When society refuses to stop you succeeding, perhaps you’ll find your own ways to fail…
Not sure how to find your way through this crazy world? Three Blind Men will misguide you through a maze of terrorist magpies, awful children, anti-vaxxer parents and overpopulation. Through Taylor Coughtrie’s daring dissections, Nick Schuller’s amazing analysis, and Chris Marlton’s fictional feasts you’ll learn about the economic feasibility of heaven, how to name crocodiles, and whether or not it’s too easy to live. You’ll pray at a digital church, find out if Rose from Titanic was a good person, and even solve Australia’s gate-manufacturing crisis.
Taylor Coughtrie is a young millennial with a poor work ethic and all the answers. He'll entertain you, probably annoy you, but definitely introduce you to a different way of thinking about life, and maybe even force a few audience members to look in the mirror uncomfortably. Taylor guides you through the thought processes of a self-proclaimed ‘degenerate genius.’ He’s performed in sold out shows at the Canberra Comedy Festival, a prison, and came third place at the RAW Comedy state final.
Nick Schuller has the answers to the questions nobody asked. Which football club would make the best terrorist organisation? What was JFK’s most used hashtag? How can we improve Australia’s gate manufacturing crisis? Nick’s comedy sees him apply his sharp analytical mind to subjects that definitely don’t need to be analysed. The result is a hilarious deep dive into the minutiae of everyday life. Affable, engaging and a little bizarre, Nick delivers a unique brand of stand-up that is sure to please.
Do polar bears fly on planes? Can alligators play piano? And when has a little bit of garbage really hurt anyone? Chris Marlton has all the answers... Bringing a mixture of mind-bending one liners and engaging and laugh-inducing stories that have to be heard to be believed, there isn’t another comedian doing exactly what Marlton is doing; get in on the ground floor and experience these hilarious fever dreams while you can.
Together they are THREE BLIND MEN - a insightful, imaginative and always funny show that you’ll be thinking about for weeks to come. Don’t miss out!
