One of the most exciting comedy acts to emerge from Ireland in recent years, Dead Cat Bounce arrive for their second ever Australian tour jetlagged, disorientated, but ready to rock. Expect smoke machines, leopard-print pants, screaming guitar solos, and everything from hip-hop slow jams to 80s stadium rock anthems.
Dead Cat Bounce toured the world in 2009; playing to packed houses at the Montreal Just for Laughs Festival, Edinburgh Festival Fringe, the Bulmers International Comedy Festival in Dublin and the Kilkenny Cat Laughs. They also found time to make their first TV show, airing on Ireland’s RTÉ in January 2009. Now Dead Cat Bounce bring their unique blend of all-original music and character comedy to The Comedy Store for ROCK N LOL.
Joining Dead Cat Bounce on the Comedy Store stage will be the fantastic Mr Dave Jory. Whilst there’s nothing musical about this cat, there’s something extremely funny about Dave Jory. He’ll be holding the night together as stage manager and MC for this massive night of musical comedy.
The tasty musical stylings of Genevieve Fricker will also be bringing you the giggles in this show that’s sure to have something for everyone.
Brace yourself for an unrelenting couple of hours of smash hit comedy!
