VERY cheap laughs this comedy festival with CS comedian. Marcus Ryan - Home & Away
Posted March 20th, 2010 - 4:07 am by from Wonthaggi, Australia (Permalink)
Hi gang!

I'm a dedicated CS'er and have lived in the UK for several years, so please don't take this as spam! I normally post on the Edinburgh site at fringe time and get a great response from surfers who come to the shows, but now I'm home I thought I'd let you know I've got a show on at this years comedy festival.

I'm a professional comedian and addicted backpacker.

If you're a traveller or local, my show is all about travels overseas, and I love the international audiences. More countries the better! so it's quite fitting for the couchsuring community. I'd love the support from you guys. Something alot don't know is we put all our own money into putting on these shows, hiring venues, PR, advertising, posters, accom, etc etc so if you want to see a show this year PLEASE go see some up and comers!! Get behind them.

I've got Preview shows starting next weds 24th and on the 27th I'm doing a special show in the dark for Earthhour!
The show will run until 17th April so check out the details below. ta

(Also, you can get 25% discount on some meals at the venue with a printed ticket if you get it online)

Hope to see some of you there, maybe organise group tickets for a discount. It's far cheaper than most gigs on during the comedy festival and I have guests on too.

Cheers everyone! Please say hi afterwards!

Marcus x

Gday Folks,
It's been a long time coming. I've lived and travelled and gigged all over the world and now I'm home, it's good to be back!
Please Please PLEASE! Come on down and check out the show, I'd love the support, and if you've met me somewhere on the travels and know people that will be in Melbourne, send this invite along to them. Thank you all x

Appearing at the 2010 Melbourne International Comedy Festival.
Marcus Ryan from Wonthaggi, for 17 nights only. The first time in 5 years performing on home soil. Get behind him, get to Melbourne, get the jokes!

After several years of globetrotting, the UK-based Aussie lad is back with tidbits and tales from his world adventures.

Join the former RAW Comedy runner-up (2003) and Comedy Zone (2004) as he hosts one or two different top class international guests each night!

On the UK/International/Oz circuits Marcus has gigged with some brilliant names... Jim Gaffigan, Kevin Foxx, Tom Stade, Ardal O'Hanlan, Reginald D Hunter, Frankie Boyle, Dave Gorman, Steve Hughes, Brendon Burns, Demetri Martin, Arj Barker, Omid Djalili, Stewart Lee, Phil Nichol, Lenny Henry, Rich Hall, Gina Yashire, Eddie Ifft, Sarah Millican, Wil Anderson, Dave Hughes, Jimeon to name a few... too many!

Marcus Ryan has lived and toured all over the world, travelled to over 30 countries and gigged in 10 of them. Even performing in Spanish!
This laid back boy from Wonthaggi brings you stories from home and away, but no TV soap stars!

In his first Melbourne appearance in 5 years he is thrilled to be back home. Don't miss the chance to see him while he's in town!

17 shows only!
