The Stand-Up by Rory Ewins

The Stand-Up

When would-be comedian Alan meets university student Sean, and Sean meets Alan’s girlfriend Kath, it’s a recipe for stand-up comedy, unrequited love and hero-worshipping heartache, with a side-order of aeroplanes, sulfuric acid, Corroboree Frogs and big Dogs.

My first novel, written in the mid-1990s, has featured on this site since its debut in 1999. Read the original blurbs, credits, or a history of the project, or dive into its ten chapters.
