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. He is a favourite at folk festivals all around Australia and on Sunday 24th August you can come to Humph Hall and find out why!

Martin Pearson in Humph Hall

Martin tickles the funny bone. He has an ability to take current events and observations of everyday life, and turn them into side splitting comedy routines. He is also a fine singer & songwriter. Watch a few items from his 2011 show in Humph Hall.

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.

Variety and wit and effortlessly polished vocal performances. Martin has the outstanding ability to engage the audience, swapping banter and taking them on a wonderfully varied trip. One moment there are members of the audience rolling in their chairs and the next, you could hear a pin drop while they're spellbound by a simply sublime performance.
