Bailey on Board

  
As Speakeasy HQ continues to scour the country for the finest acts in all genre’s, this Saturday night’ headline act will be one of the finest examples of slapstick ever seen. 

Presenting the incredibly popular Sam Brew, along with his partner in crime, Bailey Munton, as they perform their critically acclaimed Circus in a Suitcase, the duo are tipped to amaze!! 

So we took Mr Munton aside and asked him a bunch of questions as he prepares his stick for slap, and readies his physical comedy for this Saturday night and we asked him a bunch of questions. 

Who are you and what do you do? 

My name is bailey And I’m a professional juggler and circus performer. 

How did you learn your skills and what’s your most epic training/learning story? 

I was doing a tumbling trick and my intent was to do a simple punch frontsault and instead of nearly under rotating like I usually do. My body over rotated and nearly managed to pull a straight double frontsault from ground. 

If you could spend one day with one person, living or dead, who would it be and what would you do with them? 

I would juggle all day with Anthony Gatto who is considered the ultimate jugglers juggler. Then I might have a hot tub and a cool chat for a while because why the hell not  

If the Melbourne council erected a statue in honour of you In 100 years time, what pose would your statue be holding and what would the plaque read? 

My plaque would read thusly “in memory of Bailey Munition. Just an all rounder cool dude. Is frosty sizzle shall not been seen for many a century to come. 

What will you be performing on Saturday night at Speakeasy HQ?

I will be performing a suite case act with a close friend Sam (his title) and it is going to rock your socks off.

Sam in a Suitcase

 

After making a massive entrance I to the world of professional vaudeville, the circus, slapstick and illusionist protege Sam Brew is set to return to the stage at Speakeasy HQ to headline this Sarurday night with his hilarious show – Circus in a Suitcase!

After debuting the side splitting and incredibly talented performance, Circus in a Suitcase, at Speakeasy HQ late in 2014, Sam and his sidekick, Bailey Munton, return for the two man show this Saturday night. 

So as the duo prepares to wow yet another capacity crowd at the underground galaxy of stars this weekend we took aside the mastermind of physical comedy and asked Sam Brew what makes him tick!!

Who are you and what do you do?

My name is Sam Brew. I am 19 and I am a circus performer and magician… And occasionally perform street theatre. 

How did you learn your skills and what’s your most epic training/learning story? 

I am a student and a coach at RUCCIS circus school in kylsyth. But when I was 8 I learnt how to make a coin disappear. From that day on I just kept trying to learn more magic. I can’t really think of a training story. I have managed to face planted a fair bit whilst practicing new ideas.  

If you could spend one day with any person from history, who would it be and what would you do with them?

I would spend the day with Harry Houdini and we would do an awesome magic/escape act! 

If the Melbourne council erected a statue in honour of you In 100 years time, what pose would your statue be holding and what would the plaque read?

My pose would be me standing on a giant red ball. And the plaque would read “this statue is in memory of Sam Brew, who is so much cooler than that Bailey guy” or something like that.

What will you be performing at Speakeasy HQ this Saturday night?

With out giving too much away, I will be performing some physical comedy with my partner Bailey as we unfold a slapstick adventure on stage.

Where Can We Find Funny?

At Speakeasy HQ it has to be said that we pride ourselves on finding the brightest shining stars in the Underground Galaxy to present show after show to our aspiring audiences. Each show, as we present over 30 different artists, it’s a fierce competition for any single act to cut apart and make a life-changing impact on our audiences. However, one such act has just gone ahead and done exactly that, and left them laughing until their sides hurt!! 
After a lifetime of travelling and performing relentlessly at every comedy room in the country, Luke Leonard has emerged as one of the most popular acts to hit the Speakeasy HQ stage in recent times. With relatable comedy, along with a calm but shockingly funny delivery style and a knowledge of how his audience relate to him, he has been able to leave back to back audiences rolling in their seats time and time again!!  But what is it that makes a comic like this tick? How does anyone conceive jokes like he does and then deliver them to a live audience. We took this wordsmith aside and threw a stack of questions at him to see what makes him tick as he prepares his puns and readies his schtick for this Saturday night’s show!

Who are you and what do you do?

My name is Luke Leonard, and I am a stand up comedian. Ask r what I do… I guess I take my own misunderstandings of interactions and spew them forth for the pleasure of my audience. My humour kind of centres around failure, words and the failure of words. I’d say more, but words fail me. 

How long have you been performing comedy? 

I have been performing stand up for 2 and a half years, preceded by a decade in rock and roll. In bands I primarily played the buffoon. It’s a long story. 
What was your first performance and how did it go?

It was in Ms Fernandes’ music class, back in 1997. I was expelled. Then there was a big gap until Raw comedy 2013, at the comics lounge. It went pretty well for a first shot. I knew I had something when I made the MC spit his drink.

If you could be remembered for one thing, what would it be and how would you be remembered?

Talking. Incessantly and with authority on a wide range of topics about which I know very little. The how depends on who’s remembering and whether they think I was funny or tiresome.

What will you be performing on Saturday at Speakeasy HQ?

I will be performing tales of everyday, accessible, family friendly filth and blasphemy. You know – usual stuff. 

Don’t miss your chance to see the outstanding comedy of Luke Leonard live at Speakeasy HQ this Saturday night!!!
