What's On

Melbourne International Comedy Festival

Death To America

It's 2018 and the world may have already ended. One of Australia's best political comedians and activists Sean Bedlam has no answers* but a lot of hilarious, intelligent insights. He has some answers.

Sean has been really enjoying performing ‘Death to America’ and is excited to be bringing it to the Comedy Festival! Finding the jokes and the insights that are always there in even the darkest subject matter – including working out how to talk about an encounter with an average guy who’s convinced Sharia Law is a real threat to his way of life without smugly writing him off as an idiot. Sean’s hope is that ordinary people will rise up, taking charge and steering us away from total disaster - look at what’s happening with the students in the US demonstrating for tighter gun control.

Sean Bedlam is an activist and one of Australia’s most respected and silly political comedians and is very proud to have variously been described by the press as a serial pest and a comedian to watch. ‘Death to America’ is his gift to the people.

Full of relatable stories, ridiculous short sketches and Bedlam's signature tangents that set everyone off in a good way they learn a lot about what’s going on – inside and outside of this remarkable head.

Death to America starts on the 10th of April for 10 shows only!

“This was a funny and engaging show throughout… a laugh filled journey… the material was relatable such that people were able to reflect on similar scenario's in their own lives…It was quirky, erratic and thoroughly engaging… I would see Sean Bedlam again”  All Over Adelaide

“he will take you on a journey, with many twists and turns, that is anything but predictable… Sean Bedlam seems like a man who has a lot more to share than he can fit into this show. He’s the kinda guy you want to invite to your BBQ to pick his brain and spend hours chatting about the world.”  Glam Adelaide

“guaranteed to have you added to the No-Fly List for laughing too hard…piercing observational insight that betrays a deeply intelligent, fiercely questioning mind at odds with what it sees accepted as the norm…his intelligent insight is rendered hilarious when the punchline emerges through the filter of childish logic” Popculture-y

“He stated that he could talk to us for another hour and I’m sure everyone in the room would have loved it. His boisterous and wacky persona has the crowd glued to his every word, eager to see where he will lead us. More often than not, to hilarity.”  Squirrel Comedy
