Distinguished news reporter and popular media personality Kay McGrath joined Seven News Brisbane in 1989. She has reported for and co-hosted documentaries on local social issues, including the acclaimed special, “Behind Closed Doors: Child Abuse in Queensland”. Kay’s journey in child protection started in 1984, when she was approached by two police officers who had investigated the abuse of a four-year-old girl, by a family friend. The parents did not know how they would navigate the legal system. Together with those police she set up an organisation called PACT – Protect All Children Today – PACT is still running very successfully and it is regarded for its child witness support program. As patron and founder of PACT Kay was awarded a medal in the Order of Australia in 2017. Kay is an ambassador for The Abused Child Trust and patron for the Daniel Morcombe Foundation. For a number of years Kay has chaired the organising committee for Child Protection Week activities in Queensland. She has interviewed Prime Ministers, Governors-General, Premiers, politicians and personalities. Kay is a long time committed child protection campaigner. Kay is Patron of the Daniel Morcombe Foundation, an Ambassador for Act for Kids and Vice Patron of the Queensland Breast and Prostate Cancer Association. Kay is committed to the fight against breast cancer, and vice patron of the Breast Cancer Association of Queensland.
Mike van Acker has spent most of his adult life trying to stay away from stand up comedy. It was easy when he left high school – there was no comedy in Brisbane. He became a singing telegram performer instead. Keen wasn’t he?
In January 1992 Mike was minding his own business contract cleaning when his acting agent called, reminded him who she was, and told him the ‘Sit Down Comedy Club’ was about to open in Brisbane. It was a defining moment for him. As he stood in his trusty storeroom surrounded by mops and Chux supa-wipes (the extra absorbent type) he received ‘the comedy calling’ – a strange, dizzy feeling that seemed to bring stomach cramps as well. Two weeks later as he failed miserably on his stand up debut he realised it was not the comedy but the ammonia calling. It really wasn’t a well-ventilated storeroom.
A few years later becoming a bit good at comedy Mike sold his contract cleaning company and began making a full time living as a performer. To facilitate this, there may have been a time when he regularly dressed up as (among other things) a clown, a spy, a waiter, and at one memorable gig the Scarecrow from the Wizard of Oz. What can I say? He was young. He needed the money.
Mike continued to avoid doing stand up where possible – he even took a year off to sing and dance in a theatre restaurant on the Gold Coast, but always found his way back to stand up. Stints as the audience warm-up comedian for Channel 7’s Family Feud did little to dampen his enthusiasm, and after his fourth successful tour of New Zealand’s comedy clubs (both of them) he decided to give the street theatre and magic gigs a big miss, and gracefully accept that he and stand up comedy are going to be together a long time.
Mike’s list of foreign countries worked in reads like a list of foreign countries worked in, and includes England, USA, Indonesia, Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia, and New Zealand. Some people are impressed by stuff like that.
Mike van Acker is now the co-host on 97.3FM’s Breakfast show in Brisbane.
