SO.... WHAT IS THE JOHN ROWE SHOW?
Kitschy kool fabulousness!
Don't be fooled by the beige sofa... there's nothing beige about spending a night in John Rowe's lounge room! Not-so-carefully treading that fine line between kitsch and kool, John pulls out all the stops to keep his guests entertained. with a mix of groovy live music, sing-alongs, daggy dancing, hilarious chat-chat, show & tell, silly fun & games… and donuts! It's splendidly songful, sensationally silly and stupendously surprising. How many s's can one show have? Yasssss!
Oh, and did we mention donuts(ssss)? Obsession much?
... light the corners of John's mind. (Thanks Babs*)
Remember that golden age when DVD rentals were still a thing, Facebook was merely a glint in Mark Zuckerberg's eye and John was still dying his hair?
Well, join John as he looks back (caressing a keyboard helps apparently) at the original John Rowe Show: musical moments, videos, pics, news articles, celebrity guests.... and of course donuts (better check the use by dates on those).
* Please note the John Rowe Show does not actually feature this or any other Barbra Streisand songs - I mean it's camp.... but not that camp.
Let's get social!
Not in a weird religious cult kinda way, more in a "desperately seeking approval" kinda way.
