Garry Starr: Classic Penguins

Literature! Literature! Literature! It might not rhyme with anything but it’s still very important. Having already saved everything else, Garry Starr is back and this time he’s hell-bent on saving books from extinction by performing every Penguin Classic novel ever written. In an hour. Mostly naked (but with flippers).

Following sell-out seasons for his previous shows in London, Edinburgh, Melbourne and Adelaide, your favourite multi-award-winning idiot returns with another anarchic masterclass. Comic wunderkind Starr takes us on a literary adventure through the world’s most iconic works of fiction. From The Little Prince to Moby Dick and everything in between, nothing is safe from being lampooned with the utmost nincompoopery.

Directed by Cal McCrystal and Georgia Murphy


“This simple, stupid and totally idiotic show may be exactly the medicine we all need.”

Beyond the Joke

“From clownish chaos to feats of comic genius”

The Guardian

His tremendous warmth and respect for his audience balance out a childlike urge to create absolute chaos”
