About the Show

The First Three Up Against the Wall is a brand new topical and political standup comedy show premiering at the 2010 Melbourne International Comedy Festival. It features standup from three of Australia's most promising political satirists, Courteney Hocking, Jon Brooks and Toby Halligan.

Show Blurb
When the extremists (of any persuasion) finally get their revolution, expect Courteney, Jon and Toby to be the first to be put up against the wall. These three comedians make it their business to ridicule ideological idiocy at every turn, and this show is jam packed with an hour of the freshest, wittiest, and most downright argumentative political humour you're likely to find anywhere. The First Three Up Against the Wall are all founding members of the hugely successful and well respected Political Asylum comedy room, and they're bringing their absolute best material to the stage for you, the bourgeoisie public. All are welcome. Except Steve Fielding.
