Rethink Australia's immigration policies with one of the country's best comedians.
It might be hard to imagine how Australia's contentious immigration and asylum seeker policies could be fodder for comedy, but Tom Ballard has somehow managed to produce a 'comedy lecture' that is at once moving, thought-provoking, and piss-your-pants funny.
The award-winning comedian's latest show Boundless Plains to Share (which takes its title from that oft-forgotten line in our national anthem) tackles the history, inhumanity, and hypocrisy of Australia's immigration policies. It's that rare kind of performance that will leave you both furious and introspective, and also belly-sore from all the laughter. This is one Brisbane Comedy Festival event you definitely don't want to miss.
This is one of our top picks for this year's Brisbane Comedy Festival. Read the whole list.
