Quick! Even More Comedy Recommendations Before MICF Ends and Leaves Our Lives Feeling Empty Once Again.
Let’s not even bother prefacing this with anything. You know the drill.
If you like sketch comedy and the music of Ed Sheeran [note: you do not need to enjoy the music of Ed Sheeran to enjoy this show]: Sketch-ageddon
A very funny end-of-world story told through sketch comedy, with added pop music! Starring Jimmy James Eaton and the guy from the iSelect ads. [link]
If you like stand-up comedy that references quite a bit of 80s glam-metal: Xander Allan
This is another cheap show at the Imperial that is good value for money. Especially if you like Whitesnake. [link]
If you like making fun of bad selfies: Hannah Gadsby
This show was sold out last night, and will probably continue to sell out throughout the remainder of the festival. Therefore, if it is something that you would like to attend then you should probably buy tickets now. That is my advice to you. [link]
If you are sick of me coming up with these stupid “if you…” introductions for each show and just want me to get on with the bloody recommendations: Neil Sinclair
Very good stand-up comedy with a bonus ukulele. Neil is very clever, integrating props and pre-recorded elements into his show. If I were running on more than three hours of sleep then I would maybe be able to explain why this makes Neil stand out amongst some of the other performances that I have seen. But I can’t. Also: Neil, if you’re reading this – I apologise for my negativity before the show, and hope that I made up for it with my example of how not to eat tuna. If you’ll forgive me, I think we could be friends. [link]
If you like that guy “frezned” off the interwebz: Tom McLean
Good. Funny. Cheap. Value for money. Not really about ghosts. Etc. [link]
