They were going to hire me. I even had a meeting with them. Then they decided not to. Shame. Oh well..

  1. They started off scripted and then more and more they became ad-libbed. We constantly tried to crack each other up. Jemaine always broke first, he's a big laugher. The 'we shouldn't be arguing in front of the map' was completely made up on the spot...
  2. Jemaine directed 2 episodes of my new show Short Poppies. Of course the 3 of us will work together again one day, it's just a matter of someone getting us together...

I like it when Murray takes the band on the road. The swearing break down and the leather jackets! Oh and the mixed nut caper of course.
