Damian Callinan Stress Test

Hey Boss

Damian Callinan Stress Test

As the three-time Barry Award nominee approaches the anniversary of a heart attack, Damian Callinan undergoes a stress test. Can he still weave stories, conjure characters, land punchlines & dance while connected to an electrocardiogram? Be part of the experiment as the ‘The Merger’ star explores all matters of the heart.


As he takes the audience through a check list of his trademark stage skills, the story shifts to the biographical as he reveals his cardio rehab story. Set on a path of self-revelation, the heart testing takes a different tack as his physical recovery is placed in the context of a family tragedy that has shaped his recent emotional path.


Stress Test puts Damian in the driver’s seat of a car he knows how to handle: a biographical storytelling sedan with comedy wheels and a pathos finish.

'One of Australia's best character comedians.' Herald Sun


'Powerfully intelligent comedians like Callinan are rare... one of the country's best performers.' The Age
