“One of the most exhilarating and insane nights of comedy I’ve experienced.”★★★★★ The Sydney Morning Herald, 2016.
Thanks for surfing the web to find this online e-guide intranet description of my show.
It means a lot to me that you’re reading this and I appreciate it. There are 6,000 other shows and the fact you’ve landed on this one means our fates are intertwined. The odds of that happening, universally speaking, are absurdly slim, so I’m humbled. Our mutual ancestors had to fend off wild animals, dictatorial regimes, pestilence, disease, famine and extreme weather events for us to be here.
The show is basically interactive character comedy that’s extremely live and extremely unique. It’ll be a bit different from night to night, and if all the planets align, it’ll be really funny every night. Making people laugh is a special gift from the Kingdom of the Three Heavens created by the newborn baby Jesus, and I’m honoured to help do my bit to spread the Gospel of the blessed Sacrament of the Seven Kings into your heart.
Also I lived in Ashfield (Tintern Rd) for a year, so I’m practically a Sydney local. I’ll be sure to throw in a few jokes about lockout laws and how inept Mike Baird is, unless he’s been ousted by the time this goes to print.
Thanks very much for your time; you’re a good person.
