Dane Simpson - Aborigi-LOL (SOTG 2018)
1 Aug - 31 Oct 2018
Wagga comedian Dane Simpson was the breakout star of the 2016 Aboriginal Comedy Allstars, cracking up the countryside in 55 destinations over 4 months, amidst selling out shows at the Melbourne Comedy Festival.
In Aborigi-LOL Dane hits the road again with his muso mate, Dane Kennedy. Dane (Kennedy) boasts influences such as Ben Harper and Sam Cooke, and has appeared on The X Factor as well as gigging solidly in the Riverina region.
Dane (Simpson) introduces Dane (Kennedy) to the stage at the start of the show with a short, friendly, informal acoustic set. After the break Dane (Simpson) returns with a winning headline set of shamelessly goofy dad jokes, picaresque tall tales and charismatic, observational yarns. His mate Dane (Kennedy) rejoins him at the end of the set for a song and a bit of a jam with his guitar and Dane (Simpson's) didgeridoo.
It's a highly engaging, highly approachable variety night for two sparkling, emerging Indigenous talents.
