Angus Brown Everest

Mockingbird Orange

Angus Brown Everest

'Every dead body on Mt. Everest was once a very motivated person'.

Angus Brown returns to Melbourne International Comedy Festival with his unique brand of stand-up and storytelling.

And this time he's going big. 29,000 feet big.

At the freezing cold base of Mount Everest in Nepal, 40-year-old used car salesman Albert Bentwater readies himself to attempt one of the most brutal physical feats of endurance and skill know to humankind – the summit of Mt. Everest. 

On a warm safe stage in Melbourne, comedian Angus Brown makes fun of things. 

How far would you go to achieve a goal? How much would you sacrifice to follow a dream? Does UberEats deliver to the deathzone?

In a show that is part stand-up, part stage show and all hilarious, Angus attempts to do the the impossible – to summit Mt. Everest (and try to understand why anyone would want to) live on stage. 

'Think Monty Python, if they had Billy Connolly's observational skills, being fired through a machine gun. ★★★★' ArtsHub
