GEN FRICKER: MONSTERPUSSY (MICF 17/04/2015)

Quite possibly Gen Fricker is my fellow Sydneysider, dirty-mouth, insulin resistant, injuring yourself lifting things, dead relationship breakup kindred spirit. Gen sucks you in with her storytelling, all sweet and innocent, next thing you know, it’s a Chinese finger-trap of […]

ADAM RICHARD #FGT (MICF 16/04/2015)

There are few words in the English language I don’t like. The N word and any variation of, P word (paleo, ugh) and the F word. No, not that one, the other one. Unfortunately it has become mainstream again, not […]

ADAM HILLS: CLOWN HEART (MICF 16/04/15)

I could wax lyrical on Hillsy’s comedy and style but I don’t need to. You all know that already. There is a reason he’s one of Australia’s biggest exports and regarded as the nice guy of comedy. What I will […]

ADAM HILLS: CUT LOOSE 2009

I believe this is the title of Adam’s new show, I saw it at the Comedy Store at Fox Studios and there was no name attached to it but I heard the title later and it seemed to fit. And […]

ADAM HILLS: HAPPY FEET (2002)

Adam Hills was in a airport the moment September 11 took place. So not surprisingly a lot of his show was about the aftermath. In particular how scared he was on the flight he took that day, and what an […]

PAUL MCDERMOTT: COMEDYOSCOPY (MICF 2002)

Well McDermott did something totally out of the ordinary – he sang. And why did he sing, he asked the audience, (Because you always fucking do someone yelled out). No, it was a deception, a means of bringing people together. And […]

BOB DOWNE: WHITER BRIGHTER (SYDNEY OPERA HOUSE, 2000)

The only thing that shitted me about this show was the Applefresh dancers. Now I’m a big a fan of Tony Bartuccio as the next person, but they seemed quite full of themselves to the point they were detracting away […]
