David Sharaz is known for his love of cats and reading the news on the MIX106.3 Kristen & Wilko Show.

In a funny, or not so funny turn of events, he tried his hand at stand-up comedy on the Breakfast Show this morning!

Kristen & Wilko made Cheeky Sharaz perform a set on-air, after finding out he was asked to judge the Raw Comedy ACT final on Thursday. 

According to the sound of crickets and David Graham’s assessment, the routine needs a bit lot more work.

Upon reflection, David reckons his best bet is to stick to journalism for now.

“For a while I’ve wanted to attempt stand-up but I should probably stick to judging the final because it means I don’t need to possess any talent myself,” he said.

“Not only was I underprepared, admittedly, I wasn’t very good and am reconsidering my future in comedy.”

Before giving up on his dream for good, David decided to get the opinion of the lovely woman he recently married, Alex.

“My own wife has tried to talk me out of it, saying I’m not only unfunny but Canberrans wouldn’t pay to watch that,” he said.

Hm. Well, that’s that then!

What do you think? Should David try comedy on the big stage, or stick to news reading? Have your say at our Facebook page!
