Deadly Funny








Whitefellas take note – Indigenous comedy is on the rise.

Proving his ‘mob’ does indeed have a funny bone, Kevin Kropinyeri is determined to crack the mainstream and teach white (and black) audiences a thing or two in the process.

The Loose Five








With seamless banter, chilled out guests and ample lol’age, ‘The Loose Five’ is one pod pod* worth dedicating a Saturday arvo (post-Streetcast) listening to.

Dark Humour







Dark, brooding Goths aren’t usually associated with comedy, but Michael Workman says otherwise.

A self-confessed Goth since he was 18, Michael has only been doing stand-up for four years but his absurd, surreal views is proving that Gothic humour can indeed be funny.

Tom Angley caught up with Michael earlier this week, and asked him why his comedy doesn’t just appeal to those with a love of all things black…

Well hundreds of people have been given the opportunity to do so; young and old, from all walks of life.
