"BRUTALLY amusing" - HERALD SUN
I know what you’re thinking: beach riots, national interventions, immigrants, professional aborigines, and blacked-up faces; very sensible topics for a comedy show!
Tristan's debut comedy show, Australian Ghost, was perverse as it was brilliant, combining character acting, new media and stand-up comedy to present a unique, disturbing, and hilarious take on race relations in Australia. Tristan showcased three satirical characters: Edward Stevenson, a British settler from 1860; Frederick Alford an Indigenous social worker from the Australian Department of Discrimination Prevention; and Darren Taylor, a xenophobic bogan, draped in the national flag.
From humble experimental beginnings in Townsville’s Cowshed Theatre, Australian Ghost went on to become a smash hit at La Boite’s Festival of Australian Student Theatre 2010, and then at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival 2012.
