We Love You! (As Much As Everybody Else Does)

THE HOLY GHOSTBOY and his collaborator, soundwizard SIR LADY GRANTHAM, cannibalise Under the Radar with their “one beast, one bitch” neo-cabaret comedy at Metro Arts this September. Limiting himself to a few choice ingredients, Ghostboy sets the record straight for ZENOBIA FROST on his relationship with Grantham, poetry, breasts and lunch.

ZENOBIA FROST: How did you and Sir Lady Grantham meet?
GHOSTBOY: In a pen factory. eating cheese. together.

ZF: How many dates did you wait before first killing your bitch on stage with The Golden Virtues?
GB: 1st date: cheese. 2nd: pens. 3rd: kill.

ZF: What does love taste like when cannibalised?
GB: Like long pig. Or bones with crackers.

ZF: Where’s your favourite place to touch your audience?
GB: Their letter box.

ZF: How do you keep cool in a three-piece suit during a hot, hot set of poems?
GB: I rehydrate courtesy of the third row.

ZF: You’ve toured this show to the Adelaide Fringe and National Folk Fest; what kind of reactions did you get?
GB: “Rye with too much ham” — Failed Actor.

ZF: What pen do you use when you autograph breasts?
GB: Breasts are better for short hand.

ZF: And, finally, what are mouths made for?
GB: Cheese. Ham. Breasts. Pens. Iceblocks. Never words.

We Love You! (As Much As Everybody Else Does) runs at the Sue Benner Theatre, Metro Arts, from 20 to 22 Sep, 2012. www.brisbanefestival.com.au
