Two word review: talent smorgasbord.
Congratulations to Karl Chandler, Tommy Dassalo and everyone who has been part of the Little Dum Dum Club for reaching 300 episodes and celebrating in style at the Croxton Park Hotel in Thornbury on 25 June.
Starting off the night with some stand-up, Tommy, Karl, Dilruk Jayasinha, Xavier Michelides and Demi Lardner strutted their stuff. Great to see Dilruk and Demi live again after their excellent MICF2016 efforts in ‘Sri Wanka’ and ‘Life Mechanic’ respectively. Xavier had a confident stage presence, a surprising array of characters and delivered a solid short set for the occasion at hand.
- Tommy and Karl book-ended their stand-up well in classic Dum Dum style. Side note: the mini-versions of Karl and Tommy were haunting!
- Demi completed a dangerous stunt (and overcame significant OH&S issues) through brilliant use of the podcast medium. Also, who knew Demi could rap?
- Without trying to spoil the podcast…can we talk about Dave’s talent for voices? Having only heard his impressions on the podcast, seeing them live was an absolute treat!
- Dum Dum Club live events excel in comedians sitting around, having a great time riffing off of each and making as many jokes as they can.
Great to meet some of the comedians on the night (thanks Adam and Danny) and always keen to buy comedians a beer/coffee and chat comedy anytime. And Tommy, if you’re keen on designing logos… love to see what you’d do with Hugging Comedians!
Thanks Dum Dum Club for the 300 episodes and putting on a crazy but entertaining night!
