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.

WHEN: Satur­day, Novem­ber 3 from 8pm

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.

WHEN: Fri­day, Novem­ber 9 from 8pm

WHERE: Kir­wan Tav­ern, 154 Thuringowa Drive COST: From $29
