Bowls Club Jazz

MEDIA RELEASE

Bowls Club Jazz

A Kiwi and an Aussie walk into a bar. That bar was Fringe Bar, and this is no joke. It's Bowls Club Jazz. A whirlwind of comedy, music and mayhem from two blokes you've probably never heard of. The Slow Diagonals are a music comedy duo based in Melbourne, Australia. They comprise of Kieran Bullock, an actor/writer/comedian from Christchurch, and Callum McDonald, an actor and musician hailing from Tasmania. The pair met in 2006 during a production of Shakespeare's Love's Labour's Lost at the University of Melbourne, and forged a friendship and professional partnership that would see them eventually take over the Melbourne University Shakespeare Company and oversee the production of four successful shows.

Their latest creation is Bowls Club Jazz, a mad hour of musical comedy that combines McDonald's musical talent and Bullock's absurdist comic sensibilities. Sitting somewhere between Flight of the Conchords and Tenacious D, they promise to deliver a show that tackles the big issues, with song topics including: public transport, drinking and baking.

Armed with nothing more than a guitar, a tambourine, a recorder, a couple of mics, a Lift Plus, and a songbook bursting with lunacy, Bowls Club Jazz will be an epic hour of musical mayhem from two seasoned pros.
