Headliner: Gus Lymburn
Gus Lymburn burst onto the comedy scene in 2006 when he performed at The Stand’s Red Raw night. Since then he’s been charming and disturbing audiences in equal measure (don’t be fooled by the cheeky chappie demeanour, behind the puppy dog eyes lurks a sick mind). Never one to take a standard approach to his stand up, Gus’s act can – and has – incorporated a range of props from noodles to a burka, and on one occasion in a routine described by the Evening News as ‘the act of a desperate man’ – a can of squirty cream. He has even sustained a cracked rib when a mock stage fight with a fellow comic got out of hand. Gus Lymburn is a comedian without a rulebook. In an age where many audiences have come to expect much of the same kind of made-for-TV format that is seen so often, Lymburn insists that disorganisation and surprise is all part of the fun.
