A new concept in comedy premieres to the general public this Thursday as Hey, That’s My Joke! are set to take the stage at the Wignacourt.
Over the summer, comedy nights at the Wignacourt became noteworthy events, and with Punch Fist Production’sHey, That’s My Joke! performing this Thursday, the tradition is set to continue into the winter. The troupe, made up of some of the best local talent, including Malcolm Galea, Philip Leone-Ganado, Joseph Zammit and Marie-Claire Pellegrini, will be premiering something completely new in comedy that hasn’t been seen or experienced anywhere before, apart from at their own closed-premier just a few weeks ago.
“Hey, That’s My Joke! is a quirky twist on stand-up comedy with added elements of improvisational comedy, and surprisingly, it works really, really well,’ says David Chircop, Creative Director at Punch Fist Productions. “Basically, what happens is this: comedians start by performing a short comedy set, then, the audience chooses who they want to perform whose set, and the comedians have to perform each other’s set. They won’t ask any questions, they will just have to do whatever the audience asks.
“That’s where all the hilarity and carnage begins, and I tell you it is a riot. It’s quite special how well these two genres of comedy have managed to blend together, and the Wignacourt just makes it that much better,” continues David.
“As a venue, the Wignacourt is quite special for us performers. It’s a new space for us to explore which is not only oozing with history and character, but it’s particularly versatile as well. No wonder it is building such an exquisite repertoire events on its calendar. We are truly excited to be among its ever-increasing number of acts and hope to be as special as the venue itself.”
Hey, That’s My Joke! will perform at the Wignacourt Wine Gardens on Thursday 24 October 2013 from 9pm onwards. Please call on 2749 4905 to book your table.
