The Topp Twins have toured the world with their particular type of humour that incorporates slapstick, stand-up, funny songs, yodelling (yes folks, yodelling) and a host of characters theyve created. (Like the Kens two Kiwi blokes.) The Herald in Glasgow called them NZs finest export since lamb cutlets. (He he. Thats pretty humorous for a newspaper.)
The duo has been playing to packed houses in clubs and festivals everywhere. (When I saw them last time in Lismore they packed out City Hall.) Theres some serious talent in the Topp Twins and not all of it is comedic these women write very good straight songs as well as their humorous ones. (The Topp Twins began their careers as singer-songwriters and toured with the Split Enz, Billy Bragg and Midnight Oil before they developed the comedic side to their performance. They have a new country CD Grass Highway.)
The Topp Twins TV series has won several television awards in NZ (Best Entertainers) and is now screening in Australia on ABC and Foxtel.
Their live show contains the full gamut of entertainment from sheep jokes (about Aussies!?) to political satire. You can enjoy it all when they play Lismore City Hall next Thursday, March 30, at 8pm.
Tickets are available from the Northern Rivers Ticket Centre on 6621 5600.
