Game Boys Wide World of Esports

Game Boys Wide World of Esports

2017 Golden Gibbo Nominee Melbourne International Comedy Festival

Eden and Josh are brothers, children of the 90s, and creators of one of the most unique shows you’ll see at the Comedy Festival. 

If you grew up with Tetris, Goldeneye, The Sims or Cheez TV, then you’ll instantly recognise their sibling relationship forged in the bright glare of a CRT TV. Or if you watched Wide World of Sports on a Saturday morning, you’ll go into into the draw to win $5000 Cold. Hard. Cash. Plus two tickets to beautiful Hamilton Island courtesy of our friends at Ansett Australia.

This year they’ll bring you all the action live from the Elympics of the XLIX Olympiad. With live updates from Windows 3.1 Stadium, Greco Roman Tetris, Synchronised Skyrim. Plus all the drama on and off the desktop presented in their signature “high-tech / lo-fi” style.

So join the Game Boys as past and future collide for the Elympic Games of 2092. It’s time to party like it’s 2099. 

'Even those who don’t game will find lots to laugh at as the Porters mug their way through the quest, throw themselves around the stage, comically bicker and act their little socks off with great comic timing.' Squirrel Comedy

Please Note the only accessible performance for this show is Saturday 14 April 5.30pm
