The Ceduna community is set for a night of laughs when three comedians take to the stage for a mega show at the Thevenard Sports and Community Club next month.
The Christmas Comedy Show will include award-winning Adelaide comedians Fabien Clark, Rich Naberhood and Lori Bell, known as Granny Flaps, delivering their hilarious material.
Anthony Lamond of Anthony Lamond Productions said people could expect plenty of variety between the three comedians.
“These are very polished comedians who have been doing stand-up comedy for more than 10 years, and all are award-winning comedians who have done Fringe [Festival] shows and performed all around Australia,” he said.
“They know their audience – they have done a lot of shows in country regions and understand the connection with the audience – and nothing is off limits, so anything you can think of will be touched on.
“They are self-deprecating and don’t take themselves seriously so it will be a good old fashioned comedy show, and off the back of last year’s successful show with Fiona O’Loughlin, this could be even better.”
Clark was the winner of the 2013 Adelaide Comedian of the Year award and was also nominated for the Adelaide Fringe best comedy show in 2016, Naberhood was nominated for the 2015 Adelaide Comedy Awards progress and development award and has supported big-name shows in Adelaide such as Sam Newman, Sam Kekovich and Mark ‘Chopper’ Read, while Granny Flaps won the best act at the 2010 Adelaide Fringe.
Mr Lamond said Clark would host the evening, followed by Naberhood, another set from Clark and then the headliner Granny Flaps.
“Fabien’s show will be an in-depth look at his life, divorce and separation from his wife who left him for another woman – he is very open about that,” Mr Lamond said.
“Rich will talk about his life growing up in Elizabeth and going to school there, while with Granny Flaps there is a lot of crowd interaction, she sings parodies with her ukulele.”
The Christmas show will take place on Friday, December 7.
Doors open at 6pm for dinner, with the show to start at 8pm.
Tickets are $65 for dinner and the show, or $35 for the show only, and are available from the Thevenard Sports and Community Club or online at www.trybooking.com/ZEWV.
Mr Lamond said tickets sales were going well.
“This will make the ideal staff Christmas party, so book early to avoid missing out,” he said.
UPDATE: It has also been confirmed that local musician Dan Eramiha will be performing throughout the evening, while there will also be a courtesy bus provided. Information on how to book the courtesy bus will be provided when purchasing tickets through Elaine Kerridge on 0428 253 313.
