Nitschke to make comedy debut

The controversial suspended doctor will perform with British comedian Mel Moon, who was seriously ill when they met at an Exit International workshop.

Dr Nitschke told AAP that Moon approached him about doing a show together after reading the last line of his recent biography, which ruminated that “there are worse things than dying laughing”.

After taking time off from her work, Moon planned to return to the stage in 2015 including her scheduled one-month booking at the Edinburgh festival in August.
