There’s another show on tonight by the Melbourne Comedy crowd. We saw last night’s show and I damn near bust a gut laughing. The puppeteer guy was out of this world funny, and the compare and headline act brilliant. At only forty bucks a ticket it was a steal, I’d have happily paid double that.

I don’t know if there’s tickets available for tonight, but if you can buy, beg, borrow or steal one, then do go!

Last two days of the felting exhibition at CSIRO discovery. Art pieces as well as lots of hats and brooches for sale.
