ED2012 Comedy Review: Heath Franklin’s Chopper In A Hard Bastard’s Guide To Life (Heath Franklin’s Chopper / Underbelly Productions)

By | Published on Saturday 18 August 2012

When a comedian walks on-stage with joggers on and a beer in hand, you know it’s going to be a relaxed show. He does swear a lot, but it’s all part of the character’s Australian charm and honest style. I love nothing more than watching someone incredibly funny doing observational jokes about the things I personally hate, and Chopper absolutely nailed this. From the second he comes on stage the audience is fully involved, even the back row, and there is absolutely no escaping from being dragged on to stage, even if you’re hiding in the darkest corner of the room. He even continues telling jokes when he’s off-stage and the show has finished – that’s commitment.

Underbelly Bristo Square, 1-19 Aug, 8.50pm.
