Everything is A-O-K…


Andrew O’Keefe used to be a lawyer, and is the son of a former Supreme Court Judge called Barry, and yes, his uncle was that Johnny O’Keefe.


O’Keefe is the Seven Network’s poster-boy these days, he’s been groomed to be their star host, ala Rove “i’m way too familiar with your mum” McManus and Eddie “absolutely no conflict of interest” Mcguire.


andrew: i’m going to get so hammered at Boogs’ set tonight…

eddie: i’m a massive bogan…

rove: oh my god… why is he touching me…

He started out on the sketch comedy show Big Bite, in 2003, he began hosting the game show Deal or No Deal. As well as co-hosting Weekend Sunrise, In 2007 O’Keefe also became the host of the The Rich List… what ties all these programs together, aside from O’Keefe, is they’re all very boring.

In 2004, O’Keefe was nominated for a Logie Award for “Most Popular New Male Talent” and again for “Most Popular Presenter” in ’05 and ’06.

Revolver Upstairs is one of the few decent spots on the infamous south-side of the river.

This is what happens when the son of a Supreme Court Judge gets smashed outside Revolver.

He’s laying on the sidewalk, talking kiwi-fruit and the merits of farming it… he falls on a chick… smokes weed (allegedly)… he whistles some locals up… he goes home with someone random.

The very next day he was back at work.

NOTR salutes Andrew O’Keefe, because we’ve all been there.

And really, that’s what this is all about, because O’Keefe didn’t really do anything wrong. Yes he was drunk, but he was neither abusive or violent, he didn’t hurt anybody and in fact, he seemed like reasonably good company in his more lucid moments. It didn’t help that Seven attempted to pay a bouncer $25,000 “hush” money, because in this day and age, all that means is that a different Network will pay more for the exclusive.

The whole world is up in arms every time a potential “role model” misbehaves (no Ben Cousins), and the transparently smug, “expose” style intro the Nine Network guy gives the piece is indicative of the way that this attitude of expectation is being manipulated by “current affairs” programs and the moral majority.

Celebrities are people just like us, except way more talented and famous, why not let the stars drink and be merry… ’tis the season after all.

On the other hand there’s this little nugget…
