Comedy. Evidence based musings! Swiv is preparing a speech for his son's 21st ... And struggling. What on earth does a Near Dead White Male say to his Son, The Triumph of Beard Oil? Join Swiv on a free dive into his past and our future. He emerges with pearls for his son, for all of us. On Gough and slippery dips, choc tops and, um, well, dick pumps. A rousing, ridiculous how-not-to-guide on parenting and politics in our arguably-a-bit-mad world. Simone Whetton, 702 ABC Radio called it "vulnerable, excoriating and hilarious in one loveable mixture!". Phillip Adams gave his last show, 'How Deep Is Your Love?' a much coveted a koala stamp. The Beat said it was "gripping and unique". Mark Swivel is almost certainly the only performer to feature on both Channel 10's Studio 10 and Radio National's Late Night Live in 2016. Go figure! In 'Dad. Joke.', Swiv answers every question a young person can ask from 'should men wee sitting down?' to 'honestly, what are we to do about this capitalism caper in our post-truth times?' He calls it a service to his generation, who have a lot to answer for … Dad. Joke. is world-changing wittering, brilliant banter. Warning: contains one dad joke per performance (mercifully brief).
