FUNdaMENTAL

ENJOY CIRCUS? YEP. Love comedy? Ah-huh. Delight in chatting about the big things in life? Sure.

Imagine a skilled juggler rattling off one-liners, dissecting ancient Greek philosophy and discussing if Crypto currency really exists… Imagine no longer, friends, as stand-up comedian and juggler extraordinaire Michael Connell [successfully] attempts this feat before your eyes with his hilarious new show, FUNdaMENTAL.

Supported by Artback NT, he’s hitting stages across the NT in Alice Springs, Tennant Creek, Katherine and Nhulunbuy.

“FUNdaMENTAL is inspired by my hobby of juggling. It seems like a useless skill – I mean, who needs a juggler? But I realised juggling is a metaphor for learning. The steps you take to learn a juggling trick are the same as you’d use to learn anything,” he says.

Connell says his comedy-juggling combo wasn’t exactly planned.

“I wish I was smart enough to have thought to combine them, but no, it was definitely by accident. I’d juggled for years as a hobby in high school but stopped in my twenties when I started getting into stand up. I always assumed no one would want to see the two together,” Connell says.

“Then one night I did some juggling at the end of a set at a comedy club as a joke. People loved it and I thought, ‘oh, I’m on to something here’, so I started mixing the two and people have been loving it.”

Gifted with the ability to inform an audience, whilst inducing a serious cases of the giggles, Connell’s won praise from audiences and critics alike. Don’t miss your chance to witness his physical feats and funny flairs in the flesh.
