I had no idea that studying comedy as a course at high school was even possible to count as part of the approved curriculum, but William Brennan of Warburton, VIC, is doing it next Friday night. His Livewire Comedy Night will feature such comics as Dave O’Neil (as heard on Vega and Nova), Michael Chamberlain (star Channel Ten’s Skit House), Comedy Festival favourites Karl Chandler and Tommy Little, and finally Michael Connell and William Brennan himself (two of the Yarra Valley’s own home grown comics).
