SO THIS IS WHAT ALLTHE FUSS IS ABOUT!
After sell out seasons around the world Comedians Against Humanity is ready to hit Adelaide bigger & better than ever!
Comedians Against Humanity is an exciting concept in interactive, improvised, satirical stand up, created hosted by Yianni Agisilaou (pron. AJ-ISS-IL-OH). Taking inspiration from the popular card game Cards Against Humanity, this is a show loved by performers and audiences alike – having repeat sell out seasons at Edinburgh, Perth, Melbourne and Sydney Comedy Festivals.
How does it work? During the first game Yianni introduces each guest as giving a press conference and asks you to complete the suggestion “I’m here today to talk to you about the launch of my new book ______”.
You and everyone else in the audience look down at the three cards in your hand, for example:
- Lumberjack Fantasies
- Not Giving A Shit About The Third World; and
- Leaving An Awkward Voicemail.
Suggestions are chosen from audience cards and each of the three guest comedians improvise various press conferences (book launches, government announcements, etc) whilst the audience act as an engaged and probing press asking questions at will.
Expertly directed and assisted by host Yianni, watch three different world class comedians (different comics guest star every night), improvise press conferences, church sermons, product pitches and more, using the riotous, fun and inappropriate suggestions an audience equipped with Cards Against Humanity cards can provide.
Premiering at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2015 Comedians Against Humanity quickly became the underground hit of the fringe, with the venue having to turn away audience members.
