The Resistance Bar put my name on a flyer for the first time and I'm doing the room again this week! Great room run by great people. It feels a little bit like a cave and it's kind of hard to leave so if you're in there you've got to stay to the end. That's what I look for in a room. It's also really warm. Come down and treat yourself to cheap drinks and free comedy.Find out more »
Apparently comedians with clout have won this competition. Alumni include Eve Ellenbogen, Donna Collins, and Lewis Graham. I know two out of those three people and they're funny so I have my work cut out for me. Come along and support please! Winner is decided by loudest cheers and they get their Melbourne Fringe Festival entrance fees and liability paid for so come out and watch me do my thing ❤ I'll bribe you a beer.Find out more »
I'm so excited to do this venue. I go there every Monday at 8:30 to see the show, even though I'm not on. It's a bigger gig than what I'm used to and it's always packed out with a bunch of people standing out the back. There must be at least 150 people. There's TV comedians on the lineup every week and they select an up-and-comer to join the show. On September 10th, that's me! Free entry. Great drink deals. Really good comedians. Come down 🤙Find out more »
