Never miss another 'Brendon Burns' show
Race Off: Brendon Burns, Craig Quatermaine
""Race Off" : Brendon Burns, Craig Quatermaine
From the directors of Brendon Burns' 2007 Edinburgh Award Winning show; So I Suppose This is Offensive Now, No-filter white Aussie Brendon Burns is teaming up with charming ball of rage Craig Quartermaine to form the first white and Aboriginal Australian double act in history...that's right: in history...ever.
Relax. They're not here to help.
Be warned, this is not some trite ebony and ivory sing-a-long. The story of how they came to perform together is sometimes excruciating, often uncomfortable, brutally honest but always very, very funny. As the two believe: for proper cathartic, heart-felt laughs, jokes must have a sting in their tail and have to hurt a little, on some level. But in doing so, the two have made something oddly beautiful.
Race Off is a show about personal accountability with a big heart that asks, "How can we ever combat bigotry if we never admit to it?”
In 27 years of performing all over the globe, Burns’ 2016 collaboration with Quartermaine was his best reviewed show ever. It is clear that Quartermaine is a much needed comic voice in a pretty damn barren landscape."
Info provided by the Event Organiser
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)
