Who's Your Daddy? at the Elephant and Wheelbarrow until April 22
PARENTS, get ready to take an amusing look at your own lives.
Prepare to shake your heads and chuckle at familiar tales of spoilt, nosy, but loveable kids, crazy relatives who are only interested in your lives the instant your baby enters the world, and the trying condition that is pregnancy – trying for the woman, yes, but mostly for her partner, according to these male comics.
Fronting up to host the show, and deliver some of its best material, is British father-of-five Terry North. This veteran comic had the audience in stiches talking about his smart-arse tendencies, the night he lost his virginity and re-enacting a smutty joke he pulled on his wife with his six-year-old son’s toy dinosaur.
Dad number two, Mooroolbark father-of-three JJ McLean, was at his best when telling the audience how he tried (and failed) to comfort his wife on the eve of her 40th birthday.
The last dad to grace the stage – Greek-Australian actor and comedian and new father George Kapiniaris – ranted hilariously about the traumatic experience that was his wife’s pregnancy, his meddling Greek aunt and his hatred for Dora the Explorer.
Parents will adore this show, and non-parents will still get many a laugh.
Despite a rigorous schedule of shows, the boys do not seem to lose any of their energy. “Every night is a bit different, we love doing this show. with guests that have included some of the biggest names in Australian comedy, both Mums and Dads, these guys come together to put on a stand-up comedy sensation for the dads and mums and everyone else.
