L-R Stav and Kat Davidson


How would you feel if your partner got up on stage and did a stand up comedy routine about your relationship? Terrifying thought, right? But that's exactly what Brisbane comedians and radio personalities Kat Davidson (6.12 ABC) and Stav Davidson (Hit 105) have in mind for their Wonderland Festival show He Said/She Said playing at Brisbane Powerhouse from Thursday the 10th to Saturday the 12th of December.

"It's basically me and my wife, Katrina Davidson," says Stav, "Our life from each other's viewpoint, our big moments in our life like our wedding, our proposal from each other's point of view because we were both there!"

Kat adds, "We'll tell some of the same points in time and tell some different stories as well."


Check out my video interview with Kat and Stav

The duo started on the stand up scene before they met, Stav having been the typical class clown, and Kat coming to it via acting. I asked them to describe each other's comedy styles.

Stav says of Kat's style, "It's very narrative, very long-form, very storytelling, takes you on a 'journey' for lack of a better word."

"Stav is a pun master more than I," Kat reveals, "I'm more of a narrative comic, so he is very good at the pithy one liners."

Both comics have enjoyed healthy careers here in Brisbane and further afield. In fact, it was fifteen years ago, after an extended stay in Canada where Kat had a run of successful comedy gigs, that she returned home to Brisbane and was treated to a welcome home party that would change their lives forever.

"It was my returning home from Canada party and my friends said 'There's a boy coming to this party and you'll think he's hot' and I said 'Whatever'."

The couple were instantly attracted to each other and have been together ever since, this year celebrating fifteen years together, ten of those as a married couple. After that long, they're sure to have accumulated a lot of dirt on each other, but the way they laugh and joke about the show's potential to split them up, the more confident one feels that it's only going to make them stronger.

Whether you're married, divorced, or single, everyone's sure to find something relatable in He Said/She Said – after all, we all love to love. There are only a few shows running, so grab your tickets now for what's sure to be a fascinating insight into how a couple's perception of the same events can differ and what it's like to be in love with a comedian.
