27 Aug Burnsy Wins If
This is Brendon. He’s an Australian comedian, but not known here as he moved across to the Uk many years ago. He came back to Aus a few years ago to do the Melbourne Comedy Festival, which is when this shot was taken. If you have met Brendon, you dont’ forget him, loud over the top, but once you get past all that he’s a great guy and now a really big award winning guy.
Each year at the Edinburgh Fringe festival they have an award for the best show, it used to be called the Perrier but now it’s call the if.comedy award, and Brendon is the latest recipient! to give you an idea, the last Australians to win the top award was Lano and Woodley, back in 1994, and the new commer was won by Tim Minchin a couple of years ago.
So well done Brendon, let’s hope you can bring the show out to Aus next year!
