Last night, my brother and I attended the second Kwiz for the Kidz at the Shoppingtown Hotel in Doncaster.
Again, former D-Generation members Rob Sitch, Tom Gleisner, Jane Kennedy and Santo Cilauro were there amongst the celebrity team captains.
The other people on our table were Late Show
fans as well. They wanted to call our team 'A S***load of Dim Sims' (in tribute to Bargearse
Our team captain was Tom Gleisner. We enjoyed his presence, since last year, our celebrity was a dancer from Dancing with the Stars
. It was enjoyable discussing answers with him, especially the visual questions, like identifying flags, and musical questions to do with one-hit wonders.
Tom's kids were there too. His son ran the audio equipment, and his daughter helped with some things on the stage area, and serving food.
During the interval, I met and spoke to Rob Sitch. He shook my hand, and I told him that I had been a fan of his work for twenty two years.
What did we talk about? Well, for a start, he told me that I didn't look thirty five, and wanted to know what my secret was? Rob asked me if I ate a lot of broccoli? My brother interjected and said something about "clean living."
Rob said he was glad that people still remember the D-Generation material. He then went on to show me his new iPhone.
Rob smiled when I asked him, "Is this your new toy?", as he showed off some of the features, like being able to read foreign newspapers on it.
Next, I met Glenn Robbins. I just said a polite "Hello Glenn", and told him that I had been a fan since the days of The Comedy Company
. We shook hands, and he said "lovely to meet you." He then mentioned that he hadn't performed as Uncle Arthur since 1989.
Finally, I met Santo. I introduced myself, saying "I've been a fan of your work for twenty two years."
At the end of the night, our table came equal fourth with about three other tables.
Here's some links to my photos from the night...
