THE BIG GIG - FEATURING ADAM ROZENBACHS

THE BIG GIG - FEATURING ADAM ROZENBACHS
Thursday, November 27 2014, Doors 7.30pm, Show starts 8.00pm

Feature Comedian - Adam Rozenbachs
Support Comedian - Nick Penn
MC - Mandy Nolan
18+ Show

Adam Rozenbachs - stand up comedian, writer, broadcaster, actor, voice over artist - has steadily risen to become one of Australia's funniest and most consistent performers, writers and broadcasters.
"Think Jerry Seinfeld with a black heart." The Age
Adam has performed eight successful Melbourne International Comedy Festival Shows: Wrong Way, Keep Going; Traces of Nut; the sell-out Singledumb; Repressed Memory Lane; the critically acclaimed Singledumber; the sold out seasons of 2012’s The Good Stuff and 2013’s Eurodad [extra shows added], and the 2014 success about his alcohol free year, Breaking Booze.

“His best show yet! In less capable hands, the you-know-how and don't-you-hate-it-when gags would be a parade of lame observations. But Rozenbachs has a remarkable ability to laser in on the things we think but don't say - or are too embarrassed to admit we do - with a fresh, edgy perspective.” The Age, April 2011

A master of dealing with hot topics in a non-offensive way, as an Arabic Australian he navigates religion, terrorism and makes hysterical observations of modern Australian life.

Any examination of The Black Sorrows inevitably comes down to one person. Joe Camilleri (singer, songwriter, saxophonist, producer and the brains behind The Black Sorrows) is one of the most genuinely talented figures in Australian music. This year, with 45 albums under his belt, Joe Camilleri will celebrate 50 years in the music business and is showing no signs of slowing down. In the award-winning documentary of his life in
music, Joe Camilleri: Australia’s Maltese Falcon, Jane Clifton described Joe as “indefatigable”. It is his seemingly tireless drive to continually perform and record quality music that has rewarded him legendary status and well-deserved longevity in the music industry.

JIMEOIN....Is it?!

JIMEOIN....Is it?!
Saturday, January 10 2015, Doors open 7.30pm, Show starts at 8.30pm

Hailed as one of live comedy’s masters, Jimeoin’s shows are a fluid mixture of his signature observations and more razor-sharp take on the absurdities of everyday life. “No one else raises so many laughs by doing so little – his expressive eyebrows deserve a spin off gig of their own” Evening Standard, London

Coming Attraction...... DANIEL CHAMPAGNE

Coming Attraction...... DANIEL CHAMPAGNE
Saturday, January 24 2015, 6.30pm

One reviewer recently wrote – ‘Daniel Champagne exudes a natural ease on stage, as he sings poignant lyrics and beautifully crafted melodies that invariably whisk the heart up with grand romanticism. Coupled with an exhilarating guitar talent that transcends mere acoustic playing to replicate a whole band, Champagne is just magical’ (themusic.com.au)
The story goes that the young Australian singer, songwriter and one-of-a-kind guitar virtuoso first picked up his instrument of choice as a five-year-old following in the footsteps of a musical father. He began writing songs at 12, training classically throughout his teens and performing solo wherever he could, honing his craft and developing what would become the dynamite live show that he is renowned for today. At 18 he left school, turned professional and hit the road.
