10 x 60' Specials
Ten stand-up specials from some of Australia’s best comedians, filmed at Melbourne's Malthouse Theatre for a global release on Amazon Prime Video.
Zoë Coombs Marr: Bossy Bottom
Zoë Coombs Marr has been on hiatus. Sort of. For six years, she won stacks of awards and acclaim as a hack comic with a neckbeard called Dave. Whatever. She’s scraped off the neckbeard and is BAAAACK… as herself. There is no comedian quite like Zoë. Bossy Bottom is a joyously silly return to very serious stand up from the MICF Most Outstanding Show winner and Edinburgh Best Show nominee.
Celia Pacquola: All Talk
Co-creator, co-writer and star of ABC TV’s Rosehaven, Celia Pacquola is a true luminary of Australian comedy. A multiple award-winning writer-performer, she is sharp, frank, deft and smart as hell. The stand-up stage is where the journey all started for Celia and it’s where she happily returns in the triumphant All Talk – a homecoming of sorts for one of Australia’s most in-demand comedians.
Tommy Little: Self-Diagnosed Genius
Idiot or genius? For many the jury has been out on Tommy Little, but he’s here to set the record straight. Would an idiot bungee jump nude on live TV? Or sign up to run and Antarctic marathon with no previous experience or training? We rest our case. Tommy has refined the art of how not to live – see how truly entertaining that can be, with one of the year’s most raucous hours of stand-up.
Alice Fraser: Savage
Alice Fraser's critically acclaimed comedy show, Savage, is about paper towels and how not to murder people who “mean well”. A hilarious and heartbreaking show that walks you through the razor edges of a life stripped bare. How you deal with losing everything, what Buddhists do with rage and how bubble blowers work at funerals. Savage talks about things that are actually sad and also very funny.
Judith Lucy: Judith Lucy vs Men
Judith Lucy is single again. Reflecting on her entire history with men, she concludes that maybe it’s time to shut up shop: ‘Whatever it is that I’m selling, a lot of straight men simply aren’t interested in buying it.’ In this show Jude recounts her full history with the opposite sex and asks the audience to determine whether she should ever date again. Should Judith hang up her vagina for good?
Dilruk Jayasinha: Bundle of Joy
Sri Lankan-born Dilruk Jayasinha is one of the most in-demand headliners on the Australian scene. Whilst his small-screen star continues to soar thanks to his appearances in Utopia and Have You Been Paying Attention?, it is on stage that he flies, with a reputation for consistently nailing his shows – The Art of the Dil; Sri Wanka; and Cheat Days – with his positive, upbeat brand of stand-up.
Lano & Woodley: Fly - Live in Melbourne
Australia’s favourite double act Colin Lane and Frank Woodley have reunited to create the comeback masterpiece FLY. No more stupid silly nonsense, it’s time to make THEATRE! An epic show about the history of aviation, no less. There is no reason whatsoever to think this will go as planned.
Tom Walker: Very Very
A love letter to mime (and to a coat) written by award-winning idiot Tom Walker, who keeps talking during what he insists is a mime show.
Tom Gleeson: Joy
Australia’s 2019 Gold Logie winner. Chief celebrity interrogator. Host of the highest-rating quiz show on TV. There’s not much Tom Gleeson hasn’t been up to lately. Gleeson is one of the sharpest minds in Australian comedy. His shows are relentlessly hilarious and masterful. Now the world can watch the great man live on stage, in his natural habitat and in the form of his life. Experience the JOY.
Anne Edmonds: What’s Wrong With You?
Anne Edmonds is the rock star of Australian comedy and everybody knows it. Welcome to her debut special. In just one hour, she’s going to tell you what’s wrong with you and everyone else. ‘The best comedian in Australia’ - Herald Sun.
