Tickets for all the Sydney Fringe Comedy shows went on sale this morning, (the festival takes place between the end of August and the end of September) and among the shows on sale is “Welcome to the Moon”.
I decided that if I was going to do the Fringe this year, which I am, I was going to do something weird. I figured, I might not be lots of things, but one thing I am is me and so the show is going to be me. Which, just so happens to mean weird.
Hopefully, accessible, but probably not for everyone.
My first solo show was about an apocalypse caused by chickens, the next one was about a haunted fairground and featured a song about the ghost of Farmer Jensen, who milks you, fucks you and kills you. But Welcome to the Moon, I think will be even more odd, or who knows, maybe it will be the most accessible one yet. Here are some pull-quotes I was thinking of using;
“Definitely not a show for everyone”
“If you have an open mind, and an intrigue for absurdist comedy –– you will be satisfied”
Both from Rocio Mendez (Alt Media).
There was also one from a reviewer in Adelaide where he said something along the lines of, ‘I was unsure whether I was watching a comedy show or watching someone having a psychotic episode’. It wasn’t a good review and I have mixed feelings about my inability to find it online.
Anyway, if it sounds like your thing you can get tickets here. It might not be for everyone, but it could be for you.
I know I am determined to enjoy it.
