You can tell a lot about a country by its comedy…

In this new cabaret lecture, Dr Rob explores the intense, awkward, inspiring and all too often problematic history of Australian comedy. Dr Rob is joined by long time comedy partner, Elliot Summers, to present a whirlwind tour of the most famous Australian comedians and their acts over more than a hundred years. Jokes, songs and learning – just what everyone wants out of their comedy festival experience.

Written, designed, directed and performed by Rob Reid and Elliot Summers
