He is the frontman for iconic Aussie pub rockers The Choirboys.
And it seems that Mark Gable could have a decent shot at a stand-up career taking a few comedic pot shots during a recent interview.
The Run To Paradise hitmaker dropped by the Newcastle Live office recently to promote the Choirboys’ June 22 show at Shoal Bay Country Club and the larrikin frontman seemed more interested in throwing shade on one of Newcastle’s favourite sons, Dave Gleeson of the Screaming Jets.
Declaring out of the blue that he would rather talk about his bottom than politics, Mark jumped up from his chair to give his posterior a salacious rubbing before launching into a bizarre dance.
“Go and suck on this, Dave Gleeson,” Mark declared as he flailed his arms wildly.
The trolling didn’t stop there, either with Mark also taking aim at Channel Nine entertainment guru Richard Wilkins.
In reminiscing about his experiences in Newcastle, Mark admitted: “There used to be a place called the Castle Tavern – now that’s the first time I ever saw Richard Wilkins in a band.
“Now he didn’t call himself Richard Wilkins – it was Richard Wild and Reckless. he was terrible. Good looking but terrible. He’d get up and go ‘I’m Wild and they’re Reckless’. I keep reminding him about that, too.”
As for the Choirboys though, they are heading back to our neck of the woods for a special show at Shoal Bay Country Club this weekend that will see them run through their litany of hits as well as six numbers by the great Creedence Clearwater Revival.
If Mark’s comedy stylings are anything to go by, this show is going to be one for the ages.
Catch The Choirboys when they play Shoal Bay Country Club on Saturday 22 June. Get your tickets here.
