Tour selling out; Lunchtime going off!
True to form, the Melbourne Museum Comedy Tour is starting to sell out, with this Thursday night already full. If you’re planning to see the delights of Melbourne Museum after hours with DeAnne Smith, Alexis Dubus, Andy Muirhead (on Thursdays and Fridays) and Kent Valentine (only on Saturdays), we recommend you book! Check out comedyfestival.com.au, or call Ticketmaster on 1300 660 013.
Meanwhile, our first ever Melbourne Museum Lunchtime Comedy session was a big hit! Audience members’ brains were regaled with Roman history by Andrew McClelland, filled with Phar Lap (in Indonesian!) by Penny Tangey and philosophy by Dave Bloustien, and then tickled with tales of Vikings, computers and bizarre behaviour by Dave Callan.
This weekend we’re doing it all again, and it’s a stellar – sorry, Stella – line-up!
- Dave Bloustien (Puppy Fight Social Club) gives us a second helping, this time on ancient Greek history;
- tale-teller Sarah Bennetto (Storyteller’s Club, The King & I) is unscrambling the history of the world’s favourite word game, Scrabble;
- two-time Raw Comedy state finalist and frequent Political Asylum guest Stella Young will be educating us on the secret life of animals, including the sex life of ducks; and
- cannibalism advocate, comedy historian and living national treasure Rod Quantock (The People We Should Eat First (And How To Cook Them), In The Beginning: A Walking Tour of the Birth of Melbourne Comedy) takes a break from preparation for the coming apocalypse and instead claims he’ll be talking about “Pre-Columbian art between 11.45AM and 8.15pm BC”.
Come and join us at noon on Saturday April 10th! Tickets $18/$12/$14 groups (six or more) from the usual places: comedyfestival.com.au, Ticketmaster on 1300 660 013 or at the door on the day.
