A Bookish Comedy Show

This event has passed!

Book worms rejoice! The book-themed comedy smash is back! On the heels of sold-out runs and rave reviews in Edinburgh, Perth, Adelaide and Melbourne, comedian George Dimarelos and his band of brainy bibliophiles return to Perth Fringe World with A Bookish Comedy Show.

Featuring new material from George and a rotating bill of comedians “nerding out” and talking about everything book related, A Bookish Comedy Show combines wit, self-deprecation and clever wordplay to engage audiences in the subtle art of looking down at nonbook readers.

From a children’s book that scarred you for life to the summer reading assignment that sucked out your soul, if you like reading then this is the show for you. ### Hailing from Melbourne, George Dimarelos began performing standup comedy in Sydney in 2011 before being part of his first standup comedy show in the 2013 Sydney Fringe Festival.

He continued improving his observational comedic style overseas, performing in London, Edinburgh, Asia and New York and in Australia was nominated as one of the FRESH acts at the 2017 Sydney Comedy Festival. George also writes and performs sketch comedy as part of the 5MA Productions team.
