Frogs on Toast on the menu at RSL

FROGS on Toast, one of the funniest shows in Australia, will serve up the humour at the Ballina RSL Club on Saturday, June 16.

The show recently won the Australian Entertainment MO Award for Best Show Band.

This follows the MO Award win for Best Showband.

People often ask how the name Frogs on Toast came about and the answer is that "Frogs" refers to the French theme which features throughout the show, and the "on Toast" is part of a northern English expression meaning "without effort".

The fact that frogs legs are a favourite of many French people complements the name overall.

"It's very funny when a club advertises its restaurants on the same banner as Frogs on Toast," show creator Trish Allen said.

"I'm sure there are some interesting questions about the menu."

The show consists of musicians Jeff Vandenberg, Mick Ellis and Geoff Hale and a talented front-line.

Bonnie Kellett is studying dance, acting ,singing and performance and brings to the show a professional and extremely funny character called M'moiselle, a blonde and beautiful young woman with a tendency to get confused.

Jarrod McAuley has a theatre background and studied acting as part of his Arts degree.

Frogs on Toast has regularly toured the east coast over the past 12 years. Tickets for the show and dinner are $45.90.
