This week's guest was very entertaining and a delight to have in the studio: Charlie Hill-Smith - filmmaker, thespian, failed comedian, cartoonist and the list goes on. Charlie hails from Tanunda, South Australia, and his life changed forever when he went on exchange to Indonesia as a school-leaver, forging enduring links and opening his eyes to the people and politics of the region, eventually heading to West Papua and a hiking trip led by Dani guides where he got to meet the oldest farmers in the world. Charlie has led a colourful life, from starting Adelaide's longest-running comedy club, The Rhino Room, to spoofing as a food critic. He is currently launching Crime Scene Australia, a revisionist, gonzo comic book, in collaboration with 3CRs own Robert Thorpe. You will enjoy hearing some of Charlie's story and we thank him very much for being our guest this week.Crime Scene Australia - Edition One launches at Wolfhound Cafe, 386 Brunswick St, Fitzroy, 6pm, Thursday December 1st 2022Charlies Youtube channel is called The House of Red Monkey
