Johnny Goodman. Mr Sparkle. The Sandman.
His signature monotone voice has been etched in our minds, delivering deadpan stories about sharehouse life. But on the other side of his crooked smile, a musician performing high energy cabaret music.
These are different personas of comedian Steve Abbott, who has been making you laugh on stage, screen, TV and radio for around 40 years. Some signature works in his CV are The Castanet Club, Good News Week, ABC’s Birdbrain Podcast, In Siberia Tonight, Triple J, and popping up in the 1988 film Young Einstein.
But there’s more than just being The Sandman. I spoke to Steve to find out more about his career.
