Martin Pearson + Chrisalis @ The Loaded Dog
8PM, Saturday 22nd June, 2013 - doors open 7.40pm

Martin Pearson is a very funny satirical performer. He has been amusing, even thrilling audiences around the globe for ages now, and if you haven't seen him live - you're missing out. Martin tickles the funny bone. The act is full of scintillating satire and all round gutbusting hoots. In common with great comedians like Connolly, Jerry Seinfield and Bill Cosby, he has an ability to take current events and observations of everyday life, and turn them into side splitting comedy routines. Comments by critics include: You will love Martin for his quick wit in his political and social satire, some of which is a vehicle for his easy folk singing, self-accompanied on guitar. Pearson is a seasoned trouper of the folk festival circuit and he reveres few sacred cows, neither Prime Minister nor Pope, all are grist to Pearson's musical mill and get the treatment from his creative pen. He is a good yarn-spinner, and time passes quickly, as it does when you're having fun.


Chrisalis gives flight to a new trio - Christina Mimmocchi, Sallyanne Brown and Lisa Cartwright. They sing in sparkling, unaccompanied three-part harmony and, more magpie than butterfly-like, collect shiny songs from all over the place to build their repertoire. Expect some traditional songs from Australia and Europe as well as more recent but timeless songs by Tom Waits, Leonard Cohen and Andrew Bird.
