Sammy J & Randy in Ricketts Lane (SYDNEY OPERA HOUSE)

The 2010 Barry Award winners in their debut Sydney season

Sammy J & Randy in Ricketts Lane

This year’s winner of the Most Outstanding Comedy award at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival comes to Sydney Opera House!

Sammy J (skinny man) and Randy (purple puppet), are two very different housemates with very different pasts. Together they live in a house on Ricketts Lane. Blending musical comedy, deft puppetry and memorable characters, this is the brand new show from the award-winning creators of the international smash-hit, Sammy J in the Forest of Dreams!

Sammy’s an underpaid, overworked 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 Spicks & Specks’ Alan Brough, Ricketts Lane is a live sitcom 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 & Randy in Ricketts Lane recently won the highest award in Australian comedy - the Barry Award at the 2010 Melbourne Int'l Comedy Festival. 

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.

"Sometimes epic, sometimes funky, sometimes just incredibly ridiculous and uproariously funny" - The Pun, Melbourne

"Another brilliantly executed musical extravaganza that's raucus, witty fun from start to finish" - Chortle, UK
