Eungella: Alleged domestic-related stabbing suspect charged with attempted murder

Comedian Lindsay Webb is one of the featured funny people at Falls Festival’s The Village.

Take a break from the cut and thrust of festival action at 5pm every day and chill out with a beer and a laugh for an hour of comedy with some of the country’s best.

This is what the world wide web had to say:

One of the weirdest things I’ve ever seen is… a lady’s eye popping out from my making her laugh so hard!

Apparently my most annoying habit is… snoring when laying on my back.

I love it when… I have time with my family at home.

My father always says… ‘May as well do it properly’.

The biggest disappointment for me was… elements of my childhood.

When I dance I… listen to music.

I am most comfortable when I… have eaten enough fibre and greens.

I would describe myself as… having a pretty good go at it.

My wife/partner would describe me as… loveable with traces of annoying.

My perfect day… is something I constantly chase.

My best gig involves… a huge crowd, fun people and a win for me.

My worst gig involves… a spruiker’s mic and fancy-dressed guests.

I have nightmares about… not making it to the gig on time or arriving at the wrong venue (I have never been late in 16 years of gig, never called in sick).

If I could choose the soundtrack for my own funeral the playlist would feature… heaps of dance music and ads about my life.

My greatest regret is… not having any answer for this question.

The world would be a better place if… we ALL just had some more compassion and forgiveness… oh and fewer weapons.

I am most passionate about… raising our children.

If I could be a world leader for a day I’d… extend that tenure by 12 months.

When I’m old I am going to… try not to be a grumpy old man.

When I wonder who I am I… wonder if it’s really me wondering!

The wisest thing I’ve ever heard is… advice from elders.

My greatest fear is… humans giving up.
