Book Now to Catch Lindsay Live on Stage.

You know you're in for a good comedy show when even the title and posters are funny. Lindsay Webb's World's Greatest Exaggerator is set to be even more hilarious. Webb is no stranger to taking it to the extreme having once held the record for longest ever comedy show by an individual at over 38 hours. It's a record he set right here in Brisbane at the cinemas in GoMA. This year's show promises to be shorter and will be in another venue – Fortitude Valley's Bloodhound Bar – on August 11 and 12.

World's Funniest Poster!

Lindsay and I had the world's shortest chat about his show in which he's given the world's quickest answers to my questions…

KM: What made you go into comedy?

LW: Was acting and working at Theatre Comedy Restaurant. Was offered an opportunity to have a go. Got hooked.

KM: How many gigs have you done in the last year?

LW: 280 approx

KM: Tell us about your history with exaggeration…

LW: I have been doing it every minute for 85yrs.

KM: Are you the world's greatest at anything else?

LW: Answering quick surveys

KM: What's your comedy style?

LW: Probably the best observational jokes ever.

KM: Which comics have influenced you or do you look up to?

LW: Jimeoin, Wil Anderson, Justin Hamilton, Greg Fleet, Tom Gleeson

KM: Anything else you want to tell readers about your show?

LW: It's the best show ever written and its performed by the best joke maker of the 22nd Century.

Funniest Man Alive is Also World's Greatest Exaggerator.

Lindsay is one of those comedians who has you laughing from start to finish and leaving a venue with a sore face. His Podcast What's Your Name What Do You Do? has been climbing the charts on iTunes. He was the first ever host of LYPO (Laugh Your Pants Off) Gala at Star City Casino in Sydney with an all star cast, including Lawrence Mooney, Mikey Robins, Sammy J and Randy and more. He's also done Q&A (ABC) warm up duties, worked as a radio host for several different stations in Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast and toured all over Australia and worldwide.

Lindsay's show World's Greatest Exaggerator is being performed as part of the Bris Funny Fest. He launched this show at Adelaide Fringe Fest to sold out crowds and five-million star reviews. You can keep up with all his dates and latest news about the funniest man in the world ever at his website… or should that be Webbsite?
