You won’t want to miss The Comedy Emporium’s show on October 10th, with your favourite local comedians and THREE headliners performing in the one and only Spiegeltent! It will be the biggest comedy show on earth (or at least in Geraldton)... In a tent.
“This is absolutely the most amazing venue you will ever get to be in!” says The Comedy Emporium’s Coordinator Emma Howell, “Oh - the comedy will be pretty good too.”
The Comedy Emporium has partnered with Gfest to perform in the Spiegeltent and produce this once- off show.
“You can even get tickets cheaper to both events! Comedy show tickets are only $25 if you get your Gfest ticket at the same time,” says Emma. “The tent can only fit so many people... So make sure you get your tickets ASAP! There will be no repeats.”
There are three headline comedy acts ready to go - the theatrical John Robertson from the UK, the hilarious International Touring Comedian Matthew Dyktynski and the wonderful Joel Bryant who was awarded best show at the 2013 Brisbane Fringe Comedy Festival! “I am not really sure how we can afford three headliners, but it will be an amazing show even if it means I have no job next week,” says Howell.
Your favourite local acts will be on show again, with teenage comedian Jackson Canny looking forward to the show.
"Last time when I performed I forgot my set, which made it even funnier?" He said.
There will also be two comedy first timers to sacrifice, and one of the originals to welcome back - James Butson. “After two shows absent it will be great to have my comeback in a tent where I can really clown out to my crowd!” Said James.
Tickets on sale now for $29 each presale $35 at the door. For enquiries please ring 0458 306 111. No BYO alcohol. Bar available.
John is a Renaissance man with a Black Plague wit. A comedian, playwright, YouTube visionary and clown, he's performed everywhere from rained- out bomb shelters in Hungary to legendary comedy clubs in London and packed theatres in Sydney. He's had fans dress as him, been concussed by well- meaning punters and generally made the world a louder, more frightening place.
"Brilliant - you could do worse than see John's show, but you'll rarely do better." - Chortle AU Trivia: John's sadistic YouTube game "The Dark Room" has been played over 4,000,000 times worldwide. He has stage- dived off the roof of a theatre with Brendon Burns and a purple puppet. He will either carefully construct material, or make shows up as he goes. He owns many swords. Likes Star Trek, frock coats and top hats. Also pro wrestling. Doesn't drink wine. Comedy through fear. John is also the official MC of the Supanova Pop Culture Expo, Wai- Con Anime Convention and Madman National Cosplay Competition. Wherever he goes, he brings the nerd love, manic slapstick and smart cynicism.
“There’s something wonderful about watching an intelligent and articulate person, point out how bizarre the world is.” “I couldn’t get offended... I was too busy laughing.” “There’s a beautiful message in what you do.”
Joel thinks they are the loveliest things ever said about his show. Joel has established a reputation as a quality act as well as having worked with acts of the calibre of Anthony Jeselnik, Ted Alexandro, Greg Fleet, Fiona O’Loughlin, Chris Wainhouse, Geraldine Hickey, Steddy Eddie and Austen Tayshus to name but a few. With the rare ability to adapt his act and establish an instant rapport with all, Joel never fails to leave audiences filled with his infectious energy and passion. Joel dreams of a world where we laugh because it’s funny... Not because we need to. He enjoys gardening, beer, a good hug and pondering why we treat each other like shit. When he grows up he plans to stamp his feet and yell “No!”
