Frank Woodley

I, Woodley

Presented by Brisbane Comedy Festival and Token Events

Frank Woodley’s new show tells the story of the disastrous month leading up to opening night.

An escalating series of misadventures that come thick and fast and threaten to derail the show and destroy Frank’s sanity.

His ten-year-old son thinks he’s a dick potato, (which turns out to be similar to a dictator but more of a dick and more of a potato), and his wife is very unsupportive of his decision to get a tattoo of the Deli Lama (similar to the Dalai Lama but with more cheeses).

Frank’s forgotten how to be funny … and is all the funnier for it.

A Frank Woodley show is always a special treat for comedy fans. Whimsical, unpredictable, ultra-physical and at times hysterical, Frank continues to delight all with his nonsense-genius…but heavy on the nonsense.

Last year he entertained audiences around Australia both big and small (in stature that is) with not one, but two live shows; one for adults, Extra Ordinary and his very first show for kids, Noodlenut. Needless to say, both scored five-star reviews. Meanwhile, Frank’s fiction book series for children, Kizmet also continues to impress with a new book being added to the popular series within the year.

A true legend of Australian comedy, don’t miss the country’s most-loved professional show off back on stage in 2017.


Arguably Australia’s greatest physical comedian doing what he does best….Five stars is simply not enough.
