Show Us Your Roots, comedy spectacular, Bankstown Sports
What do you get when you throw 9 stand-up comics from different cultures, beliefs and upbringings on stage with each other?
Two and a half hours of fun and frivolity, taking a tongue-in-cheek look at what it’s like for different cultures to grow up in Australia.
The show features comedians from Egypt, Sri Lanka, Lebanon, USA, Malta, Spain, China and Fiji, and is capped off with a feature set by Irish funny-man Jimeoin.
We asked Jimeoin what he likes most about doing these comedy spectaculars.
“Hanging out with a bunch of comics can often be good for a laugh. It’s funny, you often don’t get exposed to other people from different cultural backgrounds. Stand-up gives us a chance to look inside these people’s worlds and at the end of the day, you discover that on some level, we are all the same”.
He’s performing with a talented line-up of comics from around the world, who all bring something very different to the stage. And all he’s hoping for is a laugh during his set!
“Just one laugh… but a good laugh”.
