He will perform his award-winning show, Man Vs. Wil for a further 3 WEEKS – from September 9 to 25.
This is the annual night of hilarity where some of the nation’s top comedians slide environmentalists under the grill… and turn up the heat! All proceeds go to The Wilderness Society’s campaign to protect the environment.
Michael Workman, up and coming comedian from Perth, is about to move to Melbourne to pursue more comedy opportunities. Here he is performing at Sydney’s Comedy Store in the Moore Park Entertainment Quarter.
’tis the season of comedy festival previews, and all through the land comedians are taking the chance to do slightly longer sets than usual in front of friendly audiences…
We stayed on for the Thursday night stand-up showcase, this week featuring Daniel Townes as MC, Dolores Lorette and Umit Bali as openers, Jarred Christmas as the featured support and John Moloney as the headliner. This is a very well-balanced line-up, kudos to the managers.
ohn Moloney’s mix of comedy and music has made him one of the most in-demand acts in the UK and abroad, and it’s fantastic to see him back in Sydney again at the Comedy Store EQ. Drily acidic and understated with an occasional flash of sheer naughtiness, Moloney is a classic exponent of traditional stand-up craft, and is a pleasure to watch in action.
Josh Thomas really is very likeable. His quirky look and semi-stammering (yet beautifully timed) delivery plays to the appeal of the underdog, generally being a good sport about the series of humiliating moments he recounts from his life. Self-deprecation is a common comic’s strategy for making the audience forget the power the person holding the mic on the stage has right then, but Thomas takes it beyond just getting the audience on his side into nearly a performance art piece.
There’s a bunch of Poms laughing it up at the Comedy Store EQ this week. They’re bloody good fun normally, but this week you just know that they’ll be having a bit of a gloat about a certain game of cricket in which Australia came second.
Wil Anderson is putting together a DVD, and on Tuesday night the cameras will be rolling for his one-night-only appearance at Sydney’s Comedy Store. So why not go and celebrate the end of the financial-year-end frenzy with a top night out?
Sydney Comedy Festival’s sell-out success – the Comedy Store Festival Club Showcase is a show too good to stop. Due to popular demand the showcase extends for another three weeks until Saturday 6 June; with the recent announcement of huge headliners Steve Hughes and Jeff Green.
