comedy, Fangirl, Josh Earl, Melbourne, Melbourne International Comedy Festival, MICF, Randy, Sammy J, Wil Anderson
… and I’ve already seen three shows (one was a preview, technically, so I saw that on Thursday). Here follows super short review of each.
Number 1: Free Wil / Wil Anderson
Most people who live in Australia know Wil Anderson. I hadn’t seen him live before but I thought why not! So I did. It was excellent. Quite thought provoking. Recommended!
Number 2: Square Peg / Josh Earl
Josh Earl does song related comedy. I saw him do Spicks and Specks one time before they cancelled it. As my Facebook friends would know this show involved bubbles and Nick Cave’s ‘Stagger Lee’, what’s not to like? Recommended!
Number 3: An Evening with Sammy J and Randy / Sammy J and Randy
Sammy J and Randy, apparently soon to be on the TV in their own sit com on ABC. They were both much ruder and better in person. Got touched by Randy when he fell into the crowd (I was in the first row), and accosted Sammy J when he was at the restaurant where I ate dinner. Recommended!
Over the next few days/weeks I’m going to see more shows, not sure which ones yet, we’ll see. I’ll try to see some people I haven’t heard of and will definitely see some shows that are not by straight white dudes I promise!
We’re off to the spiegeltent on Saturday to see Ongals!
