Are they here yet?
No, but they will be on Friday.
Five Brisbane comics are heading our way, that is, if they don’t get lost on the way.
Five emerging Brisbane comics (including one possible hostage) will arrive at in Goondiwindi on Friday where they will appear at The Goondiwindi Golf Club where they will test their jokes on the locals with a stand-up comedy “gala”.
The four women (Nicchia Schutt, Lauren Randall, Simone Eclair and Jasmine Fairbairn) have refined their performances during the August Bris Funny Fest while the lone bloke, Andrew Dawson, has been dragged along for gender equity.
“The comedy tour is about getting frocked up and having a laugh with mates,” comedian Nicchia Schutt said.
“The show is staged as a glamourous evening and starts with warm up ‘comedy encounters’ before settling into the traditional tarnished revelations of stand-up comedy.”
“Are We There Yet?” is the concept of Nicchia Schutt who by day is the Eastern Australian Manager for Act (Acting Consulting Training) who use industrial theatre to influence workplace culture.
The group of comics will depart Brisbane and make their way to each town negotiating kangaroos, intermittent phone coverage and coffee withdrawals.
“The idea came to me on an Easter road trip to Longreach.
“I had so many friends and family interested in my comedy and lamenting that they didn't get any variety. I grew up at The Gums and as a kid I always wanted comedy to get to our part of the world.
“Even living 20 years in Toowoomba I didn't get to see enough comedy shows.
“In Brisbane you can see a variety of comedians every night of the week and I don't think they appreciate how lucky they are.
“So I called up the four funniest emerging comics I know and asked them if they were prepared to spend way too much money to do a rural tour.
“Every single one of them jumped at the chance, even though they don't even know where all the places are.”
