Tickets also include supper served in our groovy rustic ARTS LAB comedy club. BYO Drinks. Seats are limited, bookings are essential. Don’t miss out!

A note from the idiot himself:
We Are Idiots is a one hour stand up show that reflects my view of the modern
world. It’s about having been young, Vietnamese food, doing comedy in war
zones, getting old, taxi’s, the terrifying honesty of small children, race relations,
Cardinal Pell and throwing cream buns at ducks. The show contains most of the
swear words that I know, so if you find the grouping of certain letters offensive,
you will be horrified at my utterances. But come anyway, who doesn’t like feeling
indignant. The show will be followed by a Q and A session with my old school
friend and the first person I was ever on stage with, Ian Darling. There may be
tears and a small amount of fighting. Please attend, I think it will be quite the
thing. GF xxx
