Good News Week team leader for the right hand side of the stage (or left hand to her view) who was not an original member of the Good News Week team.

This comedian has also co-hosted many years of the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras parade. She has been a part of the special Good News Week shows such as Good News Weekend (which ran for ten episodes on the ABC), GNW Night Lite (which ran for one year on channel ten), the Good News Week Sandman and Flacco special (filmed at the 1999 Melbourne International Comedy Festival) and the debates that Good News Week filmed at the Melbourne comedy festival in 1999.

Good News Week lasted two years on channel ten and continued to employ Julie as a team captain. And for the first time in five years, Paul actually awarded Julie extra points for her team. Since GNW was axed on channel ten, the ABC gave her another job and now hosts her own TV show "McCrossin" which can be viewed on the ABC, Tuesday nights at 10pm.

Julie can also be seen on the Good News Week video "Unseen and Obscene" or in the Good News Week books. I also think there is a Mardi Gras parade on video which she hosted that you could try to find somewhere. Not sure what year it is from though.

If you're really interested in Julie's work, you could also buy her book "Julie McCrossin talks about Sex, Love and Relationships".
