So, my MICF planning has basically been trying to see people that I’m not likely to see at the coming-soon Sydney Comedy Festival, with occasional indulgences for absolute favourites of mine where I just can’t wait another few weeks. My indulgence tonight was Hannah. Fed Square Pitch 29 March – 13 April Tuesday-Friday 1pm, 2.30pm […]
Cracker Night goes wild tonight with simultaneous gala performances at Enmore Theatre, Metro Theatre, the Seymour Centre and NIDA Parade Theatre, Kensington. And the Enmore Theatre show is being broadcast live on Main Event, too.
Make sure you join in the fun!
A legendary moment from the 2004 Melbourne International Comedy Festival
That Was The Year That Was is back for its third year as Australia’s Comedy Gala Event of the Year bringing together our finest comedians for a no-holds-barred review of 2010. Hosted by James O’Loghlin, That Was The Year That Was stars Mikey Robins, Peter Berner; Jeff Green, Hannah Gadsby, Rod Quantock, Paul McCarthy, Clayton Doley’s and Organ Donors….Plus many more!
Finally, a Fringe to call our very own! Through 2 weeks in September in Sydney’s Inner West, a festival of alternative delights.
The Sydney Fringe is a look underneath to the urban and the unconventional.
No wonder they were such a hit last year at the Edinburgh Fringe, and just about everywhere else they’ve taken the show. Highly recommended.
The sight of Josh Et Beau (Josh Ladgrove and Beau Fitzpatrick) in a touching Good Friday tableau as the Madonna and child is probably burned into my brain for ever. And I’m not trying to make that sound like a bad thing.
The show’s conceit is that of a conference a la the 2020 Summit on the rising influence of religion on Australian politics, although religion got off pretty easily due to overriding satirical distractions.
Who doesn’t love the opportunity to goof around in a vaguely macabre fashion? Which comedy venues are putting on the fangs, capes and neck-bolts etc? Several Sydney rooms are doing themed shows this week – check out your favourite comedy venue and see what ghouls they have dragged forth to entertain you.
They’ll be at The Factory Theatre in Marrickville on Fri 30 Oct at 9.30pm, and at the Enmore Theatre on Nov 1st at 7:30pm as part of THE ABC OF MONEY, MONEY, MONEY! showcase of comedy, cabaret and improvised mayhem hosted by Libbi Gorr.
