Bathurst Library has achieved a comedic coup that will see much-loved characters The Sandman and Flacco brought back to life in Bathurst!
On Friday 1 July, the library will host “The Rhymes, Reasons and Rhythms of The Sandman & Flacco”, where Steve Abbott and Paul Livingston will revive their flamboyant alter egos who achieved cult status on Triple J, Good News Week and The Fat in the 80s and 90s.
During this highly entertaining performance, Steve “The Sandman” Abbott and Paul “Flacco” Livingston will use words, music, and musings to exhume the scattered remains of their own characters that ‘passed away’ quietly in 2011 due to the deadly affliction known as ‘irrelevance’. In this touching tribute to themselves, Steve and Paul will revive the quirky characters who “left no offspring, no will and no forwarding address and have survived by the skin of their teeth, elevated toilet seats and the aged pension”.
Manager Library Services, Patou Clerc, said the library is delighted to host these two legends of Australian comedy. “Paul and Steve are talented wordsmiths and comedy masters who have both gone on to carve amazing careers in film, TV and writing,” she said. “Their return to the stage in an intimate setting is an opportunity not to be missed.”
A free event, “The Rhymes, Reasons and Rhythms of The Sandman & Flacco” will be held on Friday 1 July at Bathurst Library, 70-78 Keppel Street, and will begin at 6pm. Spaces are limited, and bookings are essential. Secure your spot by calling the Library on 6333 6281.
