THE Clarence Valley could be considered honoured to be included on international comedy star David Strassman's Australian Tour next year, but as the tour name suggests - Careful What You Wish For .
The 21-date tour in February and March includes shows at the Saraton Theatre, Grafton and the Yamba Bowling Club.
Chuck Wood's sharp-tongued, caustic, sarcastic humour might have been cracking up audiences for years, but this show is said to be an even funnier, darker, all-new creation from the twisted mind of David Strassman.
Strassman's new show truly ventures down the rabbit hole.
Alternate realities? Parallel universes? It's a mind-bending journey into a world where nothing is as it seems.
Strassman returns after a hit season at the Edinburgh Fringe with the dark psychological comedy Duality.
The show was a sensation in Edinburgh, with The Mirror giving it five stars, calling it "A fabulous achievement … mind blowing".
Chortle.co.uk called it "supremely clever ... faultlessly performed".
The List said: "Absolute genius. The writing is truly superb and the performance - or should that be performances? - breath-taking in linguistic and ventriloquistic dexterity. Takes the ancient art of ventriloquism up several notches."
Considered by many to be the best ventriloquist in the world, Strassman's shows are hilariously funny and razor-sharp, featuring full stage production complete with dazzling sets and state-of-the-art theatrical effects.
His shows involve multiple characters and high-tech puppetronics (robotics) that bring his characters to life, even when he has left the stage.
