Canberra’s quirkiest and best-loved bookshop, Beyond Q Books, Bar & Cafe in Weston Creek hosts Beyond Comedy. This month’s show is hosted by Goulburn’s only (as far as we know) professional juggler/stand up comedian, Idris Stanton and features Canberra/ Wee Jasper favourite Emo Parsonson and some of Canberra’s funniest comedians and spots by first timers. The venue is BYO, but sells coffee tea and treats.
Emo Parsonson is an ex-shearing comedy maverick and father of three hailing from Wee Jasper. Is there anybody else in the world who can say that? No. Emo decided to give stand-up comedy a go after his shearing career didn’t work out and he hasn’t looked back, or has a bad back. He can never remember which.
Emo brings laughs thick and fast and is one of the most likeable comics performing today. His clean material and sharp observations make a night out with Emo a real joy. From tales of growing up on a farm to parenting teenagers Emo is sure to have you in stitches.
A veteran of the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Emo has launched and promoted live comedy shows throughout regional NSW as part of a self-guided plan to bring comedy to the bush. This has resulted in comedy being brought to towns such as Wagga Wagga, Goulburn, Yass, Cootamundra, Bateman’s Bay and Wee Jasper. The Wee Jasper show was delivered off the back of truck parked in the local pubs beer garden.
