Are you tired of the nightly news? Find trawling through the newspapers a tad dull? Sick of getting your topical humour from the same old network approved “stars”? Why not let the Political Asylum team bring you news-comedy that’s hot, razor sharp and other things that make it sound like a burning sword.
Launching their new monthly show at the Melbourne Fringe Festival Club, Courteney Hocking and Mathew Kenneally are joining forces to bring you the finest topical and political entertainment Melbourne has to offer. Featuring:
+ topical stand-up from the best and brainiest political comedians in Australia including Aamer Rahman (Fear of a Brown Planet), Jon Brooks (former journo and former political staffer), Toby Halligan, and the brilliant Nelly Thomas;
+ a special problem-solving focus group led by political comedy icon Rod Quantock;
+ audience challenges; and
+ surprise political guests.
This is not cookie-cutter comedy – this is entertainment for people who have brains and know how to use them. It’s topical, political comedy from a new generation of stand up comedians.
