Last show was a total sell out, get in quick to see one of our favourites – Michael Workman answers the question “Can Goths be funny?” The answer is yes, but who asked that question remains a mystery. It was probably the wind. Actually, I’m a little scared.
Michael has achieved things. In his first six months as a comedian he had already won the national Raw Comedy competition and been flown to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival to perform. If you think that’s good you should have seen the shoes he bought while he was there.
Michael then toured the country performing at comedy clubs to packed houses, honing the “skills” he needs to do his “job”. Upon his return to the Melbourne International Comedy Festival his 2011 show, “Humans are Beautiful” won the coveted ‘Best New Comer’ Award, putting him on the comedy map. The rave reviews and industry praise, paved the way to sell out seasons in Sydney and Perth.
Workman continues producing surreal and hilarious comedy. He is defined by his clever and often absurd humour, which has set him apart from his contemporaries. His 2012 melbourne comedy festival recieved ★★★★ – Herald Sun
“People need to go and see Michael Workman” The Pun
“His attitude, and his thoughtful imagery, sticks with you long after you’ve left the venue. Impressive stuff, indeed.” Chortle
“Must see territory” Timeout Melbourne.
“Workman is clearly a precociously talented comic” Timeout Sydney
“Equal parts brilliant and bizarre, Michael is one of the most original voices on the scene in years. If Nick Cave did stand-up it would look like this.” Wil Anderson
