Xavier Toby 'Mining' My Own Business

What’s life really like as a worker on a FIFO (Fly In Fly Out) mining site?

Where everything’s huge, highly explosive or high-vis, right down to the socks, jocks and skid marks.

Where expletives are punctuation, a $50 note is loose change and the safety regulations are tighter than NASA, but still plenty of people who break the rules.

Where dinner is steak, steak or barbecue steak with salad, there are more utes than trees, and enough dust to keep your nostrils filled from noon till night.

It’s Australia’s Wild West.

Previously sold out: Melbourne Comedy Festival, Sydney Fringe, Perth Fringe World, Adelaide Fringe.

“A smorgasbord of chuckles. ★★★★” SGfringe (UK)

“Hilarious.” Herald Sun

“A clever concept executed really well. ★★★★★” Yelp Sydney

Stories adapted from writer and comedian Xavier Toby’s debut non-fiction book, Mining My Own Business (available through UWA Publishing)
Directed by Janelle Koenig
