Following their critically acclaimed 2020 Netflix series, Australia’s favourite absurdist sketch group, Aunty Donna, will tour their first live theatre show in more than three years, The Magical Dead Cat, across Australia in October and November.
It’s been a big year for the trio who in 2020, partnered with Netflix for the worldwide release of Aunty Donna’s Big Ol’ House of Fun, executive produced by The Office’s Ed Helms and Between Two Ferns’ Scott Aukerman. The series received praise from fans across the globe including Neil Patrick Harris and RuPaul.
When asked about their upcoming tour, the Aunty Donna boys said, “When the Magical Dead Cat demanded we participate in this incredible tour of Australia, a tour showcasing brand new hilarious comedy and some fan favourite bits from our recent world-shaking Netflix series, we were initially hesitant. It seemed we would provide the bulk of the entertainment whilst the Magical Dead Cat would merely bring some coughed up fur balls!’
‘We raised our concerns with the Magical Dead Cat and it offered to sweeten the deal by ending each show with a special surprise web slinging guest whose name rhymes with Glider Man. Desperate to meet this special surprise guest, we immediately said yes.”
Aunty Donna exploded onto the Melbourne comedy scene in 2012 with their unique brand of surreal, fast paced, alternative sketch. Since then, their loud and energetic shows have toured around the globe multiple times, won an accolade of awards and amassed a worldwide fanbase including more than 453,000 subscribers and 84 million views on YouTube.
Once again Mark Samual Bonanno, Broden Kelly and Zachary Ruane will join together to deliver Aunty Donna’s wildly entertaining style of comedy for a new tour across Brisbane, Canberra, Perth, Adelaide, Sydney, Melbourne and Hobart.
