You will be laughing - GUARANTEED
Dinosaurs and green Speedos feature in the comedy of Andy Thompson. His August 2018 show, as part of the Brisbane Funny Fest, brought his storytelling and observational comedy to the fore.

The hour-long comedy show had the audience in fits of laughter from the off with his 'true life' encounter on a Brisbane bus with an Asian lady who misunderstood his gesture of 'would you like a seat'.

He recounts with some fondness and hilarity his childhood from break dancing in the USA and the crazy advice and antics of his parents, but as a parent himself, is willing to pass on to his children. They provide ample fodder with his six-year old dubbed 'Servant of Satan'.

Andy is self-deprecating on his baldness and mid-forties figure and brings this to the fore with jokes about donning green Speedos in front of his sons.

The Brisbane audience loved it – perhaps recalling their own experiences. Andy is a great storyteller and has a keen eye on observational humour from the everyday. His humour is not offensive with just a smattering of blue language at the appropriate moments.

He is an ABC Brisbane Radio regular and a blogger on his Facebook page. Keep an eye out for future performances and you will be entertained.

The Brisbane Funny Fest runs until August 26th.
