Audiences are invited to celebrate Halloween this October with the Brisbane debut season of David Massingham’s Little Sketch Book of Horrors, playing at Big Fork Theatre for 2022’s Brisbane Fringe Festival.
This night of spooks, scares and sketch comedy first played to enthusiastic crowds at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, where Weekend Notes described it as, “A must-see show” and The Plus Ones hailed it as, “A glorious masterpiece of witty wordplay and intelligent setups”.
The return season runs October 27th through 30th, coinciding with Halloween. The show sees Massingham (Murder Village, The Big HOO-HAA!, ImproMafia) channeling both Vincent Price and Rowan Atkinson as he mixes a touch of classic horror with a big serve of comedy.
As a champion improviser and a Raw Comedy state finalist, Massingham relies on his years of comedy experience as he delivers witty and inventive sketch monologues.
Little Sketch Book of Horrors follows on from Massingham’s critically acclaimed debut show Sketch Me Like One of Your French Girls. Before that, the comedian is no stranger to fringe and comedy festivals, launching sellout improv and sketch comedy seasons at Brisbane’s Wonderland Festival, the Adelaide Fringe Festival, and Melbourne International Comedy Festival.
With his previous sketch comedy group The Sexy Detectives, he received an Artist’s Choice nomination at Wild West Comedy Festival in Perth, became a top five finalist in Comedy Channel’s Comedy Gold comp and was featured on ABC TV.
Pop Culture-y called it, “a fine piece of sketch comedy that is refreshingly original.” and Squirrel Comedy said it “has the power to have you regularly falling about with laughter.”
Tickets to David Massingham’s Little Sketch Book of Horrors can be found on the Fringe Brisbane website.
