Sydney Comedy Festival 2019

My Sydney Comedy Festival 2019 show is on sale. It’s called Indeed and It’s a collection of all of my favourite jokes I’ve told over the years, excluding 2018 and 2017, and including a bunch of new stuff that I’ve been playing around with since last years festivals.

I’m not doing a brand new show this year, I’m aiming to record 2018’s show later in the year and have been using the majority of my stage time making sure that is as tight as possible. I love doing the Sydney Comedy Festival and performing to home town crowds so it seems silly for me to give it a miss when I can walk onstage and kill for an hour with my eyes closed.

Side note for anyone in the ACT, the show I’m talking about recording is the one I’m bringing to Canberra Comedy Festival on March 19th.

The Sydney dates are May 1st – May 5th and you can get all of the relevant information here. There’s a lot of extremely tight material packed into this show and I’m going to have a lot of fun doing it.

I’m still getting the artwork finalised but in the meantime I’ve made the handy little pie chart below to show how the five nights are going to play out.

See you there.

I’ve got some Brisbane shows coming up in January at the Sit Down Comedy Club and a bunch of other places. More information is available here, or by clicking the image below.

Other gigs around the country will be added to the shows page and/or the events tab over Facebook. There’s more information about my Canberra Comedy Festival shows here. My Sydney Comedy Festival show is in May, I’ll post more information about that in the New Year.

Happy New Year and 2019 Mo Fo’s.


Canberra Comedy Festival

My Canberra Comedy Festival solo show is on the 22nd of March 2019. This is my show from the 2018 Festival season so it’s super prime and ready to roll. Tickets and more information are available here.

There’s an FB event here. And here’s a bunch of other stuff i’ve done over the years to potentially whet your whistle, including videos and my bio.

If you’re interstate or wherever else and would like to know when I’ll be around, keep and eye on the latest news or shows.

Early January I’ll be in Brisbane, and am looking to get back to Perth for the Comedy Festival in May. Wherever you are, hit the links and hopefully i’ll see you there.

My Canberra Comedy Festival show is coming up in March. You can get to Canberra from anywhere in Australia. Tickets are here:

I thought his brand was meant to symbolise luxury? Heinz ketchup and 3 star fittings/carpet do not equal luxury. Neither does that big shit on the carpet in front of the counter that someone hilariously put a USA hat on.

Dress codes can piss off. Not only telling me I have to dress they’re telling me how I have to dress.
