“Carry a Big Stick” in CANBERRA

Carry a Big Stick
Directed by Marc Gracie

After it’s SELL OUT hit season at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival; Tim Ferguson brings his laugh out loud yet poignant Biographical show to his old head-stomping ground – Canberra!

“Bittersweet, touching and funny Autobiography”
(Herald Sun)

One of Australia’s best-loved international comedians delivers an evening of stories from a life on the comedy warpath.

Tim delivers his adventures with wicked wit and admirable honesty – from touring the world as a Doug Anthony Allstar to his life as a TV network celebrity.

Tim has battled Multiple Sclerosis for much of his adult life. As he says in his show, “It’s not for wimps.”

His journey through the halls of television in Oz, the UK and USA is powerful, scary and very funny.
In his inspiring show “CARRY A BIG STICK” Tim will deliver his trademark sharp insights on the human condition – and his own condition. On his never-ending battle with MS, he says “You can laugh, or you can cry. Laughing takes fewer tissues.”

And there’s more:
Hear dark tales from Logies After-Parties!
Gasp at the behind-the-scenes tales of life as a TV network star!
See a real naked woman for the first time!

New York, Montreal, Paris, Berlin, Queanbeyan… Tim has appeared at (and been thrown out of) the finest venues in the world.

Half-gigolo, half-pimp, half-mathematician, Tim Ferguson has lived. Armed with a big walking stick, this master comedian is fierce, fearless and funny.

Tim said, “I’m looking forward to returning to Canberra. I love the bearpit of standup comedy. In my case it’s standup then sitdown comedy. Yes, it’s that edgy.”

Tim warns audiences to “Be mildly nervous. Be very mildly nervous.”
