5 Good Reasons To See Scott Limbrick: The Last Blockbuster on Earth

1. The resolution is unbelievable. Forget Blu-ray, DVDs, VHS or laser discs. This show will be as visually sharp as reality itself, maybe even sharper.

2. It’s fun for the whole family! But if it had to go through the film classification board, it would probably get an M15+.

3. You won’t believe how many genres this show can fit in it. I’d say at least nine – such is the power of the video hire store.

4. No need to rewind. I physically cannot do the show in reverse! You are in absolutely no danger of witnessing this.

5. No late return fees. You literally can’t return this show, so there is no way you can be charged for being tardy in doing so. Instead, you can keep it as a treasured memory forever.

5 Good Reasons to See Incognito!

1. This show will provide some much needed escapism – it’s a period comedy murder mystery in the style of Agatha Christie. Incognito! will transport you back into a time of martinis before dinner, when everyone was glamourous and intriguing.

2. There is absolutely no audience participation in this show. No one will ask you where you are from or what you do for a living. No one will ask you if you’ve noticed the difference between cats and dogs. You can just come along and sit in the dark and giggle. Fourth wall is maintained at all times during performance.

3. This is a fun, most-ages show. You can take your grandparents and your parents. You can take your teens. You can take a stranger. Please, only take a stranger with their permission. No pets.

4. Instead of staying in and binge-watching old episodes of Poirot or Miss Marple or Midsomer Murders, you can get out of the damned house and see a lovely new twisted version of these wonderful shows. With jokes. And now you’re out of the house!

5. We are performing at the historic La Mama Courthouse. This isn’t some weird venue that eleven months of the year is an office or a closet or something. This is a proper venue with a lovely and intimate foyer and bar where you can have a drink with the performers every night after the show and tell us if you guessed who the murderer was. See you there.

Incognito! is on at The Carlton Courthouse from March 30 to April 4

5 Good Reasons To See Luke Morris – The Wine Science Show: Second Vintage

1. Come along if you enjoy sparkling red. The wine that looked at Champagne and said, “Hey, would you like some flavour with that?”

2. Come along if you enjoy big topics like neuroscience, memory loss, pollination, cyber security, memory loss, psychology and, arr, memory loss.

3. Come if you enjoy decanting wine. Which is a messy but useful thing to do. Much like having a drummer in a band.

4. Come if you like Durif, or don’t know Durif, or want to know the mystery of Durif. This show has a history tale in it about Durif.

5. Come along for a lazy afternoon wine and laugh. It’s at 4:20pm and so perfect for a pre-dinner learned or unlearned tipple.

Luke Morris performs The Wine Science Show: Second Vintage, at Coopers Inn, every weekend at 4:20pm

1. Value: Seven characters for the price of one ticket! Reviewers have said “Chris has an amazing talent with bringing characters to life and impeccable accents to match.”

3. Various Hilarious: Satire, irony, stories, characters, topical, surreal, observational, word-play, one-liners, and some plain old silliness… by the end of the show you’ll have seen it all, and it’s guaranteed to make you laugh.

4. Unique: there’s no show quite like Mephisto Waltz. Chris’ performance style has been reviewed as, “…completely different and out of this world…”

5. Adventure: You’ll cross four continents, save rainforests, find out about your own past, and maybe even learn how to dance. This is an adventure that you won’t forget.
