When Simon Taylor was told there was a possibility he could become a father after one night stand, it gave him all the fuel he needed for a hysterical 60-minute show titled, Simon Taylor: Happy Times.

Performing at the Trades Hall in Carlton in the Quilt room, Taylor jokingly reprimanded my mother and I as we walked in a few minutes late due to a parking mishap.

"For those who have just come in late, I'm just starting now. What I said before this was just a bit of fluff". Taylor was on fire as went through the highs and lows he experienced after receiving a Facebook message stating he may be a father. He Googled everything from ovulation to pre-come and all in between to try to ascertain if he was the father given that there were two possible candidates. He even sought the help of his friend who is a doctor as they worked out the statistics. Taylor didn't lose momentum from start to end and kept the audience laughing as he took us on his nine-month journey.

Once again, my mother somehow became part of the show when Taylor decided to give a pass to the front row and chose the latecomers to help participate in the show. With some encouragement, my mother took to the stage to assist Taylor with possible dialogue that would transpire between Joseph and Mary in regards to the "supposed" immaculate conception. "It's that prick from Bethlehem, isn't it?" was one of the lines but my mum almost stole the show when she read out, "Is there a rectum policy?" instead of "return policy". The crowd were in hysterics and Taylor seemed thrilled that my mum added to the sexual overture of the show.

An incredibly entertaining and hilarious show by a very humble comedian.
