Melbourne Fringe Focus: Damien Power

14 September 2015 | 2:12 pm | Artist Submission

Describe your show in a tweet: Existential, philosophical, sociological, award-winning criticisms and analysis of capitalism and mental health plus dick jokes.

Why did you decide to do Fringe 2015? I wanted to run my show again from this year so people who didn't get a chance to see it during the Melbourne International Comedy Festival could come to see it. It's a great show, I'm very happy with it.

Tell us a bit about the creative team working on the project: This is a solo show I devised through a year or more of continually gigging and writing. But I also work closely with the producers of the show from Token Artists that are very experienced at bringing these ideas to life. That team primarily consists of Rowan Smith and Kathleen McCarthy but also many other people who help with management (Helen Townshend), digital media (Natalie Bell), and publicity (Lana Matafonov). All wonderful people that work really hard and are very professional.

In a fantasy world, who would you be the love child of and why? Marie Curie (she developed ways to separate radium from radiation leading to many current practices, including chemotherapy) and Richard Pryor. Because science and comedy. All bases covered.
