Comedian Rodney Keft aka Rodney Rude has made a star-studded career out of swear words, bawdy ballads and political correctness.
But there's one rule that Keft lives by off-stage.
"I don't swear in real life," Keft said.
"I'm saying this because it has never been something that I have done."
"Swearing in comedy is another tool to reach an end. It's a timing device."
"You need to put a swear word at the right place to make an impact in your performance."
Keft is back on the road with his newest show,Wrong Hole Tour, which he will perform at Blacktown RSL on Saturday, September 21.
Keft said audiences could expect a show that pushes all boundaries.
"They always get comedy that they can't get anywhere else," he said.
"It's the advent of political correctness."
"Political correctness has laid a platform for me to really lay the boot in."
Keft said his shows are based on topics that aren't often brought up in public discussion.
"I've always spoken about things of a sexual nature and I have always noticed a lot of comedy these days steers away from it a bit," he said.
At 70, this will be Keft's last tour ever.
"I've got a family now and I want to stay home," Keft said.
"I have always written serious stuff, short stories, poetry and songs but I have never put them out there in my public life and I really just want to be able to work on them."
Over the past 54 years, Keft has sold millions of CDs, videos and DVDs and has been nominated at six ARIA awards.
