Yianni Agisilaou Australia Says Welcome (Conditions Apply)

Crowded & Carrie Hardie for Serious Comedy present

Yianni Agisilaou Australia Says Welcome (Conditions Apply)

Nominee Best Comedy 2015, 2017 & 2018 Perth FRINGE WORLD

1965: Yianni’s Mum is called a wog by her teachers.
1994: Yianni is called the same by his classmates. 2019: Yianni is finally called a straight white guy. Ladder, climbed.

From Yianni’s roots in Cyprus (ancient island colonised by the Brits) to Australia (ahem…) an hour of stories and stand-up for anyone from anywhere else (and that’s most of us) about when Australia says (and doesn’t say) welcome.

‘Sharp social commentary to compare favourably with Woody Allen. ★★★★' Chortle (UK)

Sheer genius. ★★★★★' Glam Adelaide
