Stew Walker Cricket Is a Funny Game

Stew Walker Cricket Is a Funny Game

Love cricket, music and laughter? Then don't miss award-nominated musical comedian Stew Walker's hilarious homage to the world's funniest sport.

You'll enjoy silly songs and clever observational humour inspired by Stew's life as a cricket tragic who rose from backyard, beach, school and club cricket to the dizzying heights of playing cricket at Lord's*!

When it comes to cricket, the only thing funnier than this show is Jonny Bairstow's understanding of the Spirit of Cricket!

Stew Walker began his comedy career in 2012 when he was discovered by Adam Hills on his talk show Adam Hills in Gordon Street Tonight.

Since then, Stew has made people laugh at comedy festivals and venues across Australia, UK, USA and Asia. He's also had five hit shows at Melbourne International Comedy Festival, including his previous sellout show The Book of Snorin' - Sleep Apnea the Musical.
