Get It Into Ya! | Tom Gleeson

Get It Into Ya! | Tom GleesonGet It Into Ya! is a solid, entertaining hour of stand up from television personality Tom Gleeson. It’s well-timed and executed observational humour with a good flow through and diverse topics that are light without being trite. From the social lives of married couples to the frustration of Melbourne’s endless roadworks, battery hens versus free range chooks and negotiating good deals on sofas, Gleeson is in command of his material from start to finish and even manages to weave both hecklers and other audience members into his shtick.

Gleeson is a tall, gangly guy, going bald – which means he’s a “dude” in his books. Kinda nerdy, kinda cute, he walks that line between daggy and cool. He uses it to best effect, with stories about a worrying melanoma on the back of his head, the disappointments of baldness and the humiliation of having to wear foundation make up on his noggin (his word, not mine) on national television.

There’s no dull patches in Gleeson’s stream of material and it’s not too offensive, but not sissy either.

In the hundreds of comedy festival offerings, Get It Into Ya! is a sound choice that won’t disappoint.

Do Not Go Gentle | Drill Hall Theatre & Everyman Theatre Company

There are few topics more challenging than death, and the inevitable journey toward this state of non-being. The journey, one might say, is fraught with difficulty as we see our loved ones deteriorate, diminish, dement and lose their way; something we all fear; after all, what will happen to us come the evolution?

No End of Blame | Sport for Jove

Putting the ink into think, Howard Barker’s No End of Blame is as powerful and poignant, perhaps even more so, today, as it was when written, nearly forty years ago.
