After a successful season at the Sydney Comedy Festival, Cam Knight is back by popular demand for one more encore show. The comedian will be discussing everything from religion to fatherhood.
“We went to Thailand and I’d just had my Buddhist fortune told as a bit of a joke, like one of those things you do when you’re on holiday, like braid your hair, get a henna tattoo, or do nine months in a Bali prison,” says Knight.
“I asked what was in store for me and my wife, and it was just shit, it said my life was going to be this constant struggle. I started looking back at my life so the show is a retrospective, the misfortunes that have come my way and the things I’ve learnt from it.”
Knight says his show promises a blend of high energy and thought-provoking pathos: “There’s a great set structure to my shows, I always have holes in it to allow for audience interaction and crowd work. I like working with people one on one. There’s an honesty that is starting to resonate with people. I like to think that people walk out of this show thinking about it, rather than just saying ‘Well, that was funny’.” (GF)
