It’s twenty years since Bill Bailey first performed on these shores, and he returns to mark this milestone with a new show.
Larks in Transit is a compendium of travellers’ tales and the general shenanigans of twenty years as a travelling comedian. With musical virtuosity, surreal tangents, and trademark intelligence, he tackles politics, philosophy, the pursuit of happiness, death metal, ringtones… and an excruciating encounter with Paul McCartney. Two decades of life as a comic filtered through what the Daily Telegraph calls ‘the brainiest comic of his generation’
‘virtuoso… comedy’s Mozart’ The Sunday Times.
Michael McIntyre, the UK’s biggest selling comedian, is bringing his latest sell out stand up show Happy & Glorious, to Australia in October with tickets going on sale Tuesday 24 May.
The UK and Ireland legs of the Happy & Glorious tour saw Michael sell over four hundred thousand tickets and beat his rivals to the Christmas Number One slot in the DVD chart. His 2015 tour saw Michael awarded the prestigious keys to London’s 02 Arena for an astonishing 27 performances at that venue, which sees him performing more times than One Direction and Take That.
Beardyman comes to Australia for four special shows, including an appearance at the prestigious Just For Laughs Sydney Comedy Festival.
Beardyman, the undisputed guru of beatboxing greatness, is bringing to Australia his groundbreaking live interactive show One Album Per Hour, a fairly self-explanatory notion in which he creates an album on the spot based on audiences’ suggestions. Pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in a live interactive experience, Beardyman has sold out every run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival at one of the biggest venues, Pleasance Grand, as well as selling out his last UK tour.
Julian Clary – camp comic and renowned homosexual - is a British national trinket and a dear and faithful friend of Australia. He is also, while we’re at it, a TV and radio star and author.
Following his sell out tour of the UK, he now brings The Joy Of Mincing down under, and will be performing in Sydney, Melbourne and Perth. He will perform at the iconic Sydney Opera House for the Just For Laughs Sydney Comedy Festival.
The Joy of Mincing is Julian Clary’s celebration of 30 years as a camp comedian. There is so much to tell you; the ups and downs of his sordid love life, the true and heart stopping account of how he saved Dame Joan Collins’ life, and don’t start him on the perils of his DIY electrical home enema kit.
“Laden with filth and innuendo”
On stage Julian will proudly wear his well-deserved M.B.E (Mincer of the British Empire). It was the last thing he expected to receive when he knelt down in front of Prince Charles in the scullery at Buckingham Palace…
