The Bedroom Philosopher – Cat Show
Date and Time: Friday 24 & Saturday 25 March 2017, 8:30pm
Venue: Canberra Theatre Centre, The Courtyard Studio
Comedic jazz-cat The Bedroom Philosopher (Triple J) returns for an extra special Canberra purr-formance. He’ll celebrate his back cat-alogue by playing every song that mentions a cat, while dressed as a cat. It’ll be Cat Stevens versus Cat Power with Kitty Flanagan by a whisker. Enjoy an intimate evening with this witty meowstro.
The Bedroom Feline-of-fur is best known for his Triple J hit ‘Northcote (So Hungover)’ which is the Khe-Sanh for hipsters. He won the Directors Choice award at Melbourne International Comedy Festival and made his debut appearance on Spicks & Specks seven times (repeats). He has supported the likes of Amanda Palmer, Peter Combe and Tripod.
In 2009 he played a young John Safran in John Safran Race Relations. He has appeared on the Melbourne International Comedy Festival Gala, Rage and Adam Hills Tonight. (He was on Collectors with his collection of three hundred 1970’s ties. The vision was so confronting that the show was immediately axed).
As Justin Heazlewood his book Funemployed: Life as an Artist in Australia was published in 2014 and a series on Radio National. His latest album Funemployed LP is available on Spotify which keeps him in cat biscuits.
