Beat the winter blues this January by joining Classic Andy and friends to celebrate Australia Day!  26th January is a time to enjoy all the amazing people and things that we love about Australia.  So crack open a beer, throw another shrimp on the barbie and dust off your Kylie and Jason singles!

We’re delighted to host the fabulous Jinni Lyons Is An Only Child and comedy double-act Simon and Tom’s Mood Board.  Classic Andy will also be using audience suggestions to create unexpected characters and scenes in their own brand of long-form improv.

Jinni Lyons: Comical, lyrical, improvised theatre from an Only Child.  Come and watch her people the stage with myriad companions in a series of vignettes charting each character’s quirks and peccadilloes, dilemmas and dreams.

“Astonishing and hilarious” – Hideout Theatre, Austin, Texas

“Magical intimate character improv” – Bristol Improv Theatre

“An exemplary improviser…I have never seen anyone like her” – Mike McShane, Whose Line is it Anyway?

Simon and Tom’s Mood Board: Tom and Simon met onstage at the infamous clown school École Philippe Gaulier during a performance of the Pinter anti-war sketch “Precisely”. Since then they have been a double act performing comedy influenced by clown, sketch, improvisation and theatrical absurdism. Both Simon and Tom perform independently in their own right having appeared in theatre and international comedy festivals.
