‘An Incompetent Life’ to Brighten Up Yours

  • Geraldton Regional Art Gallery (map)

An Incompetent Life, is a short look into a life that could've gone a bit better.

Local comedian Brian Poller looks at life just a little differently; using incompetence to gain success – or at least one version of success.

Poller will be performing his unique comedy show, that sold out at Fringe World 2017, as part of the Big Sky Festival in Geraldton on Friday 25th of May. The event will be held at the Geraldton Regional Art Gallery commencing at 8:15pm sharp (limited tickets available to the public).

Fitting in with the festival theme of “windswept words”, Poller’s intricate storytelling will have you completely absorbed in his world.

This one man show has been more than 50 years in the making... A soaring saga of disaster and comedy; inanity and depth.

In Brian’s world, competence may lead to success and money, but incompetence is a shortcut to seeing things a little differently, if only out of necessity.

“Anyone who loves tales of adventure, tragedy and raw life truths will love Brian Poller’s An Incompetent Life,” said Euphorium Creative Ringleader, Julian Canny.

“Brian’s story telling ability is incredibly engaging and will have audiences hanging on his every word. It’s also completely inspiring through his ability to tell his story and perform to a live audience, all whilst having a speech impediment.” Said Canny.

Tickets can be bought at the Geraldton Regional Library or over the phone. Please contact Tracy Smith on or 9956 6659.

Find out what the Red Rubber Thing has to do with loss, how reticulation can only be managed from the inside, and a few other things that can’t be mentioned here due incompetence!
