It's back! Competitive comic true-storytelling without a net!
When comedians get together they stand around trying to top each other with a more entertaining story or a funnier gag. While one is person is telling their story, the others are preparing to launch into their own ‘even better’ story. It's competitive, it's fast and its very funny. I Can Top That! puts this scenario onstage and gives you a front row seat.
The show is hosted by veteran comedian and storyteller John Knowles. It showcases the wit and comic recollections of John and three brilliant comedic performers, each bearing a brain-load of amazing true tales to tell. The stories are sometimes shocking, often embarrassing, poignant or sweet but invariably really funny. Audience members suggest the story topics and themes to keep the comedians on their toes. John Knowles dips into his treasure trove of unbelievable-but-true stories and dares his guests to try and top him. Sometimes they do.
Returning for its third season, I Can Top That! features Australia's top comedians in a show like no other. Challenged by surprise topics and themes, John and his guests must recall real life stories from their past without a moment's preparation. Each guest attempts to 'top' the story told by the previous guest with the audience judging their efforts.
John Knowles directs the action ensuring that the show is pacey, funny and always surprising. Stories are often sweet, embarrassing, scary, revealing or shocking but almost invariably very funny. Competing for laughs and OMG! moments. the guests will reveal just about anything to win over the crowd.
Every night is completely different. See you there!
