Anthony Locascio – Pappou

27 July @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Anthony Locascio - Pappou

Anthony Locascio’s Pappou (grandfather) immigrated to Australia from Greece in the 1950s, ferried over to become the top goalkeeper in Australian soccer. This dream came to an abrupt end when Pappou’s fist had a chance encounter with a referree’s head. Being a man was different back then.

In 2024, his grandson’s dream of being a stand-up comedian hangs in the balance, as he contends with the challenges of a modern man – staying off the vapes, raising kittens and defeating the corruption of world football from the safety of a podcast microphone.

In his 2024 show, Australia’s king of post-ethnic comedy returns with a show juxtaposing these two men to determine whether Anthony is carrying on Pappou’s legacy by chasing his dream, or if he just should’ve become a doctor like his grandfather always wanted.

Anthony Locascio is one of Australian comedy’s rising stars. Blending sharp joke writing with musings on his ethnic background, Anthony is best known for his unique storytelling.

He completed back to back national tours in 2022 and 2023 with the highly successful ‘Don’t Call Me A Wog!’ and ‘Heart Of Darkness’.

These took him to the Adelaide Fringe, Melbourne International Comedy Festival, the Perth, Newcastle, Wollongong and Sydney Comedy Festivals, as well as indipendant shows in Brisbane and Canberra.

He was hand picked for the Perth and Sydney Comedy Festival Galas in 2021 & 2022.

“Anthony embodies the thinking man’s comedian, prepared to traverse the publicly taboo and unexplored recesses of the human psyche”
