After storming the Melbourne Comedy Festival in 2010, Sammy J & Randy return for another human-puppet-musical-comedy extravaganza!
When Sammy J and Randy discover somebody dumping trash in their rubbish bin, they arrange an over-night stake-out to catch the culprit. But when their surveillance operation takes an unfortunate turn, they're forced to confront some painful questions - with only seven hours before sunrise to find some answers. Why has Sammy been blacklisted by the emergency services? Whatever happened to Randy's globe-trotting girlfriend? And what exactly are they hiding in their own rubbish bags?
Lock your doors and separate your recyclables...It's going to be a long night.
When comedian Sammy J and puppeteer Heath McIvor first collaborated in 2008, the result was "Sammy J in the Forest of Dreams", a comedy musical featuring a cast of fourteen puppets. The show won the Age Critics' Award in Melbourne and went on to receive five-star reviews in Edinburgh, a West End season, and a DVD release. Their next collaboration, "Ricketts Lane", went one better - it won the Barry Award for Most Outstanding Show at the 2010 Melbourne International Comedy Festival, and followed up with a season at the Sydney Opera House.
"Bin Night" promises to build on this success, or collapse under the pressure. Either way, it'll be a great night out for most of the family.
