It's that time of the year again. Possibly my favourite Melbourne festival and an event that would be one of my ideal jobs. The 2013 Melbourne International Comedy Festival is in full swing, with over 400 Aussie comedians and 75 International comedians to give us laughter stitches, it's sometimes hard to know what to go to. Last night I went along to Jimmy James Eaton and Jason Geary in their show Sketch-ual Healing and was laughing my ass off all night!
I have to be completely honest, I had never heard of them before I went, so I literally had no idea what to expect. Because of this my expectations were pretty low because in the past when I've gone to comedy festival gigs that I've never heard of, it hasn't been great. But these two Aussie blokes really blew me away. If you're after clean, silly humour (the best kind) with a hint of satire, this show is for you. If you've ever wandered what would happen if Michael Caine and David Bowie were pun wielding superheroes in the 80s, this show is for you. If you like Twilight, this show is for you. If you don't like Twilight, this show is for you. If you're after an array of quirky characters and one hell of a plot twist at the end, serious, this show if for you.
I also got to see my best friend from primary school who I took along to this show. I hadn't seen her since 2010 because she moved to QLD and has been in America for the past 3 months. Please excuse the shiny faces. In conclusion, if you're looking for a good (and pretty cheap) night out at the comedy festival, check out Sketch-ual Healing.
