David has been working hard to bring laughs to the locals in the Huon Valley.
Next weekend, there is the LOL Comedy Megashow at the Palais Theatre in Franklin. Tasmania’s
own Josh Earl, as seen on Spicks 'n' Specks and many other TV shows and comedy festivals, is
headlining a huge line up of local comedy talent on Saturday
21 November. There will be 16 fantastic Tassie comedians on the bill for only
$30. Food and drinks available from 6pm, show starts 7.30pm. The
event is primarily about having a funny night out, however,
profits will go toward the Franklin Tennis court restoration project. Last year's event saw around 180 people laughing themselves silly. Don't miss out - you can still book online here or buy tickets (cash) at the door.
Last month, it was Damian Callinan's solo show The Lost WW1 Diary. Damien was the star of last year's big comedy lineup at the Palais in Franklin, so it was awesome to have him back. The show is funny and sad at the same time and as always, Damien does an amazing job of localising his show for the town he is performing in and interacting with the audience. The audience loved it. He has been touring this show around the nation during the ANZAC centenary, and for the 100th performance here in Franklin we had a special visit by the Tasmanian Lighthorse, a World War 1 exhibition by the Franklin History Group and terrific pre-show music by the Huon Valley Society Orchestra. And a LOT of laughs.
Update: read what Damian had to say about his show in Franklin. Too funny.
