Off the back of sold-out seasons, the three-time Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee makes a triumphant return with his latest show! The star of Live at the Apollo, Larry Dean is set to return to Melbourne, promising audiences an unforgettable night filled  with "expert observational humour’" (The Independent, UK). Renowned for being a "stitch-inducingly funny, expert regaler of daft" (Rolling Stone), Larry’s new show is a perfect concoction of wit, charm and downright hilarious storytelling.

This gallus Glaswegian goon seamlessly blends expertly crafted observational comedy with a delightful touch of heart, ensuring that laughter resonates not only as entertainment but as a shared experience. With magnetic stage presence and sharp comedic timing, honed through years in the spotlight, Larry promises an evening that transcends mere laughter — immersing the audience in the contagious joy of his uniquely crafted humour.

This brand-new show is more than just stand-up. It's a chance to witness the brilliance of a seasoned entertainer who effortlessly navigates the delicate balance between heart and hilarity.
