Yianni Agisilaou: The Simpsons Taught Me Everything I Know

hero

IMPORTANT UPDATE
I’m sorry to have to say that due to the new restrictions for metropolitan Melbourne, we’ve decided to reschedule the shows that were due to play on 6 August.

As you’ll probably know, Melbourne has come under stricter restrictions in the last few days. (If you’re not based in Melbourne, you can get a quick update of the situation here.)

If you’ve already purchased a ticket, you’ll have an email from me about this in the email address you used for booking.

We’ve rescheduled the shows for seven weeks’ time (Tuesday 15 September). We’re going to take three weeks off from performances, and reassess how we can continue to present shows. If we can do shows safely and in compliance we’ll come out with a new program for September and October (and hopefully some of August).

If you’d like to keep up to date with these developments, you can sign up to the Serious Comedy Newsletter here: https://www.seriouscomedy.com.au/newsletter/

In the meantime, stay safe and look after each other,
Carrie and the Serious Comedy team.

 

 

Yianni Agisilaou brings his worldwide smash show “The Simpsons Taught Me Everything I Know” to Zoom!

Hi, I’m Yianni. You may remember me from such shows as Australia Says Welcome (Conditions Apply) and Gladys the Groovy Mule! I've also won comedy awards at Fringe festivals in Edinburgh, Ogdenville and North Haverbrook and by gum it put then on the map!
But today I’m here to tell you about my special online Zoom show coming to you from a pop up broadcast studio in Melbourne, a hilarious and cromulent look at a lifetime spend watching and quoting The Simpsons. Can an obsessive knowledge of the world's longest running cartoon embiggen one's understanding or is that unpossible?
Whether you’re a Simpsons tragic or just love the best show in TV history, it’s a fun-diddly-un hour full of impressions, facts and stories including the true story of how I almost ended up as the replacement voice for Mr Burns and Smithers.
DOHn’t miss it!
Go and see this show, even if you don’t know who The Simpsons are ★★★★ ½ Daily Review

Deep and thoughtful as well as charming and intelligent. This is everything that a
good show should be ★★★★ The Skinny
Sharp social commentary to compare favourably to Woody Allen ★★★★ Chortle
Wonderfully funny ★★★★ Time Out
Stunningly Good ★★★★ The Scotsman

Tickets are based a Pay What You Can model. If you can buy a ticket (they’re $5 - $30) that’s GREAT! If you can’t, book a free ticket. Just make sure you like Yianni’s Facebook page, share the event, or sign up to the Serious Comedy newsletter (you know, all the nice word-of-mouth stuff).
