The Plan For Melbourne

So Jac and I are headed south to Melbourne in just over a week and we went through the Comedy Festival guide and picked out a shortlist of shows to see. The aim was to see acts and shows that would not be likely to come to Brisbane - hence we omitted big name acts like Tim Minchin, Arj Barker, Stephen K Amos, Dylan Moran, etc.

(I tried to tabulate this before but it made my blog look all fucked up like.)

So here is just the list of the shows I am to bear witness to out of hundreds in Melbourne over the week of the 18th to the 25th...

In the order I'll be seeing them...
AH FUCK. I just realized I forgot about Daniel Kitson. Who's getting the chop so I can see him...

... maybe the lawyers.

A few years ago - on my MySpace blog - I did this massive play by play of my four days in Melbourne for the festival and what I saw and who I met. Covered David O'Doherty, Josh Thomas, Laughapalooza, The Delusionists, Tim Minchin, etc. It was very detailed. I hope to do that again this year. It really is a great experience. Love Melbourne, love the comedy festival. I remember there being zero ego by all the performers if you went up and chatted after a performance.

I really hope it's like that this year again. :)
