Orig­i­nal com­edy of­fer

Warragul & Drouin Gazette - - ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT -

Old Drouin But­ter Fac­tory will wel­come the re­turn of “Here, There and Ev­ery­where The­atre Com­pany” with an orig­i­nal com­edy show filled with hys­ter­i­cal stand-up, crazy skits and out­ra­geous char­ac­ters.

The Trar­al­gon-based com­pany will per­form new­est of­fer­ing “You’re Skit­ting Me…Again!” on Sat­ur­day at 8pm.

Boast­ing a cast of 20 per­form­ers and spe­cial guests from across the Gipp­s­land re­gion, this show pokes fun at cul­ture, tele­vi­sion news, pol­i­tics, cable style ad­ver­tis­ing, first world prob­lems, the­atre and many other top­i­cal and re­lat­able is­sues.

Direc­tor Phillip A. Mayer says, “it’s the type of po­lit­i­cally-in­cor­rect, edgy en­ter­tain­ment au­di­ences have come to ex­pect” from the com­pany.

“Part of our aim is to get peo­ple who don’t at­tend the­atre, for what­ever rea­son, in the door and pro­duce fun ma­te­rial which shows that the­atre is great en­ter­tain­ment and a top night out,” he added. “Au­di­ences love our shows, they lit­er­ally laugh non-stop and leave the the­atre ask­ing why more the­atre isn’t like this. ‘You’re Skit­ting Me…Again!’ has it all and no sub­ject is taboo. The cast are noth­ing short of bril­liant, they’re very, very funny. If you en­joy the Com­edy Fes­ti­val Road Show, you’ll love this.”

“Here, There and Ev­ery­where The­atre Com­pany” is no stranger to the Old Drouin But­ter Fac­tory. They have pre­vi­ously per­formed shows such as “Bo­gan Shake­speare” and “The Com­edy of Life; Speak­ing Alone Two”.

“What you’re go­ing to see is fast-paced com­edy in­spired by co­me­di­ans like Dave Hughes, Will An­der­son and Carl Bar­ron. There’s a twist of in­san­ity, a drop of crazi­ness and a slice of school-yard smut. It’s sar­cas­ti­cally ab­surd com­edy served with thought-pro­vok­ing barbs.”

Tick­ets to see “You’re Skit­ting Me…Again!” are $20 per per­son.
