GARRY STARR: GREECE LIGHTNING AT THE BRISBANE COMEDY FESTIVAL
THE POWERHOUSE | NEW FARM
10 – 14 May, 7pm & 15 May, 6pm.
An overzealous idiot attempts to perform all of Greek Mythology in less than 60 minutes in order to save his Hellenic homeland from economic ruin.
Never before has Medusa been looser, Achilles more sillies, or Uranus so heinous.
Having single handedly saved the performing arts in 2018 with his multi-award-winning debut show, comic wunderkind Garry Starr returns with another anarchic masterclass not to be mythed.
Damien Warren-Smith grew up in the sleepy snowy mountains town of Cooma before studying at Actors Centre Australia. Upon graduation he moved to London where he spent more than a decade working as a theatre actor as well as TV appearances in Love My Way (FOXTEL), Law & Order: UK (TV) & The Persuasionists (BBC). In 2013 he retrained as a clown at École Philippe Gaulier in Paris before creating internationally-renowned clown collective The Plague of iDiots. When the pandemic struck Damien was playing a lead role in the Atomic Saloon Show at The Venetian in Las Vegas.

★★★★★ The Guardian (UK)
An uproariously funny hour….Undoubtedly one of the most fun shows at this year’s festival
★★★★ The Scotsman
An anarchic play-date with a six-foot-two toddler with a mop of fuzzy hair, no inhibitions and far too much raspberry cordial on board. It’s an exhilarating feeling.
★★★★★ GLAM Adelaide
