Festivals allow us to be idiots in a socially acceptable environment. So it is with great delight that I can announce tickets to our idiocy are now available! Bring on MICF ’15
The Melbourne Comedy Festival is almost upon us once again. And while Dan (the very short one) is still in the United States entering church bake-offs, Simon (the moderately tall one), will be flying solo for MICF ’14.
His show is called The Earth is Flat. It’s a one man narrative show, where that bloody show-off talks to himself in silly voices for 50 minutes. But what’s it about? Here’s the spiel:
One man. Many characters. One epic tale…A medieval cardinal hatches a dastardly plot to convince humanity the Earth is flat. The key to his plan: Clive Palmer. Only the janitor at the Melbourne Museum stands in their way. A story of power, redemption and a big drill. This is Siberian Husky’s Simon Godfrey weaves together a host of characters into a tapestry of absurdity.
Hmm, intriguing! Hope to see y’all there.
“energetic, satirical and hilarious…truly a must see”

This Is Siberian Husky get the hydraulics pumping in their latest sketch comedy meets twisted narrative tale – THE MISERY FACTORY, an industrially absurd voyage set in an outlandish, dystopian realm where unhappiness and disaster come packaged and sold neatly shrink-wrapped.
The Misery Factory took out the Adelaide Fringe Festival Weekly Award for comedy in week 4!
Also taking out the week 4 honours in comedy were Paul Foot and Wolf Creek the Musical.
A big thank you to Adelaide Fringe Festival! We had a blast and were very honoured to receive an award. Now, on to Melbourne!

The Melbourne International Comedy Festival has come to an end and I, for one, blame Einstein. I think we can all agree there is no need to qualify that statement.
Thanks to all who braved the sweat and equine dangers to see This is Siberian Husky’s Boneshaker. As promised, it was a hell of a ride. The show was named in the Herald Sun’s top five shows to see during the festival and to top it all off, This is Siberian Husky performed at the Moosehead Benefit on closing night.
Boneshaker was produced with assistance from the Moosehead Awards and the Comedy Channel and with no help whatsoever from Albert Einstein, whose theories on warping of space-time continue to be bothersome.
