Deadly Darwin Comedy: A New Hope

DEADLY DARWIN COMEDY returns to Brown’s Mart theatre this month with their new show, A New Hope. And the plot may seem a little familiar…

The year is 2020 and the world is in crisis due to the emergence of a new super bug. Strict isolation measures have caused mass hysteria, resulting in everyone buying enough toilet paper for their children and their children’s children. In a small corner of Australia, in a tiny rural town called Darwin, a new hope emerges.

Deadly Darwin Comedy was created in 2019 to showcase the comic talents of local Aboriginal comedians, dead keen to launch humour into their communities. Last May’s inaugural event was a huge success, and the group has only gone from strength to strength since.

Co-founder and comedian Richard Fejo says Deadly Darwin Comedy offers the chance to connect with the community in a new way.

“It’s been an amazing success and a chance for us to develop and explore new ways to express ourselves, and heal our people and communities through laughter.”

Grab a ticket and head to Brown’s Mart for what is sure to be one hilarious night of comedy, close to home.
