetic energy, sound and light and one of the most delightfully likeable comics I’ve seen.

Comedy fest review: Joel Hansby & Josh Davies in Dorkward

There’s awkward comedy where we cringe because of the awfulness. Think Larry David in Curb Your Enthusiasm or Ricky Gervais in his entire life

Hell of a show title. In the annals of comedy fest titles that are memorable this is right up there.

Comedy fest review: Dusty Rich and the Voices

I had a wee bit of trepidation about seeing Dusty Rich. A friend of mine had seen him in First Laughs and thought that he hadn’t been great, and there’d been an undercurrent of homophobia which is not something I’m that keen on seeing in a show. Unless the punchline is the homophobic. However everything turned out great in the end.

Comedy Fest review: Savanna Calton & Sera Devcich in Unstoppable

Savanna Calton and Sera Devcich are two up and comers in the NZ Comedy scene and they both have a very bright future ahead of them if Unstoppable is anything to go by.

Comedy fest review: Laser Kiwi

Comedy fest review: Laser Kiwi

Laser Kiwi is a show put on by Imogen Stone, and the Jarvie brothers – Degge and Zane. The trio take the approach of flinging out as many ideas as possible and seeing what hits. If you’ve ever played Smooth Moves on the Nintendo Wii, then it’s sort of like that. Only funnier.

Comedy fest review: Guy Montgomery in Let’s all get in a room together

Guy Montgomery is one of those comics that if you tried to regale your colleagues with his best bits after seeing him, it wouldn’t work.
