The Bedroom Philosopher Cat Show

Winner Directors' Choice Award 2009 Melbourne International Comedy Festival

Comedic jazz-cat The Bedroom Philosopher (triple j) returns for an extra special purr-formance. He’ll celebrate his back cat-alogue by playing every song that mentions a cat, while dressed as a cat. It’ll be Cat Stevens versus Cat Power with Kitty Flanagan by a whisker. Enjoy an intimate evening with this witty meowstro.

The Bedroom Feline-of-fur is best known for his triple j hit ‘Northcote (So Hungover)’ which is the Khe-Sanh for hipsters. He won the Directors Choice award at Melbourne International Comedy Festival and made his debut appearance on Spicks and Specks seven times (repeats). He has supported the likes of Amanda Palmer, Peter Coombe and Tripod.

In 2009 he played a young John Safran in John Safran Race Relations. He has appeared on the Melbourne International Comedy Festival Gala, Rage and Adam Hills Tonight. (He was on Collectors with his collection of 300 1970's ties. The vision was so confronting that the show was immediately axed).

As Justin Heazlewood his book Funemployed: Life as an Artist in Australia was published in 2014 and a series on Radio National. His latest album Funemployed LP is available on Spotify which keeps him in cat biscuits.

'He is so hip, he’s absolutely not hip at all.' Amanda Palmer

'A daggy, sexy and acerbic hurricane of whimsy.' Sydney Morning Herald

'One of the few artists making a genuine attempt to explore the oddness of our age.' The Age

"The Bedroom Philosopher’s show was one of the best things I saw at Port Fairy 2013. My colleague had tears streaming down her face and I honked like a seal with an airless laugh-gasp that neither of us could conceal. The performance was equally as funny as it was clever, and with the addition of his excellent band compadres, showed Heazlewood’s ever-evolving maturity as an artist and musician.” Mandi McIntyre, Program Manager, Woodford Folk Festival.

"Moments that make you howl with laughter arrive through Heazlewood's half-crazed awkwardness and erratic brilliance. If you appreciate offbeat humour, Heazlewood's eccentric, wildly unpredictable stage presence may be your catnip." Cameron Woodhead, the Age/SMH.
