It’s a grey and uneasy place, and my memories of it are depressed and tangled, distraught and muddled. My family would always talk of the good times they had growing up there,…

The Sydney Comedy Store always offers up amazing acts. Whether they’re well-known comics or up and comers, I always end up having a ball and also a good few hearty, knee-slapping, clap-inducing laughs. With Urzila Carlson’s stand-up routine Poise Control, there was no exception, except, well, for the fact that it was completely different. Urzila’s…

  If you have been in the Sydney theatre scene long enough, the PACT Centre for Emerging Artists is probably a household name by now.
