Jokers Comedy Club Hobart

I’m doing a show at Jokers Comedy Club in Hobart on September 18th. This is a one night only thing.

I’ll be doing a different show to the last time I was at the club so if you saw me last time it will be completely different. It’s a great room for comedy and if it’s anything like last time it will be an awesome night.

For more information and tickets for the Hobart comedy shows you can check out the Jokers Comedy Club website here.

In a perfect world the above sentence would have been the end of this post. Simple and to the point about the show I’ve got coming up in Hobart. Unfortunately, because of *oogle’s strangehold of the internet individual posts need to be around 300 words before they’ll show up in search results. I still need another 145 or so.

Later this month I’ve got some shows in Port Macquarie and Newcastle. I’ve also got some more shows in Brisbane coming up in October. I’ll post more on all of these once I have finalised all of the details.

In conclusion, you can get tickets for the Hobart comedy shows at the Jokers Comedy Club website here.

You can also check out some of the past shows I’ve done here.

Take that *oogle.

Sydney Comedy Festival Showcase Tour

Over the next few months I’m doing some regional shows as part of the Sydney Comedy Festival Showcase tour. It’s a traveling Comedy Roadshow that gets to as many regional venues as possible. It’s a fantastic night of comedy in loads of awesome regional venues across Australia.

These are line-up shows and generally have 5 or 6 excellent comedians on the bill. All up it’s about 2 hours of top quality stand-up comedy that you don’t have to travel very far for.

First stop for my leg of the tour is The Blue Mountains on the 15th of August . You can get more information on that here.

Next stop is Nowra on the 17th. You can get more information here.

There’s a bunch more coming later in the year and I’ll post them as soon as the details are online. You can see all of the currently on sale Sydney Comedy Festival Showcase Tour dates and sign up to their mailing list for future announcements here.

If you’re looking for my gigs closer to Sydney, I’m doing Sydney Fringe at the beginning of September with Luke Heggie and Alex Jae. You can get more info on that here.

See you on the road.

Tea With Alice Podcast

I recently recorded an episode of the super successful Tea with Alice Podcast with Alice Fraser. We sat down and drank tea and shot the shit for an hour. Grab the Tea with Alice Podcast Daniel Townes episode on iTunes here. There is also a very extensive back catalogue of episodes to listen to, and also a Patreon account for the loads of the extra unreleased content here.

The Tea with Alice Fraser Daniel Townes Podcast recording was a lot of fun. I honestly can’t remember 100% everything that we discussed by I do remember leaving having had a good laugh. And I was a lot smarter than when I went in there.

Her personal website and entire catalogue of work is here at Alice Fraser Comedy dot com.

For other comedy podcasts I’ve recorded or been a guest on you can check out the podcasts page.

In semi-related news the new podcast I’ve been working on is coming along quite nicely. Without getting ahead of myself I am still in the planning/pre-production stages as I’m going to make sure that this one is different to anything that I’ve ever done before, and hopefully something that hasn’t been seen in an Australian Comedy Podcast since Dave Jory and myself put out K Cast back in the day.
