The Melbourne International Comedy Festival Roadshow winds its way into the Mandurah Performing Arts Centre on Wednesday, May 30 and brings with it some of the festival’s most highly acclaimed comedians.
Joining the Roadshow, Melbourne-based stand up David Quirk, who is visiting Mandurah for the first time, said the roadshow was a great way for people to see the best that the Melbourne International Comedy Festival had to offer in their own backyard.
‘‘I think people should come out because it’s a good night of comedy,’’ he said.
‘‘It’s some of the best and funniest acts that have been on during the Melbourne International Comedy Festival and I think audiences would be mad to not come.
‘‘Unless there’s something really good on TV, and it’d wanna be really good. And even if it is, just tape it.’’
Quirk has toured Australia and overseas, bringing his slightly dark and unusual style of comedy to audiences across the globe. He was quick to point out his comedy wasn’t the usual ‘‘punchline’’ comedy, but insisted the night would offer something for everyone’s tastes.
‘‘Every audience is different but I think that gives me faith to just keep going from town to town,’’ he said.
‘‘I just hope that people will like what I do, or get a laugh out of what any of us do.
‘‘At the end of the day we’re all just people and I know everyone’s different but at the same time if something’s funny, people will laugh at it.
‘‘And if they don’t laugh at something that’s truly funny then they’re probably a bit strange.’’
