FunnieS at Frank's National Science Week Special Show

National Science Week Special Event

Starring Alanta Colley and Ben McKenzie

FunnieS at Frank’s and Jokers Comedy Club have again combined forces to celebrate the funny side of National Science Week.

Joining us this year will be Ben McKenzie and Alanta Colley - two performers who inhabit that rare and beautiful space where science and comedy intersect.

After enjoying great success with their separate creative endeavours, Ben and Alanta collaborated this year to perform their hit show You Chose Poorly at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival. The show invites you to ‘sun yourself on the deck chair of your hopes and fears’ while Ben and Alanta explore the psychology behind the bad decisions we all make.
