THE BETOOTA ADVOCATE ROADSHOW
The editors of Australia’s oldest newspaper, Clancy Overell and Errol Parker, are set to take Townsville audiences on a journey on what it’s really like holding the reins of the Betoota Advocate. Famous for their witty take on the Zeitgeist of modern Australia, the duo behind The Betoota Advocate Roadshow will deliver Overell and Parker’s trademark humour to the stage live at Townsville Civic Theatre. Listen to how the Betoota Advocate has been able to continue their upward trajectory as rival media companies fall, or merge with Channel 9. The Betoota Advocate Roadshow is set to be a night of laughter, tears and irrational rage. Tickets are limited.

ALEX WILLIAMSON — ‘SO WRONG, IT’S WRONG’
Fresh from sold out shows in the UK and across Australia, don’t miss the ‘Loosest Aussie Bloke’ and ‘Bogan Aussie Commentator’ Alex Williamson’s new live comedy show. With an online following of more than 3 million, Williamson’s show will likely be a sellout. If you’re not an 85 year old churchgoer, there’ll be something in this show for you (with drug references, strong language and likely many other Rrated components — don’t say we didn’t warn you). Critics have called it ‘crude yet hilarious, unfiltered, politically incorrect and downright naughty’. Sounds like fun to us. Visit tickets.oztix.com.au to lock down a seat.
