TO TAKE BETTER LIVING THROUGH SPORT ON TOUR FOLLOWING A HUGE 23-SHOW RUN AT THE MELBOURNE INTERNATIONAL COMEDY FESTIVAL
After selling out the majority of his 23 show-run at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival (MICF) this year, Frontier Comedy is thrilled to announce that Australia’s most hilarious sports satirist Titus O’Reily is taking his hit show Better Living Through Sport on the road in a national tour!
With two sell-out MICF seasons and last year’s crowd-pleasing Bye Round Tour of Australian capitals under his belt, the prolific Tweeter is back to impart his worldly wisdom onto grateful audiences once more. Titus kicks off his Better Living Through Sport tour at The Street Theatre, Canberra on Saturday 10 August before hitting Adelaide’s Arkaba Hotel on Thursday 22 August, The Sydney Comedy Store on Friday 30 and Perth’s Octagon Theatre on Saturday 31 August. Titus then heads to Hobart on Saturday 12 October for a show at Jokers Comedy Club before jetting up to Brisbane’s Sit Down Comedy Club on Saturday 19 October.
This show will make you rich, healthier and ridiculously good looking. Drawing on lessons learned from his years lying on the couch watching sports, Titus shows you a simple 147-step plan to improve your life through the lessons of professional sport. Applying free agency rules to relationships, using a prepared statement to get you out of trouble with work colleagues, or offering a ‘to anyone who was offended’ apology, Titus presents a masterclass in how to improve your life with the elite honesty of our top sportspeople.
