He’s The Willy Wonka of Weird, The Prince of Putrid, The King of Kids Comedy – and I got to ask him some seriously hard hitting questions, before he hits the stage for his upcoming shows in Melbourne! Yes, you guessed it, it’s the disgustingly distasteful Mr Snot Bottom!
Returning by popular demand, Mr Snot Bottom has promised a beautiful, elegant and polite piece of performance about homework, princesses and lullabies… So expect a horrendous hour of the most appalling acting, stupidest scripts and just-dumb dialogue in a putrid performance of horrid humour, that will make you absolutely, utterly… adore every minute!
Star of the ‘Busy Bodies’ podcast on Kinderling and a Best Children’s Event Award Weekly Winner at Perth FRINGE WORLD 2020, Mr Snot Bottom promises a snot-load of grosstastic gags, horrible harmonies and just wrong routines perfect for weird kids five and up and their even weirder parents.
First things first… How did your Mr Snot Bottom journey begin? Have you always loved all things gross?
Back in 2011 a friend asked if I could perform something at their child’s birthday party as they knew I had a background in stand up comedy and children’s theatre. I said sure and then they said their child was adamant I make lots of fart jokes. So I made up the entire character just for that party and it snowballed from there! So that one kid is entirely to blame!
Who was your favourite funny person when you were growing up?
The first stand up comedian I remember really enjoying and connecting with on TV was Jimeoin. When I grew up I actually got to introduce him on stage at a stand up show I was MC’ing which was amazing. It felt like a dream come true moment. For him as well I’m sure..
If you weren’t ‘Mr Snot Bottom’, what do you think you’d be doing right now?
I’d be Lady Gaga. Definitely.
We absolutely love your podcast!! Can you tell our readers a little about it?
Great thanks! It’s a ten episode exploration of the human body and all the weird, amazing, incredible and of course disgusting facts about it. The most downloaded episode is ‘Digestion’ – go figure. It’s produced by Kinderling and can be found on iTunes and Google Play.
Tell us your favourite disgusting joke!
Q. What do you get when you go to the toilet in your cereal?
I made that one up. Well I didn’t really make it up – it’s part joke/part autobiography.
Monty (7) wants to know if you have ever actually ‘snarted’… (sneeze -farted)
A thought-provoking question, I’m glad you asked Monty. I’ve never heard that term ‘snarted’ before- you should copyright it.
I’m not sure if this is classed as a ‘snart’ but I can actually sneeze out of my bottom. That’s why I’m called Mr ‘SNOT’ Bottom. I fart boogies. Instead of blowing my nose I blow my… you get the picture.
Your latest show is running from the 3rd-5th April at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival! What we can expect to see *or smell this year…. Eeek!
Well this year I’m trying something completely different. This year I’m promising a beautiful, elegant and polite piece of performance about homework, princesses and lullabies. It’s half politically injected social commentary – half Queen Elsa tea-party ballet concert. What can possibly go wrong…..?
Thanks so much for chatting to us Mr S B! We cannot wait to see the show, when it hits the Melbourne International Comedy Festival!!
