I was lucky enough to get to review some shows I wanted to see at the Brisbane Comedy Festival for Scenestr magazine. In addition to the new show Animated! from Impromafia I was able to go along to see Rich Hall perform at the Brisbane Powerhouse This is a man whom I have watched perform on television over the years and always enjoyed. The name may not be instantly recognisable but that face and voice are and he has had quite a long and successful career. His latest show saw him in fine form and you can read more of my thoughts here

Produced by Eyeball Media Enterprises Scenestr. is an online national magazine with local offices around Australia. Celebrating 25 years in 2018 of publishing history they’ve excelled at moving into the digital realm but they remain at heart from the streets. They still publish magazines in print for Perth, Adelaide, Sydney and Brisbane every month. If you’re into music they’re a great read but they do cover all of the arts including festivals, stand-up comics, fashion, theatre and film. I feel very fortunate to get to write for them.

  1. Good review, Lloyd, and summed Rich up very well. Unfortunately, he has been overused on TV here. He is a panelist on satire shows and such, as well as being on comedy reviews, making documentaries about America, and of course his stand-up concerts. To be honest, I have grown more than a bit tired of seeing him. 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. That’s quite alright Pete, each to their own and thank you. He’s done a fair whack of TV here too but I quite enjoyed the show. Stand-ups tend to be edgier when on stage. I found out doing research on him that he was a writer on the early morning talk show David Letterman did in the early 80s.
