Aunty Donna are touring around Australia with their first live theatre show in three years so if you want to see some kooky absurdist sketches in the flesh, you know where to go.
Titled ‘The Magical Dead Cat Tour’, the comedy trio – Mark Samual Bonanno, Broden Kelly and Zachary Ruane – are clearly keen to capitalise on their biggest year yet.
2020 saw the debut of their critically acclaimed Netflix series Aunty Donna’s Big Ol’ House Of Fun, which was executive produced by The Office and The Hangover star Ed Helms and Scott Aukerman, the co-creator of Between Two Ferns – that’s some comedy chops right there. The six-part series took their unique brand of humour to the rest of the world and the response was overwhelmingly strong.
The trio shared a suitably weird statement to promote the upcoming tour: “When the Magical Dead Cat demanded we participate in this incredible tour of Australia, a tour showcasing brand new hilarious comedy and some fan favourite bits from our recent world-shaking Netflix series, we were initially hesitant,” Aunty Donna said.
It seemed we would provide the bulk of the entertainment whilst the Magical Dead Cat would merely bring some coughed up fur balls! We raised our concerns with the Magical Dead Cat and it offered to sweeten the deal by ending each show with a special surprise web slinging guest whose name rhymes with Glider Man. Desperate to meet this special surprise guest, we immediately said yes.”
Tickets go on sale tomorrow, June 17th, and can be purchased here.
