John Kearns

Double Take and Fade Away

Melbourne Town Hall - Portico Room

Back to back Edinburgh Best Newcomer and Edinburgh Comedy Award winner, four-time Chortle Award nominee and two-time Melbourne Comedy Award nominee John Kearns returns with his original, entrancing and off kilter take on the ordinary and the sublime.

Still a slave to dairy, the Gregorian calendar and Greenwich Mean Time, he is flesh and blood after all. A funny man, not for everyone of course, but remember this mustn’t be mistaken as an invite – rather a heads up. The show implores you to learn lessons from your ceiling and realise Fred Astaire actually knew very well what he was doing.

‘Possibly his finest show yet, a beautiful hour of soulful stand-up.’ ★★★★★ Time Out

'The best showcase of his greatness yet.’ ★★★★1/2 The Times

‘A unique act, exquisite but robust.’ ★★★★1/2 Chortle

‘Finds the poetry in the overlooked everyday’’ ★★★★1/2 Guardian
