Comedian Josh Hawkins¬†is adept at finding the funny side of life, but he‚Äôs not laughing this week.
On Sunday, with just five weeks to go until their wedding day, he and fiancee Cat Vasilakis, drove to the wedding venue they had booked at Tamarama Surf Lifesaving Club in Sydney‚Äôs posh eastern suburbs. There, they discovered the tasteful lemon building with blue trim they had booked had been given a paint job‚Ä¶ and it now featured a gigantic orange lobster.
Former youth pastor Hawkins is well-known and loved across the country for a being able to elicit a giggle from almost anyone. His distinct brand of clean (and ridiculous) humour has made him a firm fan-favourite with Aussie audiences ‚Äď whether he‚Äôs recapping TV programme The Bachelor, ‚Äėauditioning‚Äė for Australia‚Äôs Got Talent, or throwing things perfectly into other things.
Yet the jokester is struggling to find the humour in Tamarama‚Äôs gaudy facelift, with he and Vasilakis taking to Instagram to ask if anyone had a farm/hall/garden/house/anything big enough for a wedding (and wasn‚Äôt painted orange).
In the meantime, their friend ‚Äú@nomescody‚ÄĚ has proved ready to fill in the lack of humour, messaging a few on-theme jokes of their own to the frustrated couple, including: ‚ÄúI‚Äôd be heaps crabby with that!‚ÄĚ, ‚ÄúI‚Äôm just ‚Äėshell shocked‚Äô for you both‚ÄĚ and ‚ÄúIt‚Äôs just so shellfish of them!‚ÄĚ.
