Andy Griffiths and his Killer Koala come to town

Andy Griffiths and his Killer Koala

Andy Griffiths and his Killer Koala

The after lunch blues were as far away as Timbuktu on Monday afternoon if you were lucky enough to be at Riccarton High School.  It was an assembly that made you laugh, gave inside tips on how to be the most annoying brother, sister, class-mate or school kid in the world and gave clues on how to be a top children’s author.

Yup, Andy Griffiths was in town.

Reading excerpts from The Bad Book  and his new book (yet to be released) What Body Part is That set the hall in an uproar.  Live demos using Bananas in Pyjamas soft toys and your friendly Koala showed the audience how to make real-life events turn into gut wrenchingly funny and jaw busting laugh-out-loud stories.  The crowd loved it and was rapt for a whole hour with his wit, gross humour and a killer Koala.

Long live boys, toilets, pranks, bottoms and Killer Koalas!
