Aside from being the captain of the Triple M Cricket commentary team, Kerry O’Keeffe is also an in demand after dinner speaker.
In fact, he’s been known to refer to himself as Kerry Seinfeld.
Speaking on Triple M Cricket during the third session of today’s play at the WACA Ashes Test, Skull spoke about his worst ever gig.
Listen Skull talk about his worst gig here:
“MCG, 2004, it was on the MCG, out in the middle,” Skull said.
“It was 41 degrees and there was no umbrellas or anything.
“The butter melted — it was like a yellow carrot soup!
“You know how the waiters normally give you a drink on arrival? Sunscreen!
“Everybody’s applying sunscreen in suits!
“I was introduced at about 2:30, it must have been 44 degrees. As I got up, a woman on table one collapsed.
“People were running everywhere. I was giving my gold and everybody was around this woman, and then I heard ‘stand clear!’
The MC of the event advised Skull to keep going while the defibrillators were applied.
“I said I’m going with the froggy (his famous frog joke), [meanwhile] family are running in from left and right… I said ‘and the frog said’ and they carted her off!
“Nobody was listening or watching, so I sat down.
“Somebody said ‘that didn’t go so well!’.”
The woman was fine, thankfully.
“She lived, which is really good,” he said.
“Unlike your jokes,” Mark Howard replied.
“No, I died… I was distracted as much as the 200 people!”
