Adam Hills Comedian Adam Hills (from Spicks and Specks, the Logies, and much more) is performing his show ‘Joymonger’ in Perth this Friday and Saturday, 11 and 12 May 2007, two shows each night.

Put simply, Joymonger is an hour of what Adam Hills does best – uplifting stand up comedy, interspersed with audience chat and moments of improvised joy. In his most recent Edinburgh run, Adam conducted a gay wedding for two audience members, held an impromptu job interview for another member of the crowd, and became a godfather to a three month old baby in the front row.

Tickets through BOCS are $38.00. Only single seats available.

Shows are on at 7.30pm and 9.30pm at the Octagon Theatre at UWA in Nedlands.
