Daniel Connell: Piece of Piss, Underbelly Bristo Square (Venue 302) * * *
This soft-spoken rural Aussie has stories about fruit bats as big as foxes, horrible runaway horses, scary birds and deadly spiders.
Connell has an easy charm and brings a real flavour of the Australian bush into the room. This isn’t hipster Australia – it’s a world where men are men, kids are cheeky little larrikins and people love to burn stuff in the backyard.
It is an enjoyable hour with a refreshingly outdoorsy feel and you’ll learn some potentially very useful facts about what to do when magpies attack.
Until 25 August.
