Comment: the peace and joy of Christmas

Christmas has always been a special time, and it holds some wonderful memories of early years, when youthful exuberance shaped my world, and it’s a time remembered for the happiness of family gatherings and the sound of kids waking early to see what Santa had delivered.

denise-scottMelbourne-based comedian Denise Scott currently stars in the Aussie drama series Winners and Losers; she has been a regular on the ABC on Spicks and Specks and on Network Ten’s The Project.

She headlines at Currumbin RSL on Thursday. This is one funny lady.

When I was a kid I thought the world… was scary; every night I lay in bed terrified, waiting for the communists to invade, as the nuns promised they would.

My mother always told me… I’d look good with a home perm.

I think that God is… a being I don’t believe exists unless I’m in an extreme crisis.

Tony Abbott should… not wear Speedos or be leader of Australia. Both cause embarrassment.

When it comes to doing my bit for the environment… I compost, recycle and never do housework (thereby avoiding using cleaning products).

What annoys my husband the most about me is… my saying I never do housework because I care about the environment.

I love embarrassing my kids by… Actually I hate embarrassing my kids but when you’re in an un-airconditioned house and it’s 45 degrees what else can you do but walk around in your underpants?

At school I realised… I would much rather be at home living in a complete fantasy world.

The surprising thing about the world is… football. I cannot believe how in this modern complex world a group of men pursuing one ball can still create so much passion, endless discussion, news, violence and celebration.

What I like to give people when I’m on stage is… a good laugh but rather than give, I’m more motivated when people pay.

Denise Scott with Fiona McGary and MC Mandy Nolan at the Currumbin RSL on Thursday at 7.30pm. Members $39/ non-members $45.
