Join Joey on his global quest to achieve comedic fame
How do you decide who you should go see if you fancy going out for a night of comedy? With so many comedy nights around the city with so many familiar names on the bill, how do you guarantee your mirth?
Well, how about choosing someone from overseas? That's right, a foreigner gracing these shores with their presence. So often you'll see a list of DJs with their two character national abbreviation following their name, as though the international nature of the lineup is something that gives them appeal. Reminiscent of an athletics line-up, it shouldn't really make a difference, but it does.
Well, how about if I told you that a comedian all the way from the USA, the home of some of the greatest stand-up comedy in the world, was performing a stand-up show here in Brisbane? What if I told you he was from New York, a city that has arguably surpassed the original York? What if I told you this show was being recorded for a live comedy album? Admit it, you've already grabbed your car keys and I haven't even said when it is yet.
