Nominee, Best Show ‘Barry’  - 2008 Melbourne Int'l Comedy Festival

Nominee, Best International Show -  2009 NZ Int'l Comedy Festival

Oh my gosh! It’s the brand new show from the award-winning creators of the international smash-hit, Sammy J in the Forest of Dreams!  Ricketts Lane just won the highest award in Australian comedy - the Barry Award, or Most Outstanding Comedy at the 2010 Melbourne Int'l Comedy Festival.

Meet Sammy J (skinny man) and Randy (purple puppet), two very different housemates with very different pasts. Together they live in a house on Ricketts Lane, sharing the cooking, avoiding the cleaning, and passing the hours playing “Chebble” - an original combination of Chess and Scrabble.

 

Sammy’s an underpaid, overworked, shit-kicking tax lawyer. Randy hardly works at all. He’s been married, divorced, thrown from a hovercraft and seen the world from all angles. But when Sammy uncovers some financial skeletons in Randy’s closet, things are going to get awkward at the breakfast table. They’re about to learn that friendship and full-scale tax fraud don’t mix.

 

Directed by Alan Brough, Ricketts Lane is a live sit-com with an HBO twist – think Tony Danza meets Tony Soprano..Basil Fawlty running the Gem Saloon in Deadwood...Betty from Hey, Dad smoking crack in the high rises of Baltimore before being felt up by Officer McNolte…you get the idea.

 

Sammy J (Good News Week, Spicks and Specks) and puppeteer Heath McIvor’s previous collaboration, Sammy J in the Forest of Dreams, premiered in 2008, and went on to win the hearts and minds of comedy audiences around the world. Blending musical comedy, deft puppetry and memorable characters, it was nominated for Best Show at the 2008 MICF, scored 5-star reviews in Edinburgh, and played sell-out seasons in London’s West End.

 

So come and join Sammy J and Randy for a cuppa. Drive straight past Boringville, chuck a left on Goodtime Avenue, and you’ll find yourself in Ricketts Lane.

To coincide with the premiere of their new show, Sammy J and Heath McIvor have released the live DVD of Sammy J in The Forest of Dreams, in stores now  or buy your signed copy now  online @ http://laughingstock.com.au/store/
