NSP043 - Interview: Andrew Roberts
A companion for podcast episode "NSP042 – COVID-19 was just a story", I spoke to Andrew Roberts, a veteran Melbourne comedian of 15 years who found new purpose when the tyranny of Melbourne's COVID-19 lockdowns struck back in 2020.
Andrew was amongst the first to hit the streets in protest, and was harassed, assaulted and detained by police. He was ostracized by family, friends and much of the comedy community for his views, and banned on social media.
Despite this, Andrew continued to find humor in the situation, and believes the actions of the protesters were instrumental in winning the war against Dan Andrews and tyrannical regime.
Believe what you will about the extreme restrictions inflicted on Melbourne during the COVID-19 pandemic, Andrew's story is one of principled persistence and courage.
Let's hear him challenge the narrative.
