"Since I was in primary school, I would get up and do characters and sketch– it's really weird! People talk about what they're destined to, or what their instinct tells them to do, but when I was in grade three or so me and my mate would get up and do impressions of ads at the time. They actually weren't bad bits when I look back on it," he told me, while cupping a half full coffee, as he nestled comfortably in the left corner of my couch.

"So the title was just like 'okay this is an interesting title. It's funny, whatever,' and then throughout the whole year I've just been doing the bits that I've wanted. So now I've put it all together, there's really a theme of evolution. What the next step in evolution of human beings will be."
"I think any way of using the medium to be funny is fine, but I guess I just feel like more and more these days if people are paying 20 or 30 dollars to come and see you," Damien explained, "It's like I really want it to be something that is… I want it to be like art - revealing and make people question things, or make people feel uncomfortable, or make people feel like this is too much. I like all those kinds of energy in the show. So I guess it's driven by trying to put on a good show, or what I deem as like, high quality I suppose."
If you're not sure if Damien's style will be your cup of tea, why not take a few minutes to view a sample of last year's show?
