25th Annual Red Ball


It was an unreal night in Melbourne town, at the 25th Annual Red Ball for the Fight Cancer Foundation.

For my opening performance, I was lowered from the ceiling by the same guys who do all Hugh Jackman’s aerial stuff, on his same rig.  First time doing anything like that, plus it was a fair way up – so no biggie :p.  Yep, kinda scary, but man … what a rush and definitely one I can tick off!



Casually airborne.  Waiting to descend for my performance.

Pleasure meeting the lovely Deborra-Lee Furness.  Her and Hugh Jackman are patrons for Fight Cancer Foundation.  He dropped in via video from the set of ‘Wolverine 3’.

Bowel Cancer Ball


I was recently invited to perform at the Better Together Foundation’s Bowel Cancer Ball at Brisbane City Hall.

What an honour it was performing in support of a cause so close to my heart: fighting cancer.  Well over $20K was raised on the night.

Love what I do.


Soundcheck at Brisbane City Hall.



With the lovely Erin Molan, who spoke beautifully.

Braving the Tide with Longines

Barry-Conrad-TimeTideWatches-Longines 1

Such a pleasure and privilege working with Time+Tide Watches for their new Longines video feature.

They’ve only had Michael Clarke and Monika Radulovic host their videos before me, so I’m feeling pretty fortunate to be in that kind of company.

As an actor, filming this was so creatively satisfying too.  Loved it.  Check it out below and click here to see more.
