BUCKLE UP FOR COMEDY WITH BITE
BUCKLE up because the Melbourne International Comedy Festival Roadshow is hitting the road to home deliver the freshest and funniest comedy in Kwinana.
A cast of intrepid travelling comedians will make a pit stop at the centre as part of their Australiawide roadshow, bringing laughs aplenty and a jam-packed show to comedy lovers.
With a mix of local heroes and international stars, the roadshow will showcase everything from stand-up and sketch to satire and song in one side-splitting show.
MC Dave Callan will facilitate a “chuckalicious” line-up at Koorliny Arts Centre, which comprises Ben Knight, Daniel Fernandes, Sam Taunton and Steph Tisdell.
Musical comedian Ben Knight draws inspiration from his 10 years as a primary school teacher.
A part-time musician, Ben started changing the lyrics to his acoustic ‘singer/songwriter’ songs while on a strict beans and tortilla diet and teaching in a small Mayan school in the Guatemalan highlands of Huehuetenango.
Daniel Fernandez is one of India’s leading English stand-up comedians, and brings a mix of observational, political and dark humour with a dash of social commentary; Steph Tisdell’s quirky stage presence skips between gleefully playful to biting political satire.
Self-described ‘kewl dude’ Sam Taunton juggles stand-up and various media projects, including being MTV Australia’s newest VJ.
His captive storytelling and quick-fire punch lines have resulted in him emerging as one of the most in-demand acts in the country.
Then there’s veteran performer Dave Callan who, as MC, will take the night to a whole new level.
Due to strong language, sexual references and material that can offend, the show is recommended for ages 15+.
Ben Knight will be part of the laughs at Koorliny Arts Centre.
