Absurdist comic Ross Purdy (2022 Melbourne International Comedy Festival Golden Gibbo Nominee) has to put on the show of his life when the country is taken over by a fascist dictator. If he fails to entertain our new leader he’ll be executed by the state in this brain-bending fever dream sketch show.
Ross Purdy makes his Sydney debut with his anti-establishment anti-comedy for the anti-social that’s an all out ass-salt on the hiney of Australian culture.
A “rambling surrealist satire” with “insanely quotable one-liners” (Beat Magazine) that’s “like Lars Von Trier and David Lynch trying to out-mindf*%k each other” (Great Scott) and mixes live grotesque puppetry and reality-blurring videos in a multi-media eyegasm of character comedy.
Watch Ross Purdy urinate on the corpse of satire.
