Buckle up Penticton, for an Australian comedy lineup, you must see to believe!
Chris “The Bloke” Franklin is one of Australia’s premier comedy stars. He’s an Aussie bloke, a yobbo or a bogan, from his flannelette shirt to his double plugger thongs. His ‘Hoganesque’ style of comedy appeals to every average Australian and touches on the delicate issues of beer, sport and relationships – he’s also had a number 1 hit single entitled ‘Bloke’. Not bad for someone who can’t sing.
Chris has performed with such comedy legends as: Jimeoin, Steady Eddy, Garry Who, Carl Barron, Anh Do, Dave Hughes, Elliot Goblet, Raymond J Bartholomew, Marty Fields, The Empty Pockets, Peter Rowsthorn, Bob Franklin, Ross Daniels, Tom Green, Jim Jeffries, Stevie Starr, Mr Methane, and rock bands, The Angels, Rose Tattoo, The Screaming Jets, Yothu Yindi and The Radiators. He has even worked with international music stars like Santana, Chris Isaak, Elvis Costello, Boz Scaggs, Status Quo, Tony Joe White & Bonnie Raitt.
Chris has also done five ‘TOURS OF DUTY’, travelling to The Solomon Island, East Timor, Iraq and twice to Afghanistan, to entertain the Aussie troops and help keep their spirits high. Chris has also performed around the world, in Scotland, Singapore, Hong Kong, New Zealand, New Guinea, The United Arab Emirates, Malaysia and America. Chris has headlined and Mc’d every major comedy club in Australia and quite a few around the world. He is regarded by his peers as one of the best in the business.
Chris will be joined by Ned Townsend. Ned is what happens when you photocopy Orlando Bloom and the printer runs out of ink.
