Morning calico with dots of lama
Head to The Downstairs Lounge in The Grand Mercure Hotel on Swanston Street Melbourne to see 3 States of Comedy, Becky Steepe(QLD), Geoff Setty(WA) and Danny Stitson(VIC), play for title of state champion at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival. Book your tickets here
Danny Stitson, Becky Steepe & Geoff Setty are 3 States of Comedy
This is a great little 6:00 pm show to whet your appetite, with three top comedians for the price of one. Grab a cold beverage from The Downstairs Lounge bar and cheer on Becky, Geoff and Danny as they fight the good fight for their state.
Hailing from Bowen in Queensland, Becky tells us the sordid truth of growing up with German ancestry in the rockmelon capital of Australia. From 'slip, slop, slapping' sunscreen on her 'morning calico with dots of lama' complexion, Becky details the life and times of being a Single White Female (SWF) where the sun is cruel, dates are few, and Aunty Revenge begets Cat Lady and YouTube meditation.
Geoff Setty 'The 'Dark Prince of One Liners' will whip you into a frenzy with his smooth wit and deadpan comedy. Relax while Geoff transports you to the Ottoman Empire, through the 90's grunge scene, the exploitation of Star Wars figurines and eating passive aggressive Big Macs.
Get along and see 3 States of Comedy, stay after the show, meet the comedians, sip on a cold beverage in the comfy bar, and post your vote on the feedback wall.
The Downstairs Lounge is cosy and friendly and you can spend the whole night going room to room, seeing show after show. If you've have spare cash why not book a room and make a night or weekend of comedy, safe in the knowledge that your 5 star bed is just upstairs.
