WHAT: Australia’s pre-eminent live political comedy group
WHEN: Wed-Sat March 21-24
WHERE: Civic Pub
Political Asylum is Australia’s pre-eminent live political comedy group, performing regularly to sell out crowds in Melbourne, and featuring appearances from the best political comedians this country has to offer. In preparation for a big new show at the 2012 Melbourne International Comedy Festival, they’re bringing their core team of talented funny men to the nation’s capital for a whistle stop tour. There is certainly something distinct that sets political comedy apart from the wider stand up scene, and often it?s as much about the audience as the performer. Says comedian and co-founder of Political Asylum Mathew Kenneally, “Our audiences read the paper and watch the news, and they?re clamouring for some pointed humour at the expense of Barnaby Joyce or Mark Arbib. We do our best to oblige.”
Start time is 7.30pm, and tickets are $20/$15. For more info head to www.politicalasylum.com.au .
