THE NAKED CITY – LIGHTS, CAMERA, ACTION – SYDNEY!

Think of some of the classic movie locations of all time and you might immediately recall the mean streets of New York City, the boulevards of Paris or the historic precincts of Rome. All have been the urban film sets of some of cinema’s greatest classics. Sydney, on the other hand, can’t quite match its […]

Bert Kreischer – Body Shots World Tour

American comedian Bert Kreischer’s comedy show is unlike any other. Rather than following a set routine of jokes Kreischer instead describes his show by saying, “It’s like being in my living room when I stand up to go get some beers but then I end up telling a story instead and take my shirt off.” […]

THE NAKED CITY – THE SYDNEY FOOTBALL STADIUM DEMOLITION SPECTACULAR!

You have to feel for architect Philip Cox, as despite a temporary legal injunction, the wrecking ball hovers ominously over his Sydney Football Stadium – a mere 30 years since his innovative design was first realised. It’s almost akin to watching an innocent man on death row, waiting in vain until the final day of […]

THE NAKED CITY – IT’S WORLD ‘SOMETHING’ DAY!

It’s about this time of year that we often familiarise ourselves with the new calendar to see just when the public holidays fall. This is seldom done out of any particular reverence for the holiday in question. Take Australia Day for example. Apart from the announcement of the finalists for Australian Of The Year and […]

THE NAKED CITY – APOCALYPSE ALMOST NOW!

Back in the 1960s, as the old red rattlers made their way out of West Ryde Station, commuters were greeted with a trackside billboard that regularly forecast the day of judgement, the ‘rapture ’ and the end of the world as we know it today. I seem to remember it was curated by the Christadelphians […]

Comedy’s New Frontier

Comedy has always been an artistic medium which has pushed boundaries, but never more so than it does today. In December two of the worlds leading comics, American Brad Williams and Australian Jim Jefferies, are bringing their raunchy, no-holds-barred and brutally biting shows to Sydney thanks to Frontier Touring’s comedy arm. Jim Jefferies began his […]

A New Generation Of Laughter

With comedy festivals continuing to multiply and grow in size City Hub spoke to two of the world’s leading comics, America’s Iliza Shlesinger and Australia’s own Tommy Little, to gain a greater understanding of the contributing factors behind the phenomenon. Unexpectedly both comics had two very different opinions on the matter. According to Shlesinger the […]

THE NAKED CITY – DUMPING THE ANTHEM AND THE ROYALS!

In case you are unaware, Channel 7 has recently declared itself  ‘Australia’s Royal Network’. Whether it’s received an official blessing from Buckingham Palace is open to question, but one thing’s for sure – the station is milking the current resurgence of interest in the British Royal Family for every rating point it can score. It […]

THE NAKED CITY – DEATH ZONE ON EVEREST!

Amidst a hyperbolic frenzy and a protest over billboarding of the Opera House sails, the world’s richest horse race on turf was run last Saturday – but what does it all mean? The organisers Racing NSW will tell you it was a massive success, attracting a bumper crowd at Randwick and considerable media coverage. They now claim […]
