Bespoken Word

On the fourth Thursday of the month from 7:30pm in The Green Room | Entry $13
Comedian John Knowles (IMPROZAC, John Knowles is Saddle Sore, Impro Australia, ABC Radio, Sydney Comedy Festival) and writer Kate Iselin (Penthouse, The Guardian, The Sydney Morning Herald, The Saturday Paper, Thirty Dates of Tinder) bring together a handful of Sydney’s most interesting and exciting comedians, writers, entertainers, notable personalities, and celebrity mates for a brand-new evening of scripted and unscripted storytelling!
The first half of the evening, hosted by Kate Iselin, sees our guests telling short, pre-written stories which the audience will later vote on to see who takes home the mystery prize. This month, we have asked our guests to tell us about a time they were scared.
The second half of the evening is hosted by John Knowles and based on his successful Comedy Festival show and ABC Radio staple ‘I Can Top That’. A whole new panel of guests take the stage to tell completely true yet totally unprepared stories based on suggestions from the audience, from the other guests, and from John himself.
Some stories will be shocking, others embarrassing, insightful, sweet or just plain hilarious. It’s a smorgasbord of real life adventures and raw revelations with an emphasis on vulnerability, confession and laughter. Staged at the cosy Petersham Bowling Club, known for its welcoming community and artsy offerings, Bespoken Word aims to create a friendly modern version of traditional parlour entertainment.
