What’s On

Speed Sydney1.jpg

coming to sydney fringe

There's a bomb on a bus. If the bus drops below 50 miles an hour, it blows up. WHAT DO YOU DO?!?

Climb aboard our vintage bus for this shameless comedic homage to the 1994 action thriller Speed, the film which proved once and for all the best drama is on public transport.

After sold-out seasons at the Brisbane Comedy Festival and Perth FRINGE WORLD, this trip down the highway of 90s nostalgia explodes into Sydney for the first time.

Warning: contains Hollywood-ish special effects and jokes about Keanu Reeves' career.

The smash-hit comedy showdown follows up its successful Edinburgh Festival Fringe season with FIVE SHOWS ONLY at Sydney Fringe.

Amy thinks the 2003 movie Love Actually represents everything good about the human experience of love. Natalie thinks it's unrealistic and manipulative crap.

This part stand-up, part sketch, part game show, part film lecture show asks whether Love Actually is the ultimate rom-com...or ultimately terrible. Edinburgh audiences - it’s now your turn to decide!

17-21 September at 6pm
Old 505 Theatre, 5 Eliza St, Newtown
Tickets $30/27

It’s Christmas Eve and all New York cop John McClane wants to do is patch things up with his high-powered corporate wife, Holly. Little do they know smooth-talking Hans Gruber and his cabal of Eurotrash terrorists are on their way to hijack celebrations at LA’s Nakatomi Plaza.

With only a gun, a white singlet and the Dad from TV sitcom Family Matters, John McClane must use his wits to survive (and deliver some pithy one-liners).

Full of bare-footed action, danger and our trademark low-fi special effects, this new comedy will have you screaming “yippee-ki-yay“.

21 November - 1 December at 7.00pm & 8.30pm (Sun-Thurs)
Brisbane Powerhouse, 119 Lamington St, New Farm
Tickets $44/$40
