Die Roten Punkte (the utterly dysfunctional pairing of German siblings Otto and Astrid Rot) became an instant household name in Europe after topping the charts in Germany and Poland with its 2005 hits ’I’m In A Band’ and ‘Best Band In The World’.

  • ‘A truly unique and hilarious show. He’s a creative whirlwind of joy and fun; don’t miss your chance to catch one of the true gems of the comedy scene.’ Time Out London 2009
  • “…an imaginative show that is well worth seeing.” The Age 2009
  • “Freewheeling genius and Midas-like ability to make the most jaundiced audiences see their world anew” Sydney Morning Herald 2009

In 2009 Sydney got the chance to witness the phenomenon that is The Al Pitcher Picture Show. Since Feb 2009, Al has been touring the globe with his award winning show. Each day before a show, armed with a digital camera, Al will venture into the city he is performing in to capture the world as he sees it. Every night, Al will weave the day’s events into a truly unique and hilarious show, complete with his photographic evidence. This is a very brave concept for a comedian as he needs to create a new show every day.

This year every show will still have unique, new pictures taken that day but they will be combined with his favourites from his tour of the World! Over 12 months after his world tour began Al is looking forward to showcasing some of the best and worst of his travels as well as his new, local images from the day’s adventures.

Venue: Parade Theatre
Date: Sunday 9 May 2010
Time: 7:30pm
Tickets: A $38 / C $35 / F4+ $32
Bookings: 02 9020 6966

It’s no secret that comedy is a male dominated industry. Currently only 15% of the comedians listed on industry website are women. Sydney Comedy Festival seeks to redress the balance through their Mother of all Galas, a night celebrating all that’s great about female comedy.

One of the highlights of the Sydney Comedy Festival Program, Mother of All Galas is the ultimate girl’s night out. Moving to the hottest new Sydney Comedy Festival Venue for 2010, The Parade Theatres at NIDA, the Mother of all Galas promises raucous laughter, girly giggles and champagne bubbles. Tell your girlfriends, sisters and even your mum, Mother of All Galas is the opportunity to see the female stars of the festival all under one roof.

In the past the Mother of All Galas stage has hosted some of Australia’s top female comedians including the inimitable Julia Morris, Good News Week’s Claire Hooper, Felicity Ward, Celia Paquola, Hannah Gadsby, Amelia Jane Hunter, Jackie Loeb, Sally Kimpton and Julia Wilson as well as Canadian comedy star DeAnne Smith.
