Paxton Wines, March 2018

Grapes Of Mirth, Episode 2, and again McLaren Vale played host, this time it was Paxton Wines turn.

The weather was a gift, as was the helicopter no one asked for - random! But seriously, a big thanks to the guys at Helivista for offering some lucky punters the opportunity to look at the Vale from above prior to the comedy starting.

Old people were heard to say: “It’s like a scene from M*A*S*H’

Young people were heard to say: “What’s M*A*S*H?”

Old people: "It’s like Entourage but set during the Korean War”

Young people: “Cool”

Either way, it was bloody awesome and in true Grapes Of Mirth (GOM) form…totally unnecessary!

Two of our comedians Dave Thornton and Anne Edmonds enjoyed a joy flight, although Thorno may have had a little “Pants-ident” on approach to the makeshift helipad.

Thorno, Eddo, Mezzo, Chopper, Tom Gleeson, Lawrence Mooney and Kitty Flanagan rounded out a brilliant day of laughs. Lawrence was so excited about the gig he stayed up ALL NIGHT in anticipation! Lucky the festival Club was there to ease his insomnia!

A brilliant day had by all.
