Sweeney Preston & Ethan Cavanagh
Presentation Is Everything
★ Winner Best Comedy 2023 Dunedin Fringe (New Zealand) ★
★ Sold Out Melbourne International Comedy Festival 2022 & 2023 ★
The antidote to every bland lecture, dull pitch and boring presentation you’ve ever had to endure. Presentation is Everything is an hour of fast-paced stand-up comedy that is visually complemented through the medium of Microsoft PowerPoint.
Written and performed by two of Melbourne’s fastest rising and extravagantly overdressed comedians, Sweeney Preston and Ethan Cavanagh, this show is packed with slides full of images, news cut-outs, maps, animations and (you guessed it) graphs to punctuate their quick-witted stand-up.
After sell-out seasons across Australia and New Zealand, Sweeney and Ethan are making their Brisbane Comedy Festival debut with this award-winning show.
Armed with outfits they can’t afford and a ppt. file they can’t attach to an email, this is a show where presentation truly is everything.
There is a full lockout for this performance and latecomers will not be permitted.
Infants 12 months and under on the knee permitted.
