Damien Power – Stand Up

November 21, 2009

This post is only very loosely based on anything to do with roads, but that’s okay, cause it’s my blog and I’ll do what I want.

Last night I went to see some Standup comedy, at the Sit Down Comedy Club, I won some free tickets, yeah. One of the comedians on stage was Damien Power, and he was really good. Turns out he is the brother of IndyCar driver Will Power.

He is doing a few shows around the place. Check out his MySpace page for dates. Check out this link and this link for a sample of his stand up.


Indycar driver and Toowoomba boy Will Power has been hospitalised after an accident during a practice session for the Indy Grand Prix of Sonoma at Infineon Raceway. Indycar.com is reporting that Will Power has suffered compression fractures of his L2 and L4 vertebrae.

Power collided with a spun out car that was being driven by Nelson Philippe. Philippe’s car spun just over the crest of a hill, and from footage, it appears that Power didn’t have enough sight distance to avoid colliding with Philippe’s car.

Hopefully Power can make a speedy recovery.
