Rod Quantock -
In the Beginning: A Walking Tour of the Birth of Melbourne Comedy
27 March - 17 April
Rod Quantock is in the running. Not for parliament - he's in the running for the craziest man on Brunswick Street. To say Quantock's walking tour of Melbourne's comedy hot spots is insane is an understatement. Rod guides us into shops where he performs the material he started off with, interviews random strangers, steals a chair from a passing ute, stops traffic with a rubber chook on a broomstick, and makes us sing Jingle Bells on a tram running up Gertrude Street. It runs a tad longer then expected and walking from Brunswick St to Smith St gets tiring for some, but there's plenty of entertainment on hand for the interested punter. Recommended.
