A THOROUGHLY UNHELPFUL HISTORY OF AUSTRALIAN SPORT
Performing at: Melbourne International Comedy Festival and Sydney Comedy Festival
In 2017 he performed in three critically acclaimed stage shows; Dane Swan: In Conversation With Titus O’Reily at Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Titus O’Reily Returns at Sydney’s Comedy Store and Titus O’Reily: Insufficient Intent across the nation in his debut national stand-up tour. Now popular sports satirist Titus O’Reily is back with a brand new show A Thoroughly Unhelpful History Of Australian Sport, based upon his bestselling book of the same name, at the 2018 Melbourne International Comedy Festival.
From Don Bradman’s focus to Steven Bradbury’s heroic not falling over and the alarming number of footballers caught urinating in public - sport has shaped Australia’s sense of self. In his new show Titus (Channel 7, Nova 100, Herald Sun) explores the scandalous and bizarre history which has led to this nation’s great love affair with sport.
‘An hilarious array of one-liners.’ - The West Australian
‘The funniest man in sports comedy...this non-stop hour of hilarity will have you wiping tears of laughter, on the edge of your seat, opinion making and wetting your pants from start to finish.’ - Jamie Azzopardi
Part history, part social commentary and part the ravings of a madman, Titus examines: League vs Union and what your preference says about you as a person; why it’s the AFL’s fault that Victorians are so awful; how soccer is the biggest threat to Australia since Communism; how cricket is not boring; how horse racing is not just a way to launder your money; and the Olympics (or why Australia is only important every four years.)
Weaving humour and history into one hilarious yet surprisingly informative show, Titus helps us understand how sport is important - gloriously stupid, but important. With his appearances on Nova radio and Channel Seven’s AFL coverage Titus’ lightning quick, clever and hilarious insights on sport have earned him 190,000 Twitter followers and 55,000 Facebook followers. Don’t miss Titus O’Reilly as he brings his bestselling book to life live on stage at Melbourne Comedy Festival in March-April 2018!
