Episode Two

featuring the Søren Kierkegaard Jug Stompers


Excommunicated televangelist Neville Umbrellaman is back with another dose of enlightenment and reckless fear-mongering in the second instalment of his late-night broadcast for lonely people, featuring spiritual visions, romantic advice, insomniac callers and immaterial prize giveaways.

Guest performances by comedian Sabrina D’Angelo, Nick Sun, Nick Coyle and singer-songwriter Zeadala. With jug-band music from the Søren Kierkegaard Jug Stompers.


The line-up:

Nick Sun's comedic style has been described as dark, honest, intelligent and anarchic. His semi-improvisational stream-of-consciousness style combines confessional anecdotes and satirical social commentary. Combined with his unique, charismatic stage presence, Nick is a truly original, cliche-free comedian like no other.
