Given the success of Outside the Box earlier this year, Brendon Burns and Perfect Strangers Comedy are pleased to present Outside The Box 2.
Earlier in the year Burns took to touring anything but traditional comedy venues. With over 100 other shows to compete with he asked himself why bust his arse to sell tickets to people that wouldn’t comprehend him anyway. So rather than picking a fight, he ran and hid. He decided to follow in the footsteps of the likes of Doug Stanhope and Patton Oswalt in the US and leave the comedy clubs behind, touring absolutely anything but. From zoos to libraries, from old indie music venues to comic book stores.
As a follow up to Outside the Box, the anti-comedy club crowd tour, now he’s dodging the most dreaded of audiences – the Christmas office party. We will be taking no office parties, no group bookings and really not going to far out of our way to even let people know where we are.
Older, wiser and calmer, Brendon’s energy is still enticing. His turn of phrase coarse yet oddly eloquent, whilst remaining fully accessible and intensely loveable.
Never pompous and ever self-deprecating he just somehow seems to get away with murder. Often replicated but never matched, his shows aren’t just extended sets, Burns specialises in creating experiences: forever experimenting with the form and throwing himself new challenges.
