Mel Buttle

Welcome Aboard

Presented by TOKEN EVENTS

As my personal hero and décolletage mentor Deborah Hutton used to say, Hi I’m Mel Buttle and it’s my pleasure to welcome you aboard.

If there’s anything I can do to make you more comfortable today keep it to yourself, I’ve got enough on my plate: a break-up, a huge year of international touring and working out how to co-parent a rescue dog with my ex-missus.

As a platinum frequent flyer, I can assure you there’s nothing more glamourous than air travel. Except being at home with your loving partner on the couch with nice Barossa Shiraz and a few episodes of The Barefoot Contessa. In the cabin today we’ve got anxiety and too many Red Rooster rolls for lunch. Up the back is a panic about not having any kids yet.

Even if you laugh often please note that every show is different. Sit back and relax.

Reviews

The right mix of sarcastic self-deprecation and genuine vulnerability.
