The Butterfly Club presents

Con Coutis Half Steam Ahead!

A cruise ship. Staffed, operated and inhabited solely by Con Coutis. Soak up some sketch comedy. Relax and unwind with some stand-up. Enjoy some wordplay in the tropics. The SS Steam-Dream – boarding now!

After the completely sold-out run of Daydream (2021 Melbourne International Comedy Festival), Con Coutis is certifiably Half Steam Ahead! with his debut solo show. This exciting young comedian uses “fast-paced dialogue, physical comedy and witticisms” (Lot’s Wife) to keep audiences on their toes.

Written and Performed by Con Coutis (The Dark Side of the Room 2019 Melbourne Fringe, Daydream 2021 Melbourne International Comedy Festival)

Direction and Sound Design by Justin Gardam (Winner Green Room Award for Music Composition and Sound Design 2020, Winner Best Comedy 2020 Melbourne Fringe)

Lighting Design by Georgie Wolfe (Treats Fever 103, Daydream 2021 Melbourne International Comedy Festival, The Bachelor S17 E05 La Mama/Mechanics Institute)

Produced by Sophie Ashkanasy (The Bloomshed, Body Horror 2021 Melbourne Fringe, Pining for Affection: a Tree Musical 2018 Melbourne International Comedy Festival)

Praise for Daydream (2021 Melbourne International Comedy Festival)

‘One of the slickest, fastest-paced and funniest hours of comedy I have seen for quite a number of years.’ Squirrel Comedy

‘Daydream is truly a surprising show [featuring] clever clusters of comedy characters [that] keep the laughs rolling [and] regular lashings of wordplay and rhythmic dialogue.’ Tay Around Town.

Praise for The Dark Side of the Room (2019 Melbourne Fringe)

‘Ripping slapstick comedy… with linguistic sophistication.’ Weekend Notes

‘Fast-paced, clever, and most of all, funny.’ Lot’s Wife
