Nigel Honeybone presented the Australian premiere of " Danny Johnson Saves The World", at the The Sydney International Sci-Fi Film Festival in October 2015.
Nigel's official biography is that "he made his stage debut as Hamlet's dead father, not to be confused with poor Yorick's skull. Honeybone was catapulted into the world of modern horror when renowned director Alfred Hitchcock convinced Nigel to don women's clothes for his part in the movie Psycho. After a long day on the set, Nigel likes to enjoy his favourite gin cocktail... a Corpse Reviver, of course."

In 2017, the producers were able to secure Nigel's future, now appearing on Foxtel Aurora Channel 173.
