Lose weight in your sleep! Build muscle while sitting on the couch! Tone and sculpt as you eat.
A former fat kid, Harley Breen is feeling the burn of the pressures of body image, beauty and TV bullshit. Conventionally seen as a feminine concern, Harley wants to acknowledge that cynical, ego-destroying marketing targets everyone without discrimination, and that men can cry-eat ice cream on Saturday nights, too.
It’s a high energy ride from an award winning comedy raconteur. Harley mixes unembarrassed personal stories with distinctively independent social criticism to present a hilarious, refreshing hour of comedy that’s both laugh out loud and thoughtful.
‘It’s a show that has a bit of heart and bit of pantomime ... it’s a seamless performance which builds up, quite literally to a nicely rounded finale… the man is truly funny!’ Herald Sun
‘While Breen might not be able to cut it as a tradesman he has certainly lovingly crafted a comedy show worthy of attention’ Chortle
‘Some of the best belly laughs I've had so far’ Australian Comedy Review
Harley Breen is one of Australia’s most natural comic talents, whose unique flair for storytelling and screwy charisma will be on show throughout 2012-2013 as he tours nationally with two different solo shows, The Kingswood and I, and I Heart Bunnings (which debuted at the Brisbane Comedy Festival last year, and went on to win the Piece of Wood Award in Melbourne). Kingswood will also be released on DVD in April 2012.
‘Breen’s damn good company with an irresistible stage presence.’ Chortle
