What a fun night Wednesday night was! The Melbourne International Comedy Gala officially kicked-off. Held at the Palais Theatre in St Kilda, it was a great start to what will be a fantastic festival. There was a great line up of Australian and international comics – one of my favourites being Tom Gleeson. He can make me laugh so hard I cry!
While waiting for the show to start, I was a having a look around at this old theatre, and was admiring its gorgeous architecture. It was built in 1927 which you can tell from its grandness that it is definitely suited to that era. It always amazes me when I look at things that were created a long time ago; they are full of history and stories, and can really stand the test of time. They just don’t seem to date. And that is one of the most important elements of good design – that it is timeless and classic.
