Local Comedians fiercely lock horns - Brisbane Powerhouse
The Multicultural Development Association - (MDA) was established in 1998 to provide support services to refugees and migrants and today is one of the leading settlement agencies. Families are provided with both emotional and practical support during their integration process.

MDA proudly presents a comedy debate as part of the Powerhouse Knockoff Comedy series during Queensland Cultural Diversity Week.



There is no grass left to eat where they live, so they must cross a river to get to a meadow on the other side of a stream in order to eat and survive. To do so, they must first cross a bridge, under which lives a fearsome troll who eats anyone who passes that way, and so the story continues...



The contentious issue of 'stopping the goats', to be addressed by local comedians, is perfectly characterised by MDA:

"Is stopping the goats a merciless and punitive threat to our diverse and bountiful wildlife? Or are the goats really alien invaders, intent on multiplying across our sovereign shores like the seemingly cuddly rabbit or the slippery European carp? Or is there a merciless troll lurking under the gang plank to Manus Island and Nauru, ready to jump even the most harmless Billy Goat Gruff looking for safe and verdant pastures? Are goats even capable of economic migration or are they innocent creatures worthy of protection?"

Join our local comedians as they lock horns over this pertinent topic of our time, and milk it for all it's worth!
