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.

Here’s an old favourite from the first show I recorded in 2011, I called it Previously because it was my way of moving on from the material, like “hey here’s some jokes I used to do when I started out.” You can also grab the whole thing in glorious high definition right here.

If that’s not enough comedy for you there’s short clips on the media page here.
