Interview: Eric Rush

I remember seeing him host the Rugby Roast of Murray Mexted and he was hell funny on that, though I'd have to give the best roast award to radio personality Leah Panapa....I was pleasantly surprised at how good they were at roasting Murray and also at how good his response to them was....I have seen all the current comedy central roasts from the US and the one of Mike King here in NZ and Murray's I'd have to say was pretty good...so if Eric is going to be hosting the festival I am sure there is bound to be a few good laughs......

Ill be honest, the fact that he's a qualified lawyer took me by surprise. But seeing Rushy again makes me sad, reminiscing about Lion Red Sportscafe and such.. :(
