Swing along to MICF 2016 and see Damian Callinan in new show, Swing Man

Last night I had the pleasure of seeing Damian Callinan’s new show, Swing Man, at the Malthouse Theatre as part of the Melbourne International Comedy Festival. You can’t help but walk out of this light hearted and uplifting show with a smile on your dial!

Damian learnt how to dance in 4 months! After procrastinating a goal of learning to do the swing style of dance for 35 years, he forced  himself into doing it with a deadline of an international comedy festival. Impressive! Procrastination is such a killer for me, perhaps I need the drive of performing to hundreds a night to get me going!

There’s dance, theatre, laughs and even audience participation. My feet were tapping and I was grinning like a cheshire cat. Genuinely heart warming to see someone learn a new skill and share it with a crowd. Damian is clearly passionate about the dancing, but also his dedication to Australian comedy and theatre.

Get along and see this show! Can’t wait for it to get to Sydney so I can see it again!

More about the show:

Damo set himself one goal to achieve before he turned 50: learn to Swing Dance! Result: he owns professional dance shoes but still can’t swing dance. As far as unfulfilled life goals go, it’s no modern day tragedy, but when you selectively narrow your life goals down to one thing and you don’t do it, it’s time for revision.

What else has Damo left off his list of goals? Can he meet his revised target of learning to swing dance by 51? Are his dance shoes tax deductible? ‘Lindy hop’ on down to watch the 3 time Barry nominee ‘Shag’ his way through his mid­life ‘Boogie Woogie’ crisis.
