They're back! (Like a boomerang). After 100% sold-out shows at Fringe World (Perth), Darwin Festival and the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, two of Australia's funniest first-nationers Matt Ford (glorious cynic) and Dane Simpson (hilarious Dad jokes) return with a gut-busting new hour of stand-up. As seen on the Melbourne Comedy Festival Gala, Comedy Up Late, Utopia and Have You Been Paying Attention? Hot off the back of touring Australia, these two are putting the ‘rad’ into traditional. Get some culture into ya, ‘Straya.
"What a cracking show! Dane Simpson and Matt Ford have distinctive styles and a touch of the Holy Grail in comedy: chemistry." ★★★★ Fringefeed, 2019

Review by Paul McLeod
What a cracking show! Dane Simpson and Matt Ford have distinctive styles and a touch of the Holy Grail in comedy: chemistry.
Dane Simpson mines his family for LOLs in a way that has the audience cheering their quirks and unlikely triumphs. Matt Ford shows glimpses of heart through mostly dry delivery of dating fails and deeper dilemmas.
Both performers claim ‘odd one out’ status in their families, enough to establish the comic perspective. But there is no distancing from their Aboriginal heritage. Actually, there is no distancing from anyone. They are relatable and likeable to a mixed crowd, which is the clever key to the whole thing. Pride in culture, bridges in every direction.
They each deliver a hilarious solo set before joining forces for one of the silliest and most amusing finales going.
The audience left uplifted, still laughing and queuing to shake the hands of two definite emerging stars in Australian comedy.
