Is hydrogen part of a sustainable energy future?

There’s a lot to like about hydrogen. For starters, it’s abundant. Hydrogen can store excess renewable power. When liquified, it’s more energy intense than fossil alternatives. In a fuel cell, it can generate electricity. When it’s burned, the only by-product is water.

Thousands of sober stoners march for drug law reform in Nimbin

Nimbin HEMP Embassy President Michael Balderstone said he was surprised at the high turn-out, given a heavy police presence on streets surrounding the rainforest village.

It’s one hell of a mouthful, and it’s one hell of a lineup. With Dave Thornton as MC and featuring Josh Earl: a hip, sharp, loveable musical comedy star in the making. He has consistently moved through the ranks, supporting Rod Quantock and Arj Barker in his early years on stage. As a solo artist he now sports five sold-out festival shows under his belt.

Josh also writes and performs the Lime Champions sketch show on Melbourne radio Triple R and has appeared on Triple J, ABC local radio 774, Stand Up Australia comedy channel and the Laughapalooza DVD.

Also featuring Tommy Dean: Arizona raised, now a resident of Sydney, American standup comedian Tommy Dean occupies the top echelons of Australia’s headline comedy artists. Tommy’s astute, clean, observational comedic style consistently makes him a standout winner with the theatre audiences, corporate clients, festival producers, TV and radio shows alike.

Kate McLennan has gained a reputation as one of Australia’s funniest ladies, most notably working as a character comedian on The Mansion for the Comedy Channel and the 2009 Logies Road to Gold sketches. Most recently Kate was named The Age M-ie magazine ‘Comedy Star on the Rise’ and awarded the Kit Denton Disfellowship with co-writer Kate McCartney to develop their TV series Bleak. Kate will perform her new solo show Homeward Bound, which blends standup and her trademark characters, for the 2012 Adelaide Fringe and Melbourne Comedy festivals.

And introducing Kevin Kropinyeri – one of the fastest-rising stars in Australian comedy. He’s a one-man whirlwind that will have you holding your sides laughing, as he shares tales of growing up, marriage and the particular, absurd challenges of life as an Aboriginal Australian family man. A high-energy performer, Kevin is sharp, likeable, silly and measured; mixing keen observational standup with joyfully ridiculous physical comedy.

Tomorrow at the Ballina RSL. Doors open 7.30pm, show starts 8pm. $25pp.
