Happy Birthday To Me

The year was 1968. Bobby Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr were assassinated, Nixon was elected. Saddam Hussein gained power in 1968. So did Yasir Arafat. And, closer to our hearts, it was the year Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark was born.

Co-incidentally 1968 was the year that the award-winning Rod Quantock first strolled onto a stage. (“Quantock is an amiable buffoon.” The Melbourne Herald. 1968)

Now, fifty years on he’s still at it.

Happy Birthday To Me is a walk down Memory Tollway (Rod remembers it when it was a Lane) with a foundation member of contemporary Australian comedy.

From his first routine in the Melbourne University Architect’s Revue to his musings on contemporary events, Australia’s most seriously funny comedian Rod will reflect on the things that have made him and you laugh for the last five decades and set a course for the next ???? decades.

(PS. See him before he dies.)
