Comedian Ash Williams survived hard times in L.A by selling nipple sucks at a gay bar! Now back in Australia he is determined to do whatever it takes to make the big time.
Well known as part of the breakfast crew on Nova FM, his career as a comedian and actor took a dive when he tried to make it in Los Angeles even though he was booked regularly at the famous Comedy Store, posed for romance novel covers and was in an episode of Anger Management as a yoga teacher all over Martin Sheen’s daughter.
Down but not out, Ash returned to Australia and got his first ever appearance at the Comedy Festival touring across the country last year. His act I’ve Done Bad Things was a sell out and he is returning again this year with his brand new show Back in Business.
In an interview City Hub asked him exactly what is he Back in Business with? In his typical playful way Ash’s response was “With my life… A few years ago I was living with my mum, I stole a car from Budget, and my girlfriend broke up with me and took everything I had which was a huge bullet, so times were tough mate! But I’m back with a business degree from Deakin University that’s a bit dodgy.”
Ash will be addressing a few of life’s important issues in his show such as how to take a shower, how to get upgraded to business class, maximising your tax returns, credit card repayment strategies and generally getting up to highly illegal stuff. So you don’t want to miss out on this lecture!
May 4-7, Thu-Sat 7pm, Sun 6pm. The Enmore Theatre, 118-132 Enmore Rd, Newtown. $20-$25. Tickets & Info: www.enmoretheatre.com.au
