Half Steam Ahead!

Mon 4 to Sun 10 Apr

Half Steam Ahead!

A cruise ship. Staffed, operated and inhabited solely by Con Coutis. Soak up some sketch comedy. Relax and unwind with some stand-up. Enjoy some wordplay in the tropics. The SS Steam-Dream – boarding now!

After the completely sold-out run of Daydream (MICF, 2021), Con Coutis is certifiably Half Steam Ahead! with his debut solo show. This exciting young comedian uses “fast-paced dialogue, physical comedy and witticisms” (Lot’s Wife) to keep audiences on their toes.

Praise for Daydream (MICF, 2021):

‘One of the slickest, fastest paced and funniest hours of comedy I have seen for quite a number of years.’ Squirrel Comedy.

Praise for The Dark Side of the Room (Melbourne Fringe, 2019):

‘Ripping slapstick comedy… with linguistic sophistication.’ Weekend Notes.
