Damien Power

Sell Mum Into Slavery


TUE 01–SUN 06 MARCH, 2016


Presented by Brisbane Powerhouse and Token Events

Hometown hero Damien Power makes a triumphant return to the Brisbane Comedy Festival following a massive 2015.

He was nominated for the Barry Award (Best Show Melbourne Comedy Festival), toured the country and has industry insiders calling him the next big thing in Australian Comedy.

In Sell Mum into Slavery Damien asks big questions about the world and ponders the answers in a thought provoking and assured style that impresses and entertains the hell out of his audience. His comedy has been described as existential and philosophical at times but, most importantly, hilarious.

NOMINATED Best Show, Melbourne Comedy Festival 2015
