Team Austraya – Franky Walnut & Cliffy
Franky Walnut meets Bogan philosopher Cliffy for a pants-splitting night of homegrown humour, silly songs and social satire. ‘Franky Walnut’ is the alter ego of pop singer/songwriter turned comedian Keir Nuttal. Influenced by the likes of John Williamson, Rodney Rude, Louis CK and more, Nuttall has created an all-Australian character that gives Chad Morgan a run for his money. He recently hit the nail on the head with his debut, The Franky Walnut Reflective Drink Coaster. Greg Bird’s award-winning comedy character ‘Cliffy’ returns to the stage after a long hiatus, waiting for compo that never came. In this, the ‘International Year of the Bogan’, Cliffy gives musical expression to the growing artistic movement known as the ‘Bogan Renaissance’. Get in touch with your inner Bogan, and join Cliffy as he pays tribute to our unique Australian sub-culture.
