Groovyman

We will b back with a brand new show Groovyman which takes on the superhero and disco genres as part of the 2021 Melbourne International Comedy Festival.

The show is a family-friendly superhero 'mockbuster' set in the last days of disco as Groovyman, his sidekick The Boy Funkster and ace reporter Bonita De GoGo stop a rogue’s gallery of supervillains including The Hustler, Polly Esther and the Piano Man from destroying FunkyTown - live on stage!

With classic disco sung live, funky costumes and cutting edge special effects (for 1978) where you’ll believe a man can jive!

 

Featuring an award-winning cast of the regions finest comedic actors including Ian Nash-Gilchrist (Kinky Boots), Ed Dolista (The 39 Steps), Scott Popovic (The Producers), Jenn Stirk (If/Then), Ian Rooney (The Doctor Blake Mysteries), Cassia Webster (The 39 Steps), Nick Addison (The Last Five Years) and Stacey Carmichael (Hope Song).

“Achieves the kind of bald-faced absurdity of a good Leslie Nielson/Zucker brothers’ movie.”

“Pun-tastic…you get lots of laughs for your buck” – Herald Sun

 

“Words such as ‘brilliant’ and ‘hilarious’ do not even come close to describing this show - nor for that matter do the words ‘gazebo’ or ‘rastarfarian’” – Shaun Micallef
