Andrew Dawson Ambien Excuses

Andrew Dawson Ambien Excuses

Ambien Excuses is Andrew Dawson’s debut Melbourne International Comedy Festival performance. It's a show about the disparity between the kind of person we want to be, and the kind of person we actually are – and the excuses we comfort ourselves with.

Join Andrew as he shares the life lessons he's learned the hard way, as well at the mental gymnastics he performs in a futile effort to justify a plethora of questionable choices. From growing up in Tasmania (which wasn’t his fault), to that time he ended up on an episode of Highway Patrol (he was a victim of circumstance), and the pitfalls of trying to bribe Israeli soldiers to cross a border (which is frowned upon, apparently).

'Dawson charms you into a false sense of security before sucker-punching you with his irreverent wit.' WeekendNotes
