For those who are interested, my new show for the Melbourne International Comedy Festival POKER IN THE FACE just received a great review from the official critic in 'The Age' newspaper this morning.

I'm pretty pleased seeing that she saw the very first performance.

Thanks Tony!

The "official" Comedy Festival site for Poker in the Face is:

http://www.comedyfestival.com.au/season/2007/show/470

and that has links to a few other reviews as well.

Australia is so cool. If you called a festival that in the U.S., you'd be shut down by the bad press and protesters. Smile

That's not the name of the festival. Tim's show, as part of the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, is called 'Poker In The Face'. I was hoping to post a review of it on here, as I think I'm one of the few Melbournites that regularly post on the Café, but a busy work scheduele has meant I have made it to very few festival shows this year. Sorry Tim!!

By the way, airship, one of the reviewers seemed to think the show's name (POKER IN THE FACE) was "vile" too.

Am I just missing the entendre here? I get the gag about poking someone in the face ("Better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick" etc) but is there some sort of x-rated meaning I'm missing here?

The show's title is (very innocently) based on this premise:
"The art of poker is not just in the hand, but in the face."

I believe that is the case, I don't like to say here but if you still don't know PM me!
