Best in Comedy 2023 Sydney Fringe Finalist

The world’s first playable video game comedy show.

In 198X, Karate Man defeated his evil nemesis Ross Roundkick and restored peace to Karatetown. Now the year is 20XX and he must face his most challenging adventure yet – ordinary life.

Sit back and pass the video game controller around with your fellow audience members as you command the titular Karate Man and face a variety of challenges, meet crazy characters and make show-altering choices in this one-of-a-kind interactive comedy experience.

Karate Man is the latest comedic project by Bruno Dubosarsky and Daniel Scarratt of sketch group BEAK, who have entertained audiences around the world with their strikingly absurdist humour. They are joined by a cast of Sydney’s favourite alt comedians (Tim Dunk, Steph Ryan, Maddie Atkins, Juliet Rae Timmerman) to deliver a show that will be loved by gamers and comedy fans alike.

Following an incredible tour at the Adelaide Fringe and Melbourne International Comedy Festivals, the show returns to Sydney, where their newest batch of players await (that’s you!). Come along for a unique show that’s different every time. It will make you laugh, it will warm your heart… it will be an exhausting and sweaty ordeal for the guy on stage.
