Tommy Green and some of his Upper Crass mates have reinvented themselves as Johnny Cobra’s Floating Roadshow, now on at 107 Projects in Redfern for the month of August. The Roadshow have left the improve at home this time and are trying their hand at a few updated origin stories (Adam & Eve, St Nicholas) and a few others that defy description. Ok, if I must: a cat with an attitude who continually thwarts his owner’s date, plus a cockney crime gang full of film buffs.

The scope is wide, the laughs are loud, the skits are short and the time goes by in a flash. The gang are much more polished than when I last saw them, and they are getting good crowds.

As always, silly, irreverent and oh, did I mention silly (but good silly)? Chairs provided. (Nice touch). A perfect way to spend a winter night instead of glued to the box.

The show is on again 23 and 30 August, for more information and tickets see: http://107.org.au/event/johnny-cobras-floating-roadshow/

Featuring: three angry white men (one’s got a tan), an entire woman, and even a chubby Asian who was brought out at vast expense from Meadowbank*.

Sculpture by the Sea, Bondi, the world’s largest annual free-to-the-public outdoor sculpture exhibition celebrates its 22nd anniversary this year, returning to the spectacular Bondi to Tamarama coastal walk from 18 October – 4 November.

The iconic exhibition will see the coastline transformed into a two kilometre long sculpture park over three weeks featuring 100 sculptures by artists from Australia and across the world.

Aqualand proudly returns for its third year as Principal Sponsor, along with the prestigious Aqualand Sculpture Award, which has increased to AUD70,000 in 2018 and will be awarded to an exhibiting artist whose sculpture will be gifted for permanent public enjoyment in Sydney.

In 2017, Aqualand’s sponsorship was renewed for an additional five years and is the most significant in the exhibition’s history, continuing to support the growth of the iconic Bondi exhibition.

As one of Sydney’s most beloved and photographed events, Sculpture by the Sea, Bondi attracts over 500,000 visitors over the course of 18 days and signals the beginning of summer in Sydney.
