ANDREW McCLELLAND: I AM THE VERY MODEL OF A MODERN MAJOR MUSICAL. A CONTEMPORARY GILBERT & SULLIVAN.

MELBOURNE, VIC (COMEDY FESTIVAL)
13 – 19 APRIL 2020
The Butterfly Club (5 Carson Pl, Melbourne)
BOOK NOW

Winner Jury Prize 2009 Sydney Comedy Festival 
Winner Comedians’ Choice Award 2004 Melbourne  Comedy Festival

In an act of un-economical foolishness, renowned comedian Andrew McClelland has spent the last year writing an operetta based on the works of Gilbert & Sullivan. It will never be produced, but that isn’t stopping Andrew!

In an hour of ridiculous musical performance, Andrew will cut the show from three hours to one and strip back the cast from 90 to just him. This contemporary and loving spin on the ridiculous plot and musical clichés of G&S will tell the tale of a lovelorn corporate law-firm IT department seeking unlikely glory in their inter-firm football competition.

‘Immeasurably enjoyable.’ The Age

THE SANDMAN AND FLACCO TRIBUTE SHOW (ALL ORIGINAL CAST!)

PERTH, WA (FRINGE WORLD)
30 Jan – 2 Feb 2020
The State Theatre Centre of WA
BOOK NOW

In 2020 comedy legends Steve “The Sandman” Abbott and Paul “Flacco” Livingston are arriving in Perth for their pre-world-premier-premiere show The Sandman and Flacco Tribute Show (All Original Cast).

Ten years ago these two fictional characters passed away quietly, without fuss. Both were struck down with a deadly affliction known as “Irrelevance.” Apart from exhuming their alter egos of the 80s and 90s, Paul and Steve will startle audiences with their sublimely adequate musical talents. This will be an hour you will never get back.

Don’t miss this rare chance to pay your respects before the scattered remains of The Sandman and Flacco, in these world first, exclusive death-warmed-up shows.

ANDREW McCLELLAND: A SEATED WALKING TOUR OF WESTERN EUROPE

PERTH, WA (FRINGE WORLD)
30 Jan – 2 Feb 2020
The State Theatre Centre of WA
BOOK NOW

Armed only with Google Street View, a big screen and an enthusiastic but flawed knowledge of history, Andrew guides you (rather hurriedly) through the great plazas, past the spectacular cathedrals, over the weird statues and through the modernist architectural follies of Europe’s greatest cities and towns. See the things! Learn their stories! Get no exercise! See London! Paris! Feuchtwangen! Fucking! (The town in Austria. Grow up.)

Never has a European walking tour been so quick, funny and indeed, cost effective.

“In a word, brilliant… Raucous laughs and lengthy applause shows McClelland got the ingredients right” ★★★★½ Daily Review
“His goofy, fun-loving personality is undercut by a sharp wit and craftiness… The material is all top notch” ★★★★½ Beat

UMIT BALI: AUSSIE AT LAST!

PERTH, WA (FRINGE WORLD)
16-18 January 2020
The Laugh Resort at The Shoe Bar, Yagan Square
BOOK NOW

Umit Bali is a comedian, immigrant and Australia’s Got Talent Grand Finalist. Join him for a night of energetic and unforgettable tales as he begins his unique, exciting and at times terrifying life as an Australian citizen. Accident prone with a family that can be a little insensitive, Umit brings you the fun, feel good show of the festival.

“Passionate, honest and true, and as an audience member you really want to know what happens… Umit has got funny bones.” ★★★★ The Clothesline.

★★★★ The West Australian ★★★★ The Advertiser

YIANNI AGISILAOU: THE SIMPSONS TAUGHT ME EVERYTHING I KNOW

PERTH, WA (FRINGE WORLD)
17-19 January 2020
The Laugh Resort at The Shoe Bar, Yagan Square
BOOK NOW

Hi, I’m Yianni. You may remember me from sold-out seasons in Sydney, Melbourne & Adelaide. I’ve also won awards at festivals in Edinburgh, Ogdenville and North Haverbrook and by gum it put them on the map! Can an obsessive knowledge of the world’s longest running cartoon embiggen one’s understanding or is that unpossible?

Whether you’re a Simpsons tragic or just love the best show in TV history, this is one fun-diddly-un hour full of impressions, facts and stories including the true tale of how I almost ended up as the replacement voice for Mr Burns and Smithers. DOHn’t miss it!

“We all got our diploma in Homer” ★★★★ ½ The Music
“Go and see this show, even if you don’t know who The Simpsons are” ★★★★ ½ Daily Review
