<- – This is a letter to the editor that I received from Dirty Pierre, a long term world traveling comedian, that he wrote to provide me with a better idea of who he is and what I am dealing with! – ->
I am a 60 yr old stand up comedian travelling the world for the last 29 years performing in Europe and Australia. My largest show is an annual one where the attendance is over 45,000.
I used to have a television showin Spain, would you believe running a wet tshirt contest, the Spanish love their tits!
The money I make with merchandise which I design myself as I am also an artist, is used to build hospitals, schools and orphanages in Asia.
I live, when back in Australia, in a ’76 VW kombivan camper, so yes I am a bit of an excentric to say the least.
I love travelling by myself and getting totally lost in strange villages and relying on my wits to get me safely home.
Its amazing how far a smile will get you.
I might add I have had some close calls, I have been bombed twice by Muslim separatists and survived.
The photo of me with the tank was the day of the military coup in Bangkok. Note I was wearing my “Terrorists Fuck ’em!” tanktop at the time.
I love where your heads at and have enjoyed reading your travelogues.
My love to you and Chaya.
Artist, Comedian and Intrepid World Traveller

Hello Dirty Pierre,
F’cking A, man, it seems as if you live one hell of a life. Yes, playing the “get lost game” on a global scale is the best occupation I think a person can have!
Man, it seems as if you have real good story that you are riding on top of. Would you mind if I did some interviews with you and wrote a little piece about your travels, comedy shows, and being bombed?
That would be really awesome. I don’t know the last time I had a friend that did a Spanish wet t-shirt television program hah!
Anyway, how can I go about getting one of those tank tops?
Thanks for letting me in on your story.
