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 sold-out shows and glowing reviews at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Con Coutis brings his frenetic solo show to Melbourne Fringe.

“Con Coutis is a certified physical comedy genius... the audience is but putty in the hands of this consummate performer.” – Australian Arts Review

“More impressive than I can possibly summarise in a review.” – Funny Tonne

"On this trip, you'll hit nothing but laughs." – Weekend Notes
