Loud and angry Spaceship Men
THREE American comedians are set to take to the stage at the Clink Theatre later this month to perform their new show, Spaceship Man.
The Sound and Fury trio - Richard Maritzer, Patrick Hercamp and Ryan Adam Wells - are masters of improvisation and tour the world together performing genre parody plays covering a range of diverse topics such as physics, literature and politics.
They are currently performing at the Adelaide Australia Fringe Festival for the fourth time and will be travelling to Port Douglas before heading to the Melbourne International Comedy Festival.
The new play, Spaceship Man, is about a major Cyrus ’Cy’ Fie who comes out of retirement to travel to Mars to stop a rogue officer who’s taken the law into his own hands.
Actor Richard Maritzer performed at the Clink Theatre two years ago and is longing for another visit to Port Douglas.
“Spaceship Man is a three- man show doing a lot style comedy with lots of costume changes and no fourth wall so we are constantly talking to the audience throughout the show,” he said.
“It is a parody of every science fiction movie throughout time and I play William Shatner throughout the entire show.”
The play is full of funny “one liners” and double entendres and the trio thrive off interaction with the audience during performances.
Actor Ryan Adam Wells is looking forward to performing the show here in Port Douglas.
“I think it is a fantastic show. If you are a fan of science fiction than you are going to be so rewarded by it,” he said.
“We really take the piss out of every science fiction movie ever made.
“Even if you are not a science fiction fan you are really going to have a fun time watching the show.”
They will be performing at the Port Douglas Clink Theatre on March 25 and 26.
Tickets are available at the Junction Café on Front Street in Mossman and at the Tour Desk Kiosk outside Coles in Port Douglas for $25 each.
Two free tickets to the show on Friday 25 are up for grabs for the first caller on 0437 367 868.
