Race Off: Brendon Burns, Craig Quartermaine
Edinburgh award winner 2007, Brendon Burns and raw comedy finalist and NITV journalist, Craig Quartermaine bring their uncompromising, critically acclaimed show to Chapter.
Addressing black/white relations in Australian comedy has always been a no go, unless of course you count Kevin bloody Wilson. And that just seems to entail finding words that rhyme with habbo and noon, if you catch our drift.
Burns and Quartermaine have set their sights way higher, perhaps higher than anyone ever has. In a post -Trump, post Brexit era needs to have a nuanced intelligent conversation beyond, “everything’s racist” and “racism doesn’t exist”. They have some ideas on how this might be achieved and want to share them in this funny, punchy yet not preachy show.
Race Off is a show about personal accountability with a massive sting in it’s tail. As Burns and Quartermaine address some very uncomfortable home truths, hilariously and unapologetically. That poses, if we can’t admit to bigotry how can we ever combat it?
Noisy, manic and in-your-face comedian from Australia. This foul-mouthed antipodean is known as a masterly exponent of his art, intelligent and hilarious, railing against bigotry without preaching and taking the audience to the edge of their belief systems with his full on comedy routine. Brendon has appeared on The 11 O'clock Show and The Stand Up Show.
'The most jaw-droppingly awkward, painful, yet ultimately rewarding piece of stand-up we've ever seen' (Time Out)
