DOUG ANTHONY ALLSTARS CRACK EDINBURGH AND LONDON ONCE AGAIN ON THEIR WORLD TOUR, AND ANNOUNCE A NEW SHOW IN LISMORE.
As the Australian winter comes to a close, Doug Anthony Allstars send their royal greetings from the perennial windy, bleak and wet Scotland where they are currently whipping Edinburgh Fringe Festival goers into a frenzy not at all diminished by 25 years off the Edinburgh circuit.
To celebrate their huge success and sell out audiences in Edinburgh and London, the tour de force that is DAAS will stage their new show “Near Death Experience”; at Lismore City Hall on Friday 14th and Saturday 15th July.
Currently playing to some of the toughest crowds found anywhere in the world, DAAS are dripping with 4 and 5 star reviews in the UK right now:
“Leave your knee-jerk liberalism at the door as political correctness flies out the window faster than a bullet train leaves Tokyo in this gloriously rude, crude show that’s filled with crazy irreverence that is above all absolutely hilarious. DAAS are less ‘boundary riding’ and more boundary bounding.”
(5 stars, Edinburgh Guide)
“Seizing the chance to see the All Stars while you can… is certainly sage advice… you’ll be missing a transgressive ride, packed full of raw belly laughs”
(5 stars, Chortle)
Since their rebirth in 2013, DAAS have broken box-office records. Their Edinburgh success follows sell out shows across Australia with new show ‘Near Death Experience’, an outrageous bombardment of death, sex, violence, music and more sex.
Their musical comedy is more wicked and dangerous than ever – an irreverent mixture of filthy faux pas, spirited singing, and social commentary – with two decades worth of fresh targets in sight.
Wracked by illness and age, this trio has no time to waste. Speaking from Prague, Paul McDermott said, ‘Death approaches. We have nothing to lose.’ Speaking from experience Paul Livingston said ‘Death is coming, look busy!’
