Showcase. No Bellamy to intro the show. Gina Yashere is up first. Great accent, great material, great delivery. She has to go through to the next round. Michael Williams of Warrnambool uses visual aids for his jokes, and they're not too shabby. (The jokes and the visuals.) He's different, at least. "Inside-out-cat" is a close second for joke of the night. Adam Vincent is up. He repeats his undercover Jesus joke and it's not much funnier than the first time. Fiona O'Laughlin's next. She jokes about smoking, and it's not as fresh as her first set. Claire Hooper jokes about an ex. Meh. Sam Borwing of Sydney does a segment about DVD anti-piracy warnings. Funny punchline. Lawrence Mooney is up. Instead of homophobia, he's not tackling xenophobia. I don't really see it, but the scouts seem to like him.
The results: Fiona O'Laughlin rightly makes it through. Love her! Next is Adam Vincent. Gah. I think Ant just has a crush. Gina Yashere goes through. Yay! One spot left: it goes to Lawrence Mooney. Huh. Fine, whatever.
And that's it! Next week: London and Minneapolis.
