One of the most experienced comics from the international comedy merry-go-round has stayed here. It’s been a wild (mostly closed) ride.

About this event

Waiting. All his British friends and family have been. Waiting. Meanwhile Gordon has been playing hurry-up-and-wait in Australia walking other people's dogs. Often with the owners' permission.

How could globe-trotting UK comedy star Gordon Southern know when leaving Britain in early 2020 that it might be a bit longer than anticipated? Instead he found himself luckily stuck as a grateful stowaway in Australia rethinking and pivoting like so many of us have in the longest year ever recorded, finding that lust for stock rotation he thought he'd lost, finding that passion for teaching he never really had and making people believe in the magic of Father Christmas, of which there are (spoiler alert) more than one. It's a warm, human examination of the question so many MC's ask "what do you do?".

As seen on Up Late on ABC TV and as heard on ABC radio.
