Disney buys our show!

WAC, world animal championships.

Great news on the eve of Comicon 2014! WAC, the World Animal Championships, the show that I voiced all these crazy creatures on has been bought by the Walt Disney company UK.

This is a massive win for our show created and written by legendary TV genius Alex Mavroidakis. Alex is also one of the brains behind another show I work on called Big Brother.

WAC is Produced by Blacklab Entertainment Brisbane has been a smash hit on ABC kids Australia.

The show puts animals against each other to find the loudest, smelliest, strongest, funniest, weirdest animals in the world.

I think I ended up doing about 50 different voices for the show that is now going to be seen on UK Disney.

I have to do a special shout out to superstar producer Vanessa Oxlad who was one of the shows producers that pushed for me to do all the voices with Angela Walsh another Brisbane voice artist/movie producer.

Of course well done has to go to Tim McGahan, Nick Hopkin and the team at Black Lab, Alex Mavroidikis for creating such an awesome show and the legend animators, producers and editors at Cutting Edge Brisbane.

Looking forward to another 52 episodes!!

See you at COMIC CON San Diego diego tomorrow.

Grant Goldman 50 years in Radio

grant goldman voiceover

My Dad and Sydney Breakfast Radio Legend Grant Goldman.

Yes, an Australian radio super god is celebrating 50 years in radio this year. This guy hosted the first episode of ABC TVs Countdown, which was the first live colour television show in Australian TV history.

He has won international and local radio awards and has one of the longest running nationally syndicated breakfast shows.

Not to mention being the voice of Sky Channel, the official voice of the Sydney 2000 Olympics and the Manly Sea Eagles ground announcer for over thirty years. GO MANLY!!

Here we are when Manly beat the Storm 40 nil in the 2008 grand final.

Dad taught me everything there is to know about radio and television, how to use a microphone, how to promote myself, how to sell promotional use only CD’s on E Bay.

I can honestly say I have never met anyone in the industry who always had such a positive attitude at all times.

One of the more fun jobs Ive had over the years was working in the studio next to him hosting the Gorilla radio breakfast show while dad was hosting his show in the studio next door.

He would pop in on my show and vice versa. All sorts of crazy shit would happen. Dad would just barge in while in the middle of a talk break, “whats going on here?” If digital radio took off in Australia I

would have stayed.

Yep he’s my dear old dad Grant Goldman, on radio every morning on 2SM from 5 till 9am and something you may not know. He also recorded about a million voiceovers for the Sydney train stations.

Someone then got hold of these announcements and messed with them a little.

Dad swears he didn’t do it. Have a listen.

Listen to Dad weekday mornings from 5 till 9am on 2SM in Sydney and nationally on the Super radio network.

Brother from another mother


Australia’s most watched house is empty so Big Bro needs you to live in it for a while and maybe win some cash.

If you get in you could well become a household name and get to do fun things like Dreamworld appearances.
Last year I had to fill in for a celebrity housemate who couldn’t do the full day of appearances in the spare diary room chair just outside the Big Brother amphitheatre.
I was like Santa Claus but without the presents. The letdown on kids faces is burnt into my mind.
“Mum, what happened to Benjaman, I want the funny housemate, who’s this guy”, they would say.
The mums knew, they remembered my shows, “Friday Night Live” and “Big Brother Up Late” god bless them.

If you want to be on on the 2014 edition heres my tips for auditions :
Be yourself
Dont bite your tongue
Stand out
If anyone is a big mouth stand up to them
Talk to other people you don’t know auditioning
Wash yourself properly before going to auditions
Eat and take some food and drink to auditions
Bring a pillow
Bring a tea towel
Sing loudly while waiting
Speak in a made up language the whole time

Actually I really have no Idea if any of those tips will help. One good idea is to take chocolate bars and give them to the executive producers as a bribe. Especially the chubby pommy one, he loves chocolate.
BUT SERIOUSLY
This is by far the biggest and most successful television show in the world. 14 years since we started and still pumping in over 40 countries.
Every year a different show, with different people, love affairs, insults, shocks, tears, fights, laughs, different tasks and challenges. PLUS the stunning Sonia Kruger hosting up a storm. Oh and of course yours truly will be there voice-overing and doing my thing at the live shows. Come and say hello!!
Me in my voiceover booth at Big Brother. It smells a little bit, don’t go in there.

This year, if you think know someone who would be awesome on the show, NOMINATE THEM! Just send their photo, name, number and why you think they should be on the show to nominate@bigbrother.com.au
Mike Goldman on stage Big Brother 2012
They will probably hate you at first but deep down they’ll be flattered and it will be the best thing that they ever did. They’ll love you for it.

ED’s UNDERPANTS

jade ed

Everyone now knows that the way Jade got her man Ed back was by being a mother to him and folding his underpants. I was moved by this amazing yet a little desperate display of affection and attention that I decided to write a song about it.
Here it is for your free downloading pleasure.

Hers a few more songs I’ve recorded for your listening pleasure…..

Its MY CAR

SCARE ME

Alien Holiday

These three songs I recorded with my band called POLISH.
More to come!

Get Ready for a BB Showdown

Big ShowdownWe’re back baby!

Theres a Big Brother Saturday night show that will be on for the first four weeks of the series called “Showdown”.
This will impact the housemates time in the house like never before. It’s hosted by the adorable Shelly Craft with crafty housemate Michael and arts and craft expert Mike Goldman. Yes, thats me, sorry to go off topic but I love arts and craft.

So the Brotherhood have succeeded, the games are back.

I wonder if this means I’ll get back my Ed Hard sponsorship deal from 2003.

Maybe not, but either way I’m super excited about being a part of the new gameshow on Big Brother that is SHOWDOWN.

Drink Driving Shock

This is full on!! If you’re squeamish or have just eaten I would definitely look away. Its an anti drink driving campaign by Leo Burnett London. Its part of a Pub toilet Shocker campaign for the Department for Transport’s THINK! campaign. The idea is that you’ll be in the dunny and this face goes smashing into the mirror from the other side you’ll think it was from a car accident and decide to never drink drive. Either that or make you accidentally crap your pants before you get to the bowl and or scare you from ever going to a public toilet again.

Battle Cam

Yes you probably think I’m about to tell you about the most amazing show on the planet that is Big Brother and that the auditions are on right now.

Im so excited about the enormity of the next series I’m PREXHAUSTED (preemptively exhausted)

SO onto BATTLE CAM!!
Battle Cam
Battle Cam is free to air TV KILM Channel 64 Los Angeles started by an eccentric Greek Billionaire by the name of Alki David

Alki David

Alki David

.
He looks like a whole lot of fun this guy.

Basically you buy a $10 camera from battlecam.com for the top of your TV and you battle it out for your 5 minuites of fame in a split screen challenge against other people. The public vote live from their lounge room and if the love you you stay, if they “poop” you, that means you’re kicked off. The longer you stay on camera the more money you earn. Yes, they pay you actual cash! I think its like $10 every time your’re on or something.
In a publicity stunt recently Alki David offered US one million dollars for anyone who would do a nudie run in front of president Obama with Battle Cam written on their chest. One guy did it but the President didn’t see it, so no cash for the nutbag. You think thats mental, a terminally ill man with brain cancer will died in front of millions of people when the TV station was just online.
Nikolai Ivanisovich, 62, was given the lethal injection by a doctor at a clinic in Switzerland. Its only a matter of time till someone does something stupid on this channel like chops off a finger or worse, kills someone or themselves. Oh, hang on, that already happened.

No its not a gay chat channel.

No its not a gay chat channel.


So I watched Battle Cam for about three hours last night and It’s a lot like my show I host called Big Brother up late. NOTHING HAPPENS FOR AGES!!! But when it does it’s really exciting. When I host or voice Big Brother Up Late we look for the one on one conversations a lot of the time because it’s a lot less convoluted and people are more likely to be more open. So in that aspect Battle Cam works really well with two people on two different cams at all times.
I watched people talk about their love life, a guy with tattoos all over his face talk about why he did it, watched a guy put pins through his hand, an ex playboy bunny interview an old guy about his life, its very different to any sort of television I’ve ever seen. I can honestly say that it has a future. Only real problem is it can get quite boring. So the concept needs to evolve. I think they need hosts there 24/7 that are up to speed with all conversations going on so they can pop on screen occasionally. Or have a break from Battle Cam and put on my dating show using their battle cam’s for contestants maybe. Check it out if you haven’t seen it!

You did what with an egg beater?

Some Bali That I Used to know

Come to Bali, throw a party, surf, eat amazing food and then ruin your holiday by going on a detox. Im a little grumpy cause its my first day detoxing with Shuntaya where all I can eat for four days is a variety of herbal pills, runny clay drink, coconut juice and vegetable broth every hour or so. Not even the freakin’ vegetables, just the broth! Never done anything like this properly before. There was that once I started the 7 day detox in a box kit and canned it on the first day because it turned my ass into a tap. That didnt bother me too much, but the fact I was hosting a live national TV show at the time made it difficult.
So my brother Jay and my best buddy Sam and I all decided when hungover after my 40th birthday party that we needed to do a detox. Sam sent me a link for Shuntaya, I booked it. A naturapath by the name of Monica dropped by our villa for a 1 hour consultation with each of us talking to us about what we eat, drink and do to our bodies on a daily basis. Apparently shes e mailing what we need to do on top of the Shuntaya 4 day detox drill. Did I mention I hate getting old. Meh! I thought 1 or two litres of water a day was enough, just found out I am meant to have four litres four being 86 kilos. Whoops, no wonder my kidneys are always sore. Actually that could be tequila, but its good tequila, not that Jose Quervo crap, usually Patron or Mezcal. I digress. So when Monica the naturapath showed up Sam and Jay had locked themselves in their villas threatening an escape to DEUS temple up the road for free taco and tattoo Tuesday. Eventually they were up for the detox or what Monica called a body reset. If only I had a button I could push, only im not that way inclined. over 50 pills later and 11 sloppy metamucil type shakes we get a colonic irrigation tomorrow. Stay tuned.
Day 2
Just woke up to the sound of illegal fireworks being set off outside my villa. Seriously, Its 6am, who lets of fireworks in the day let alone at 6am. Fuck im hungry and grumpy. Must put on a happy face or I’ll scare evryone away. Shake time, oh jeesus, this tastes like ass mixed with off milk. Today is the ass hose out day, colonic irrigation. FAK! Im going back to bed. Alarm goes off at 7, first handfull of pils and thick tasteless detox drink. EW! Do this for a few hours then its time for the first Colon Cleanse. Wow, this is mental. You can actually watch whats coming out, I call it “Poo Tube”. It really is shit television. My brother burst into the clinic with his video camera when I was getting it done. Want to see? If I get any comments asking for the video I’ll upload my download video. Went to have a massage this afternoon and the worst headache I have ever had in my life hit me like a falling Balinese coconut. I had to take a panadol. My friend sam called me a cheat cause its not part of the detox.
Day Three
Woke up feeling pretty good, skipped the crap shake and ran to DEUS Temple up the road from where Im staying in Changuu, its bloody hot, about 31 degrees. Another colonic at 11am which Im kind of dreading. Did the colonic and it was a little more full on. Apparently didnt drink enough water and the clay drink thing was harder in my guts than usual. Fabulous. Betty the clinic ass technician went from massaging my gut to poking my bowel like a remote control that wouldn’t work. I felt violated a little. Its late niw in my room, tomorrow is the last morning if this rectum ritual and then at 11am I am free from Detox hell. Im thinking vietnamese food. I am going to eat it quicker than a……..(insert something really quick here). I cant think.
