Steady Eddy will feature at a comedy night presented by Mandy Nolan at Casino RSM this Saturday, February 18, from 8pm.
In 1968 Steady Eddy was beamed down from the planet Vegemite to interact with the general population of Earth. He soon found out that things were different from his home planet. Not only were humans physically inept, he also discovered they were very condescending to aliens.
They tried to lock him away in a Sheltered Workshop but they didn't take into account his will power and thirst for life. He rebelled against the system by going out into the real world and becoming a stand-up comic.
Steady Eddy worked at Sydney's Comedy Store in January 1991. He appeared dozens of times on The Midday Show with Ray Martin and was soon picked up by Steve Vizard. When he appeared on Tonight Live, Steady stole the show and ousted Steve from the host's hot seat. He followed this by a further nine appearances.
Steady toured Australia and New Zealand extensively and recorded his first comedy album Ready Steady Go! for which he earned an Aria award.
Steady has won the prestigious Mo Awards for New Wave Comedy Performer of the Year (twice) and the Comedy Performer of the Year.
He has performed at the Montreal Just For Laughs Comedy Festival, the Austrian Comedy Festival in Vienna, the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and the LA Comedy Store. He tours nationally regularly and continues to be the (rather wobbly) benchmark for Australian comedy.
Steady will be supported by local comedian and writer S Sorrensen who will no doubt whinge about everything and make it seem funny.
Mandy Nolan, the queen of quomedy, the mistress of mirth, will MC the night and guide the comedy ship towards comedy bliss.
This show is definitely for adults over 18.
And it's absolutely free!
