MARK WATSON EXPORTS HIS MIRTH WITH GREAT SUCCESS (Seymour Centre, 27/04/10)

Mark Watson should be selling out shows in Sydney. Where the hell were all of you?? Even to a half capacity crowd in the York Theatre, Watson definitely didn’t disappoint. In fact, as is common in smaller crowds, the more […]

RUSSELL KANE: SO TOTALLY RANDOM (Sydney Comedy Festival, 23/4/2010)

So totally random (kinda). Now imagine if you will that Ross Noble and the Boosh’s Noel Fielding had a baby. Combine Ross’ quick wit, energy, and ability to improv with Noel’s absurdity, fashion sense and hair, have them raise the […]

After years of waiting. I finally got to see the man referred to as the “Grandfather of Australian Comedy”. And it was worth the wait. It was a perfect way to commence Comfest. The name derives from when the organizers […]

And you thought you were spending too much time on the internet.Dave Gorman’s tale of what began as a simple reply to a bizarre email and ended with him travelling all over the world meeting complete strangers, is a tightly […]
