Groovyman

Groovyman is a family-friendly superhero 'mockbuster' set in the last days of disco from the team behind successful Melbourne International Comedy Festival productions Robin Hood: The Untold Story, Live and Let Spy, You Only Laugh Twice and Dead Men Tell No Jokes.

Can Groovyman, his sidekick The Boy Funkster and ace reporter Bonita De GoGo stop a rogue’s gallery of supervillains including The Hustler, Polly Esther and the Piano Man from destroying Funky Town? With classic disco sung live, funky costumes and cutting edge special effects (for 1978), Groovyman is the family-friendly comedy where you’ll believe a man can jive!

‘Achieves the kind of bald-faced absurdity of a good Leslie Nielson/Zucker brother’s movie.’ Illegitimate Theatre

'Words such as "brilliant" and "hilarious" do not even come close to describing this show – nor for that matter do the words "gazebo" or "rastarfarian".’ Shaun Micallef

'Pun-tastic.'  Herald Sun
