So it is December, my favourite month of the year – not for the tree, tinsel, stars and a big fat man dressed in red that somehow seems to get into our house despite our dead bolted door and lit fireplace. The cause for my excitement is due to a select number of tickets for the Melbourne International Comedy Festival get put on sale.
Yesterday I booked my first of MANY shows:
- Dave Bloustien (Good News Week writer and part of the trio for Puppy Fight Club)
- Fiona Scott-Norman (the ranga on Channel 31’s With Tim Ferguson); and
- Scared Weird Little Guys – Farewell Tour
There are a lot of shows I am looking forward to seeing; one being this years Barry Award winners: Sammy J and Randy. In 2011 they will star in a show entitled Bin Night.
When Sammy J and Randy discover somebody dumping trash in their rubbish bin, they arrange an over-night stake-out to catch the culprit. But when their surveillance operation takes an unfortunate turn, they’re forced to confront some painful questions – with only seven hours before sunrise to find some answers. Why has Sammy been blacklisted by the emergency services? Whatever happened to Randy’s globe-trotting girlfriend? And what exactly are they hiding in their own rubbish bags?
Lock your doors and separate your recyclables…It’s going to be a long night.
Others that I am looking forward to see are:
Adam Hills (if he does a show)
Ali McGregor (If she does a show)
Dead Cat Bounce
And many more….. will update
