Emma Lahana in Marvels’ CLOAK & DAGGER

April 18 2018

Super stoked to see Emma Lahana taking on the role of Det. Brigid O’Reilly in upcoming Marvel show CLOAK & DAGGER. 

“Detective Brigid O’Reilly is accustomed to working in a man’s world, but she isn’t looking to be ‘one of the guys.’ Her New York sensibilities have hardened her from being too friendly or open, setting her apart from her Louisiana counterparts. Brigid believes in justice and doesn’t think that anyone should be above it, including other cops. Especially other cops…”

Warning **spolier alert** in the comic Brigid goes on to become a vigilante named Mayhem, but no word yet whether she will follow the same path in the TV series...
   

Two Hearts Melbourne World Tour

March 29 2018

Awesome musical comedy duo Laura Daniel and Joseph Moore are taking their pitch perfect send up of modern pop music to Australia for the first time. 

"Imagine a Selena Gomez concert, but all of Selena Gomez's songs have jokes in them. And there are two Selena Gomezes. And one of them is a boy. Two Hearts have blown NZ audiences away with sold-out shows, memorable TV appearances and their songs would be on the radio if the radio stations knew what they were doing".

'Two Hearts is the show of the 2017 NZ International Comedy Festival. Hell, it might even be the show of the year of any genre.' The Spinoff

'I had mascara running down my face because I laughed so hard that I cried.' Stuff.co.nz

'You’ll find yourself wanting to sing along until you realise you don’t know the words. It’s a spectacular and surprising, top notch performance from beginning to end.' NZGirl.co.nz


If you are lucky enough to be in Melbourne and able to see these guys BOOK HERE

ABC's THE CROSSING starring our Simone Kessell is now available to American audiences, and after seeing the trailer we can't wait for a local release.  

"Refugees from a war-torn country seek asylum in a small American fishing town, only the country these people are from is America... and the war they are fleeing hasn't happened yet. As the government tries to uncover the truth behind this mysterious migration, only one thing is certain: The lives of the people here-both the townspeople and these newcomers-will never be the same".

Different Party wins at Adelaide Fringe

March 21 2018

Congratulations to our the 2018 BankSA Adelaide Fringe Award Winners,
especially our Barnie Duncan and Trygve Wakenshaw for taking out the BankSA Best Comedy Award:

"Trygve and Barnie whittle away the minutes in the barren office of Ruck's Leather Interiors, patiently waiting for the phone call that may or may not give them something to actually do. In between the drudgery of the 9-5, the minutiae of office existence transform into incredible slapstick as these two clown and comedy performers come together to create something greater than the sum of its parts. Dialogue is minimal, but jokes are plentiful in this extraordinary celebration of the banal"

We are ever hopeful that they will bring this "extraordinary celebration of the banal" down to our neck of the woods sometime soon!
