I just want to pop him on a bit of toast and eat him right up.

Yes. The Kwiz is open to the public. I first found out about because Learning for Life advertised it during the 3AW Breakfast Show.

So can anyone go to this annual Kwiz?

I used to serve Tony Martin regularly at a Malvern cafe i used to work at. Around 2006/7.

And i bumped into Mick Molloy at the Sporting Club in Brunswick watching the footy (he stood with me and my mates saying funny stuff the whole game drinking beers) and when we left we bumped into him (much) later that night at rock'n'roll venue Yah-Yah's in Smith St Collingwood where he was smoking ciggies out on the footpath telling people how good Sonic Youth were. This was all 2010/2011.

I met Judith Lucy in Adelaide in 2009. She was doing a photo shoot for an article in the paper about the Fringe. Lehmo was also on the shoot and he seemed really put out that (a) I didn't recognise him, and (b) I didn't really care when he introduced himself to me. Judith is lovely.

Something for Snato fans ... earlier this year, I met Santo in Sydney. He was visiting the Picasso exhibition at the Art Gallery of NSW and happened to be going into the same session I was. He is a really nice guy, and very talkative!

Tony Mick & Jason were regulars at the Prince Pat's comedy night "" The Cheese Shop"" in the 90"s (both on & off the stage) - always up for a chat. Also recall Judith doing early shows there.

At work back in April, I mentioned to a customer about attending a show at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival.

The customer mentioned to me, that her daughter had met Judith Lucy, and added that Judith was "really lovely."

I used to spot Alison Whyte (Emma from Frontline) at my gym.

Peter Helliar, (once a guest on Thank God You're Here), attended the same gym I frequent, too.

He was once a presenter on the same Community Radio station that I presented on.

One of my cousins worked at a hotel in East St Kilda.

He lived nearby, and used to see Tony at a local cafe.
