Comedy

SPEED

The Movie, The Play

Dates

WED 30 SEPTEMBER–SAT 17 OCTOBER, 2015
Presented by Brisbane Powerhouse and Act/React

Don’t miss the return season of this Brisbane Comedy Festival 2015 stand out!

There’s a bomb on a bus. If the bus drops below 50 miles an hour, it blows up. What do you do? What do you do?!

Climb aboard our vintage B59 Volvo for this shameless homage to the 1994 action thriller Speed, the film which proved once and for all the best drama is on public transport.

After a sold-out season at the 2015 Brisbane Comedy Festival, the bus is back for another trip down the highway of 90s nostalgia.

Warning: contains Hollywood-ish special effects and jokes about Keanu Reeves’ career.

Important: The meeting place for Speed: The Movie, The Play is signed outside Brisbane Powerhouse. Unfortunately as it takes place on a vintage bus, it is not wheelchair accessible. Drinks are also not allowed on the bus. We apologise for any inconvenience.

Inspired by
Pop culture / superheroes / grungy comedies / sketch comedy / absurd humour / toilet humour
Known for
Brisbane Comedy Festival 2015 / He Died With a Felafel in His Hand (Brisbane Powerhouse, 2013)

Reviews

A short, loud, bold show, packed full of wonderfully silly special effects and funny famous one-liners.

I am in awe of these guys; there’s little I love more than a crazy idea backed by people nutty and committed enough to pull it off. And my, my, my, have they ever!
