Blake Everett & Oliver Coleman Dig Their Own Graves

IN PERSON

Blake Everett & Oliver Coleman Dig Their Own Graves

Blake Everett and Oliver Coleman are two of the funniest comedians to have ever existed. If you haven't seen them before it's because lately they’ve been so overwhelmed dealing with the day-to-day admin of their shovel sales empire that comedy has taken a backseat.
That’s right - Blake and Oliver are also shovel salesmen. They have a Cert III in Digging Holes and a Cert IV in Entrepreneurship, as well as all sorts of critical acclaim for their solo-shows.
They are combining their two loves (comedy and manual hole digging implements) in order to bring double the laughs, and double the shovels, to the Melbourne Comedy Festival for their first show as a duo. But something lurks in the dark underbelly of shovel sales. Will they survive the night? Or will they end up digging their own graves? (please note: shovels will be for sale in the foyer before and after the show - cash only).
