BESPOKEN WORD Storytelling & Comedy Soirée

Special Guests: Comedians Peter Berner & Rob Carlton plus writer performers Nick Healey and Irvine Gregory

John Knowles and Kate Iselin bring together Sydney's most interesting and exciting comedians, writers, entertainers and celebrity mates for an evening of storytelling!

The first half of the evening, hosted by Kate Iselin, sees our guests telling short, pre-written stories on a specific theme that the audience will later vote on to see who takes home the mystery prize.

The second half of the evening, hosted by John Knowles is a live episode of his successful Comedy Festival show and ABC702 Radio Afternnoon segment 'I Can Top That!'. John and three guests take the stage to tell completely true yet totally unprepared stories inspired by topic suggestions from the audience.

The stories told at Bespoken word can be shocking, others embarrassing, insightful, sweet or just plain hilarious. It's a smorgasbord of real life adventures and raw revelations with an emphasis on vulnerability, confession and laughter. Staged at the cosy Petersham Bowling Club, known for its welcoming community and artsy offerings, Bespoken Word aims to create a friendly modern version of traditional parlour entertainment.
