Danny McGinlay

Muck Up Day

Presented by Brisbane Powerhouse and Angela Thompson

Muck Up Day. The greatest Australian tradition of all. What did you do? Danny McGinlay got arrested.

It’s the conversation topic that ignites the competitive juices of every single graduate, now destined to become a relic of the past as more and more schools outlaw the practice. Danny McGinlay tells the story Victoria Police have kept suppressed for fifteen years.

After 12 years of education, the final rite of passage was upon the students. An epic final battle of eggs, shaving cream and flour. Then things escalated…

Arrests were made.

Just another day in the life of an inner city state school student.

A brand new hour of stand-up from one of Australia’s funniest.


Jam packed full of fun, thoroughly enjoyable.


Impressively sharp zingers amid his own laddish bits sent everyone home smiling.
