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.

Sydney Fringe Comedy 2019

Sydney Fringe Comedy Festival 2019 kicks off at the end of August. I’m doing another split bill show with Sydney comics Alex Jae and Luke Heggie.

The dates are the 4th – 8th of September and it’s at The Factory Theatre in Marrickville. The show is called Is it?

Tickets are cheap coz we are trialling brand new jokes. Most of them will shine. Some of them will bomb. A few will make us wonder what the hell we were thinking to classify such a half-baked idea as finished comedy.

Overall It’s a fun week and most definitely my favourite time of year on the Sydney Comedy calendar.

This is the 5th year in a row I’ve done the show with Heggie and the 3rd with Alex. As you can see from last years pic we had a ball. (Luckily we could use the pic for the online registration stuff and posters for this year).

These shows are great nights of having a laugh and the three of us trying extremely experimental/brand new comedy. You can get more information/tickets for our Sydney Fringe Comedy Festival 2019 shows here.

It’s going to be great.

Is it?

For regional shows outside of Sydney, I’ve got a bunch coming up with the Sydney Comedy Festival Showcase Tour.

Or if you’re too cool to leave the house for comedy you can check out the episode of the Tea With Alice podcast I was a guest on here.

(And here’s a stupid pic I photoshopped quickly last year to plug our 2018 show online)

Homeless families in London are now being housed in shipping containers. Homeless families in London officially have nicer houses than Londoners.

Oh great so Sco Mo has committed Australia to joining US military efforts in the Strait of Hormuz. Says our involvement will be limited and modest, which translates to our entire naval fleet.
