Paul Foot is a well known face on the comedy circuit having regular appearances in London, the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in the UK and is back for the Melbourne International Comedy Festival.
With the most dapper of metallic stylings, Paul Foot is set to unveil his mysterious brief case full of new rants and tall tales at Melbourne's Hi Fi bar. He will appear on stage 22 times from 26 March to 19 April.
In an interview prior to his arrival in Australia, Paul Foot talks about his new show ''Hovercraft Symphony in Gammon # Major', whilst covering an array of other comical topics.
According to Paul the unusual title of the show has absolutely nothing to do with what is in the show, except perhaps suggests the tone. When asked about the content Paul says "It has all sorts in it. It's mostly lies, though. Brutal lies and meaningless life lessons."
Paul Foot actually started writing the Hovercraft Symphony on his tour of Melbourne last year, "Then I went away to Honk Kong for two weeks to do more writing. Then I honed it in Secret Shows in London and in the Edinburgh Festival last August. It takes time to make Symphony baybayyyyy."
When it comes to style, Paul Foot is right on bogan trend with his mullet that he keeps clean with ''lesbian salmon-liver oil".
Paul explains that he has his own designer, 'Sir Burlington Garter', whom is entirely fictional. This year the audience are in for a treat, as his next look will be space casual, "like an astronaut at a garden party or a housewife on a space station." Expect silver shoes and a new edition to his wardrobe, the 'leathair jacket'. According to Paul, it's like normal leather except massively more inconvenient because it dissipates in a light breeze.
"Let me just Google that and check for you. One second. Ah yes! I was born in the nineteen seventies apparently. Google also reveals that, yes, it is rude to ask how old someone is. However, my driving license reveals that I am 41. I don't know what to believe."
