Sunshine Coast Council presents 70 minutes of hilarious stand-up comedy Disco: The Vinyl Solution for one performance only at 7.30pm on Friday 25 October 2013 at Nambour Civic Centre.
It’s the sister show to Melbourne-based comedian, satirist, broadcaster and DJ Fiona Scott-Norman’s previous award-winning show, The Needle and the Damage Done, which toured to over 70 regional Australian centres and venues, from The Sydney Opera House to Alice Springs and Burnie.
A DJ for 15 years, a fiend for swing dancing, and once described by The Age as having 'a forensic knowledge of bad music', Fiona knows more about what doesn’t work on the dance floor than an Aussie dad attempting freeform Lambada.
Disco explores the big issues in contemporary society - is street violence caused by electronic dance music? Fiona knows that disco won't bring world peace, but a man who's just danced to It’s Raining Men isn't glassing anyone in the face.
Disco is directed by Tim Ferguson (ex-Doug Anthony Allstars and Don’t Forget Your Toothbrush) and toured by Regional Arts Victoria.
As you’d expect, the show is fearless and funny and appeals to a 30 plus audience. Cost to attend is $35 for adults, $30 for concessions and groups of eight or more and $20 for people aged 25 years or under. For bookings visit Nambour Civic Centre, Centenary Square, Currie Street, Nambour or call 5475 7777 or on the Sunshine Coast Venues and Events web
“This show fulfils all my ha-ha criteria. Impeccably written. Go see Fiona Scott-Norman who is far, far funnier than a writer should be”. Helen Razer, The Age
“It’s the perfect balance between topical prose and comedy; Fiona Scott-Norman reaches some interesting conclusions that one would generally not expect to realise during a comedy act, and further establishes herself as an entertainer with the capacity to turn contemporary issues into comedic art”. Arts Hub
“Brilliant, full of witty similes and mordant cultural reference”. The Age
