Hello everyone who reads this (and those who don’t, but that’s less important)!
So, as some (maybe two) of you may know, I am going to be doing my very first comedy show in the Melbourne International Comedy Festival! Very exciting! I’ve called it “I Caught A Plane Today And Boy My Arms Are Tired!”, and it’s essentially a one-person revue. SO basically, there’ll be some stand-up (I’ll not even have a chair), as well as sketches, character pieces and so on. Plus I tap dance! In general, but also in the show.
So, if you live in Melbourne or are planning to visit/move to Melbourne, know anyone who lives in Melbourne or is planning to visit/move to Melbourne or just like the sound of the word “Melbourne”, it would be incredibly kind of you to come along, or at least spread the word so others do! There’s a handy Facebook event here, or for those of you like me who don’t use Facebook, my listing on the Comedy Festival’s website is here. Also follow my conveniently redesigned Twitter page for more updates!
It’s on on the 3rd, 5th, 10th, 12th, 17th and 19th of April at The 86 (185 Smith Street, Fitzroy) and tickets are $16 full and $13 concession. Although if you go to Melbourne University, you can get a 2-for-1 deal! Tickets can (and should) be bought online or at the door. If you buy them somewhere else, they’re probably fakes and you should call the police.
Anyway, thanks for indulging this self-promotion, and please act on it if it is at all possible.
Hope you can come (to the show, that is - although I do also wish you successful climaxes),
For any of my Australian followers out there, Ben is a really cool guy, loves The Goon Show almost as much as I do and probably one of the people that I most talk to on here so you should try out this show if you can!
