Prop comedy is a rare and unusual art-form that takes a huge amount of skill, ability, and a liberal mix of genius and timing to make it work well. On Friday night one of Australia’s most seasoned veterans in the artform, Mark Pengilly, will be performing at Speakeasy Nuevo’s presentation of Cinema, Stand up and Burlesque. Along with a line up of four indie films, presented by their creators, and seven stand-up comedians including Mr Pengilly, and a chaser of burlesque acts, Mark’s presentation is tipped to be a stand alone that few can follow!
We took the brilliant inventor aside for a brief moment and asked him a bunch of questions to try and understand what’s in store for our fans this Friday night!
Who are you and where do you come from
Me…just south of mum’s belly button/ Glenelg S.A.
Name a comedian you’d love to meet (dead or alive) and where would you go with them if you had one day to kill with them?
Myself…after I’m dead because I’d have to be alive again to make this meeting possible. We’d go to a ‘reanimation non believers’ meeting and spend the whole day saying: “See?!!”
What’s your biggest achievement as a comedian?
What will you be performing at Speakeasy Nuevo on July 25th?
Comedy.(Audience sense of humour permitting)
