ABC TV’s Funny man, media entertainer and radio host Peter Berner, is seriously funny. Maybe you only know Berner as host of The Einstein Factor or BackBerner, and if that’s the case you have missed out on one of the smartest standups we have. Berner is adept at tackling a broad range of subjects, from bad knees to politics to being a dad at 50.
If I had a day alone with Tony Abbott I’d… spend it listening to the Best of Bette Midler.
The problem with climate change is… having to carry an umbrella all the time… just in case.
One of my greatest strengths as a father is… a good credit history.
I am at my best… when no-one is looking.
If I got into politics the first thing I’d do is… take a helicopter ride.
The worst thing about getting older is… I’m no longer under warranty.
The best thing about getting older is… being able to be ‘old-people honest’ about everything.
When I look back at how I dressed in the 80s I think… why didn’t more people follow my lead and dress like Dave Sullivan.
People who believe in conspiracy theories… are hiding in my attic.
In my wildest dream I… get a tax refund.
I once dreamt I made love to… an alien… but it WASN’T a dream. I swear to God!
The strangest compliment I have ever had… was from a prison doctor.
The one place I wish I never went was… if I couldn’t tell my therapist I’m sure as hell not telling you.
I am often mistaken for… the guy from Breaking Bad, but usually only by people I’m selling meth to.
When I drive I… assume everyone else can’t.
When I am onstage I… am at peace.
