Presentation is Everything is an hour of fast-paced stand-up comedy that is visually complemented through the medium of Microsoft PowerPoint.
This split-bill show is written and performed by two of Melbourne’s fastest-rising and extravagantly overdressed comedians, Sweeney Preston and Ethan Cavanagh. This brand-new show is packed with slides full of images, news cut-outs, maps, animations and (you guessed it) graphs to punctuate their quick-witted stand-up.
After a sell-out, extended season at the 2022 Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Sweeney and Ethan are taking this show on the road to The Sydney Fringe.
Armed with outfits they can’t afford and a .ppt file they can’t attach to an email, this is a show where presentation truly is everything.
Between them, Sweeney and Ethan have performed at The Festival Club (MICF), The Cape Town Comedy Club (South Africa), Christchurch Comedy Club’s Pro Night (New Zealand), Saturday Night Laughs Wellington (NZ), The Queenstown Comedy Club (NZ) & Comedy At The Espy (MICF). They have also featured on the airwaves of ABC Radio Melbourne and Perth, Triple R, Radio New Zealand National, SYN, Season 9 of The Leak, JOY94.9, Season 10 of Offbeat & ABC’s Stand & Deliver.
