If you like your comedy on the streets rather than the traditional brick wall/spot light configuration then you are in luck. 2013 – When We Were Idiots presents a quasi- retrospective comedic walking tour of Old Melbourne Town as it appears 2013….if that sounds odd than you’ve already taken your first step into this self-reflexive time bending safari.
Presented as part of the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, this unique performance is designed as a guided tour of the recently unearthed historical site that is the city of Melbourne. Travellers are invited to observe the customs of society and explore the odd social paradigm of Melbourne circa 2013 .
The tour is hosted by performer Xavier Toby and Micah D Higbed and aims to satirically examine the eccentricities of our day to day lives, the ill-informed stance of our current government on key issues and many other amazing historical observations of the silly things people do in 2013.
The experience promises to feature keen commentary from “social experts”, a surprise busker and even an appearance by a penguin. 2013 never seemed so real!
Due to popular demand (from the past and future) extra performances of 2013 – When We Were Idiots have been added. Check comedyfestival.com.au for details.
