URZILA CARLSON: POISE CONTROL (MICF 15/04/2015)

Life is too short to drink bad coffee. Bad coffee can ruin your whole day. It can make you want to stab people. At least according to Urzila. We have slowly but surely become an angry society.  Ready to fly […]

TRIPOD ARE TRIPOD

I was not that impressed with Tripod this time round, and I feel really bad for saying it but it’s true. There was little new material.Pretty much if you’ve been watching Skithouse or have seen their Christmas Show last year […]

CARRY ON CALLAN

I didn’t quite know what to expect with Dave Callan. The only thing that I had seen him on was Rove Live and an episode of Standing Up. The show started off quite slow. A friend of Dave’s (Damien Clark) […]

ROD QUANTOCK: SCUM NATION 2003

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 […]

TRIPOD: LADY ROBOTS

Still waiting on the DVD guys. I was extremely impressed with this show. Tighter scripts than in previous years, extremely creative in its execution. Basically, being tired of their constant adventures the boys decide to go on holiday.In driving in […]

SUE ANN POST: OPINIONATED BINT (MICF 2003)

I love Sue Ann Post. She is one of the few female comedians I really admire. For most of her material, she doesn’t resort to blatant stereotyping which many of her other female comedians use. The true essence of a […]

ROSS NOBLE: SONIC WAFFLE (MICF 2003)

Radioactive Kung Fu Fridge Boy and Monkey Slayer is back.Despite what tends to happen with comedians when they become more popular, Ross played to packed audiences every night, and did not disappoint. (for those wanting to know the formula of […]

ROSS NOBLE: SLACKERS PLAYGROUND (MICF 2002)

The thing with Ross Noble I could never figure out was how much of his work was improvised and how much was scripted. So I decided to find out.For research purposes (of course), I went and saw this show twice […]

JUSTIN HAMILTON: JUSTIN SANE (MICF 2002)

Controversial? Yes some may say, hilariously funny? most definitely. Such a variation of themes, grand entrances, the worse opening to a novel for the year, star wars, light shows, all tied together with the normally humorous undertone of a friend […]
