Wax wants Pyne’s baby in space

Christopher Pyne and Ruby Wax joke on ABC's QANDA program about what life in space could look like.

COMEDIAN Ruby Wax has joked that she wants to have Education Minister Christopher Pyne's baby on ABC TV's Q&A.

When the discussion turned to a planet like Earth being discovered and needing to be populated, Wax joked: "We're going to have a child together".

When asked what they would name their offspring, Pyne referred to Wax.

"You are the comedian, you have to come up with the name," he said.

Her suggestion? "Mr Chatterbox".

Meantime, the Q&A panel weighed into the issue of mental illness, the Germanwings plane crash and Jeremy Clarkson's sacking from Top Gear.

Pyne and Wax were joined by Opposition's Penny Wong, musician Michael Franti and Nobel prize-winning astrophysicist Brain Schmidt.

Discussing the French Alps plane disaster, Pyne said: "Mental illness is not a laughing matter. We shouldn't be laughing about it".

"Mental illness is not rational. It is hard to describe how people react in these kind of situations," Pyne said.

"Obviously we have to get help to them as early as possible so they don't do something terrible like what's happened recently in France and every suicide bomber, of course, is a tragedy."

While Schmidt added: "(The Germanwings crash) was just so random. It's hard to understand."

Meanwhile, the discussion also turned to drug addiction and ice, with rock star Franti saying, "There's never a point where you've lost the battle with an addict".

The panel also weighed into the tertiary education fee debate, with Wong taking a swipe at Pyne and the Abbott Government's university system, saying it "doesn't have accessibility and equity at its core".

Schmidt chimed in: "We need to change (uni fees). But we need a framework we can agree on."

When the chatter turned to mental illness, Wax, who has spoken publicly about her battle with depression, said there was still a stigma around it.

"Any other disease you can see but 2015 everyone thinks (depressions) an act of imagination".

On the topic of bullying, Wax said a lot of it came down to education. "Get teachers educated to deal with (bullying)," she said.

When Jeremy Clarkson's sacking from British TV show Top Gear was raised in a question from the audience, Wax — who has had a long career in TV and stand-up comedy — described fame and celebrity as an "illness".

"It comes down to there is an illness called fame," Wax said on Q&A.

"I knew Jeremy Clarkson when he was just a nice guy, if you infantilise people ... you are padded from reality.

"I'm not backing him up but that's in the brew. Don't go into television, don't try out for X Factor, that will happen to you."
