SEASON RUNS 11-25 MAY

SYNOPSIS:

Chris Martin, one of Australia’s most promising up-and-coming comedians, is digging his claws into the 2019 Anywhere Festival with his hilarious show Claw Machine.

“Ageing, relationships, the awkward situations I constantly find myself in are all covered in this show,” says Martin, a Brisbane-based comedian. “I use these stories and personal experiences to show that a relationship exits between people and the popular arcade Claw Machine.”
Martin, whose relaxed style of storytelling comedy has gained the attention of many industry heavyweights, debuted Claw Machine at the 2018 Bris Funny Fest, where the show was met with sell-out crowds, rave reviews and audience acclaim. The show was also positively received at the 2019 Adelaide Fringe Festival. After recently directing Big Fork Theatre’s production Around The Campfire at the 2019 Brisbane Comedy Festival to glowing reviews, Martin returns to the Anywhere Festival to do what he does best – tell his hilarious stories on stage.

“I can’t wait to perform this show again in Brisbane,” says Martin. “I’ve worked really hard on it, and it’s even better than the show I debuted at the Bris Funny Fest last year.”
