Heath Franklin as you've never seen him before
You've probably seen Heath Franklin on shows like The Ronnie Johns Half Hour (Network 10), Spicks and Specks (ABC TV), Thank God You're Here (Channel 7), and in the recent ABC TV series Wednesday Night Fever. But you've never seen him like this. Having sold over 250,000 tickets around the world as 'Chopper', the ARIA and Logie-nominated Heath Franklin brings his first ever solo stand-up show, 'May I Borrow A Crisis', to this year's Melbourne International Comedy Festival.
In his new show Heath Franklin steps out from behind the shadow of the moustache for the first time, but when you've been doing comedy through sunglasses, fake tatts and a silly voice for eight years, how do you do comedy as yourself?
They say Comedy equals Tragedy plus Time. Sadly, for a comedian looking for great comic material Heath Franklin has made a lot of good choices in his life. With all his comedy friends winning awards for shows based on poor decisions, Heath is left wondering, where did it all go right? So he needs your tragedy donations and your crises to write the perfect comedy show. Bankrupt? Great. Arrested? Awesome. Break Up? Perfect! You probably weren't doing anything with them anyway.
Heath will be presenting his 'May I Borrow A Crisis' show at Melbourne's Trades Hall - The Front Room from 27th March to 20th April. Show times are Tuesday - Saturday 9.45pm and Sundays at 8.45pm.
