The Man – stand-up comedy from the edge

“The Man is a modern jester who holds court in the park and reaches out to his fellow citizens by questioning everything,” says the unnamed comedian/actor behind The Man. Inspired by London's Speakers' Corner, The Man blends stand-up and theatre in the recreation of a bystander's memory as it replays in front of the audience.

The Man, Evolution Theatre, 75 Disraeli St, Friday, January 31, 7.30pm. Tickets $23 from eventfinda at https://tinyurl.com/yx6lyok5
