Jay Sullivan is the Drunk Monk

Jay Sullivan is the drunk monk. Well, almost. He is a bald semi-Buddhist and, by his own admission, “has no sex or possessions.” Sounds like a monk to me. Not for the faint hearted but with wisdom to impart, Jay’s new show: “I Am the Drunk Monk” shows why he is not only Canberra’s favourite son, but also one of the most unique comic voices in Australia today.

“This guy is an intelligent comic with his eyes on the stars and his mind in the gutter. If you prefer your comedy, bald, drunk, monk-like and in-your-face, this is the show for you.” – The Pun

Two kinds of people are willing to try and answer life’s big questions: drunks and monks.

Green Faces Winner and RAW National Finalist Jay Sullivan knows lots about both.

Spiritual, but with a full shelf of spirits.

This show charts his journey from fundamentalist Christianity to pseudo Monk with plenty of laughs along the way.

“…genuinely brilliant moments.” – The Herald Sun

Come along, laugh, drink and get slapped in the face by the sound of one hand clapping.

It’s the Dalai Lama meets Jack Daniels.

The drunk monk will be performing over 2 nights and will feature supporting sets from local comedians.

All tickets $10. Available from www.comedyact.com.au or else take a chance on still being able to get them at the door on the night.

Tuesday 1 and Wednesday 2 May. Upstairs at Civic Pub, 8 Lonsdale Street, Braddon. Doors 7:30pm for 8:00pm show start.

This guy is great, he will be fresh back from a month at the Melbourne comedy Fest so he should be in great form. I thought I was going to miss this show as I cant get to Melbourne this year, but im so happy he is putting on two shows in Canberra. He also has a very funny CD out called Jay Sullivan Whatever Suits, it is available on Itunes.

well worth seeing I know I will go
