This event is a part of the 2011 Melbourne International Comedy Festival.
Gold Level Award Winner at the 2010 California Film Awards, Lord James [James Rose] brings his Greatest Shits Tour to town. Prepare yourself for the most shocking and offensive stand up comedy routine to hit Australian shores. www.thelordjames.com
After shocking the room at the 2008 Raw comedy competition and the following week being told to cut back by a comedy club in Melbourne, Lord James took his comedy underground to hone is performance, murdering audiences in the process. He resurfaced in comedy clubs in 2009/10 LA and the UK, leaving audiences so entertained that they forgot they were originally so offended.
As Lord James’s online credentials began to rise, he was recently banned from you tube for offensive material. Along with offensive material, he specialises in a wardrobe that would leave Elton John simultaneously jealous and offended. After the Melbourne comedy festival James will continue the tour across Europe and USA.
Accompanying Lord James, will include Fanny Hanusin and Gabrielle Zlotin.
Fanny Hanusin is an Indonesian comic and singer. Starting out as an actor, she received 2003 Green Room Award for her performance in Hospital of the Lost Coin and The Vanishing Box.
She is most well known as Amy Lee, the biggest nerd in Bogan Pride, a quirky upbeat musical comedy on SBS. Other highlights include performing in Chris Lilley’s Indigeridoo (2006 Logies Award) and being part of Prank Patrol, a children’s television series for ABC3.
Gabrielle Zlotin is an up and coming stand up comedienne whose brutally honest female Jewish humour will leave any audience shocked.
