Where: EVAN Theatre, Panthers

Australia’s MOST WANTED comedian Heath Franklin's Chopper is bringing his brand new show 'Bogan Jesus' to Penrith for one night only in March 2018. In the beginning, God created the moustache… and it was good. Then he took the next 6 days off, because once you’ve nailed it, treat yourself to a lie-down. The world has had religion ever since God was in nappies, and what have we got to show for it: wars, terrorist attacks, and Christian rock. It’s time religion took a hard look at itself, so Chopper is starting his own one, in his own image, and giving hell to the almighty. There’s a new ‘mo-ssiah’ for a new age and he’s holier than Oscar Pistorius’ bathroom door. Thou shalt harden up and become a Chopostle! So gather round, and be healed by Bogan Jesus!

Intelligence – the next frontier. We have always been fascinated by the idea of non-human minds. From the Golem; the Jewish myth of a clay man animated by the name of God, to Frankenstein’s monster, to the prospect of superhuman artificial intelligence; computers who will think on a global scale and could threaten civilisation. We strive to create minds and fear what we might create. Imagine an Artificial Intelligence: a brilliant but naïve mind, newly created. Now imagine that machine-mind is left to learn about our world by watching a comedy show. Alice Fraser explains trigger warnings, pornography and cultural hypocrisy to a non-human intelligence. After globally critically acclaimed seasons and sold out shows at Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Sydney Comedy Festival, Edinburgh Fringe Alice is back with another silly, funny, and smart show that explores what it is to be human.

Australia's Crown Prince of Comedy, Joel Creasey, has whored himself across Australian TV screens from comedy galas, panel shows, celebrity interviews and even the depths of the African jungle. He is the protégé of the late great Joan Rivers, and this past year alone presided over commentary duties at Eurovision, released his first memoir, won GQ Comedian of the Year, made his debut in a TV drama. Oh... and played a slut on Neighbours. So you better believe he is ready to rip back the curtain and fill you in on all the juicy behind the scenes action. Strap yourselves in for a night with this blonde bombshell as he slices, dices, sasses and smashes celebrities, pop culture and himself. As Joel's rule always stands... anyone not in the room... is a target!
