As audience members, it’s rare to have the pleasure of being in amongst the stage action. Well, most of the time it is, anyway. How about watching a performance on a boat down the Yarra? Well, this quirky little piece, The Stream/The Boat/The Shore/The Bridge (try say that three times fast) has it all. 

 

As part of the Next Wave Festival, the unique performance invites its...

It’s fairly presumptuous to name your musical comedy group The Axis of Awesome. What if it’s not awesome? What if it’s only average? But Jordan, Lee and Benny more than deliver, in the best show I have seen all festival.

 

They’re used to playing in stadiums with fireworks, glitter and dragon-eating cars, they explain at the start of the show, asking the audience to imagine that’...

If there is one thing we expect from Clark, after ten years of releases on the seminal UK label Warp Records, it's change and experimentation in his music.

 

 

His latest album, Iradelphic, starts out with acoustic guitar, moves through arpeggiated synths, crunched out drums and organic sounds. There are even some wonderful collaborations with famed Massive Attack...

At the 2008 Bonnaroo Music Festival My Morning Jacket performed what could well be defined as one of the most legendary festival sets of all time. The four-hour long star-studded jam was the culmination of the Kentucky outfit’s slow-burning reputation as one of the greatest live bands in the world. Australian audiences have since fantasised about experiencing such a performance – with...

In 2007 Dave Bloustien successfully proved in court that he was funny, so it comes to no surprise that he can convince a bunch crowd in St Ali’s in South Melbourne of the same thing. The Social Contract is a reprise of Bloustien’s award-winning show from 2009, with a few new bits for good measure.

 

Bloustien tells the story of a court case that stemmed from a performance on a...

When creating a comedy show, it must be tempting to fill it with stunts, diversions, or pre-recorded multimedia gags.

 

 
These can all be very funny, of course. But it takes a particular kind of guts to stand on a stage by yourself for an hour without even a microphone and try to make people laugh.
 
Michael Chamberlin has that kind of guts. And in case you...

His brothers may be doctors and all, but Akmal is a household name. It’s a bonus that the Egyptian-born comedian describes his childhood background for the audience because it makes his stage persona of being a loveable badass all the more genuine. He provokes hearty laughter when recalling the good old days of harassing the police (it seemed the only entertaining past-time for the non-social...

Christophe Davidson’s ‘Time Of Your Life’ is one of those comedy shows you attend and immediately think ‘why isn’t this in a bigger room’? Held at the modestly sized Tuxedo Cat, which despite it’s stature wasn’t without charms, and the drinks were all (ALL!) $7, Davidson had the crowd in stitches, as well as generously educated about pigeons.
