Critically praised Doctor Who based comedy theatre coming to my Canberra?
I am so there, any other Rioter Whovians going to heed the call?
Doctor Who is about to face his greatest challenge: his number one fan. Melbourne comedian Rob Lloyd puts The Doctor on trial in WHO, ME, a comedy show about obsession and it’s many faces playing three sessions only this weekend at CSIRO Discovery Centre.
After sell out seasons at the Melbourne and Adelaide Fringe Festivals and The Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Rob Lloyd will be asking the BIG questions in WHO, ME. Rob will be investigating whether Doctor Who (the television show) is guilty of inciting in him a debilitating obsession, or whether it has shaped him into a well-rounded, mentally-sound member of society. Since 1996 Rob Lloyd has dedicated himself to amassing as much Doctor Who knowledge, as well as videos, DVDs, novels, audios, action figures and assorted paraphernalia as he can afford. With his replica Jon Pertwee era sonic screwdriver in hand and dressed in his 10th Doctor get up he is ready to jump head first into finding out how and why he got here!
Built up through improvisation and storytelling techniques, this one-man show is a personal and fitting tribute to a television icon. Through the course of the show we will see how one TV program can influence a person’s actions, behavior and psyche. You don’t need to be a Doctor Who fan to relate to this show, it speaks to anyone who has known obsession. It’s an hilarious romp across the Doctor’s 49 years, 11 faces and countless adventures.
