It is once again a great joy and privilege to attend shows at the Brisbane Comedy Festival 2019 for Scenestr magazine. I went for the first time last year to the 9th Brisbane Comedy Festival where I saw Tom Animated! from Impromafia, Rich Hall, Tom Gleeson’s Sure Thing, and Convince Me! Comedy Debates to review for Scenestr magazine.
First show was last Tuesday night to see Georgie Carroll who I am familiar with due to appearances on the entertaining television program Have You Been Paying Attention? My interest in seeing her though was due to her work as a nurse, as a former wardie I was interested in seeing a comedic slant on the work of hospital staff from someone who knows what they’re talking about.
We were back in the Brisbane Powerhouse which continues to grab my interest with its clever installations and lighting in a setting that evokes so much history. We saw Georgie perform in the Rooftop Terrace which was new since I’ve previously only gone to shows on the two bottom floors. It was a relatively simple room, similar to some others and about the right size for the crowd involved. Still always exciting to go somewhere new and I enjoyed the views.
Georgie was on stage as we entered and made small talk with the crowd in the front. That’s kind of amazing to be that comfortable and ready to go with your audience before the show.
