It was at last years Melbourne International Comedy Festival 2010 that I heard the festival buzz about these Irish comedy-rock band that had received great reviews for their show at the Roxanne last year.

So I booked a ticket and headed to see them last year and I was blown away that I hadn’t decided to see them sooner.

They formed in 2008 as a sketch group; when three of them were living together they wrote a sketch and got the name Dead Cat Bounce, also a stockbroaking term because their first sketch was three stockbrokers standing around a dead hooker.
