NOMINEE, BEST SHOW – EDINBURGH FRINGE 2016

WINNER, BEST COMEDY- PERTH FRINGE WORLD FRINGE 2014

WINNER, BEST SHOW- MELBOURNE COMEDY FESTIVAL 2010 (With Sammy J)

 

The smash hit of the 2016 EDINBURGH FRINGE premieres in Cairns.

Randy (McLeod’s Daughters, House Husbands) teams up with a typewriter in this hilarious new hour of spoken word and gratuitous arm movements. Kick back and watch keenly as Randy reads excerpts from his unpublished novel while getting distracted by his own hate-filled ramblings.

Randy has been performing his unique brand of stand-up comedy since 2005 and depending on who you ask, his debut solo show was a highly revered runaway-cult-hit.

He followed that up with the critically acclaimed ‘Randy is Sober’ in 2011, then got all introspective and shit with ‘The Last Temptation of Randy’ in 2013.  He has appeared at festivals all over the world alongside his skinny compadre Sammy J, together they have hosted the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, headlined the Just For Laughs Montreal Festival, sold out the Sydney Opera House, and write and perform in their debut TV series ‘Sammy J & Randy in Ricketts Lane’ on ABC TV.

This show is what happens when Randy cuts sick for an hour.
