Mark Swivel: Dad. Joke. Comedy at Laycock St. Thurs 29 June.


This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Comedy. Evidence based musings on parenting, politics and pools!

Like, what on earth does a Near Dead White Male say to his Son, the Triumph of Beard Oil? This is a show for all mums and dads and their contemptuous kids! Swiv is preparing a speech for his son’s 21st … And struggling. Join Swiv as he tries and almost certainly fails to man up as a dad. You’ll love his musings on slippery dips, choc tops, Molly and sex in the sand dunes.

A rousing, ridiculous how-not-to-guide on parenting, politics and pools in our arguably-a-bit-mad world. Simone Whetton, 702 ABC Radio called it “vulnerable, excoriating and hilarious in one loveable mixture!”. Phillip Adams gave his last show, ‘How Deep Is Your Love?’ a much-coveted a koala stamp. Swiv may be the only performer to go on both Studio 10 with Ita and Radio National’s Late Night Live.

In Dad. Joke. Swiv answers every question young folk can ask from ‘should men wee sitting down?’ to ‘honestly, what are we to do about the planet in these post-truth, Trumped up times?’

Touring 2017. Sydney. Brisbane.  Melbourne. Canberra. Newcastle.  Mullum. Gosford. And beyond.

http://www.swiv.com.au/dad-joke-trailer

Dad. Joke. is world-changing wittering, brilliant banter. Warning: the show contains one dad joke per performance (mercifully brief). A longer look: https://youtu.be/az-fJZMoUYk.

Dad. Joke. has done Melbourne Comedy Festival, Sydney (Seymour Centre, Factory, Bondi Pavilion), Brisbane (Judith Wright Centre), Canberra (The Street) and Beyond!
