Guerilla Law – how to get a divorce

28 July 2011 | Published in Archive of Everything, Audio, Blog, News, Radio Atticus | Comment

I set up my ‘free legal advice’ stall at the Kiama Seaside Markets. A guy called Carl sat down and told me he had been separated from his wife for years and wanted to know how to get a divorce. (Between you and me, I think Carl might have had a new romance developing and wanted a clean slate.) He said he didn’t know where to begin.

I recorded my conversation with Carl and it was broadcast on 2SER’s law show ‘Radio Atticus’. You can listen below:

Satire – What Makes a Man Bare All?
Satire – What Makes a Man Bare All?

Anthony’s 2004 Adelaide Fringe debut takes us on a journey that bares all. With musical support from Gary and Rob (and constant interruptions by Michael Hicks), the show features such unusual explorations as:
• why spotted ties send the wrong message
• the rejection letter poem
• the army, cocaine, grenades and me
• why thinking about work can actually increase arousal
• losing your virginity; beware the dark blue ring
• hard up at the puppetry of the penis auditions
• the brighter side of breaking your penis
• a long weekend sleeping out with the homeless
If there is a place in hell for you [...]
