Marcus Ryan – Walk This Qué

April 10 @ 7:30 pm - April 22 @ 8:30 pm

$15 - $20

In 2017 Marcus was asked to do a show in Spain, and as they say, a funny thing happened on the way to the gig… he missed the bus so decided to start walking. Only thing is, it was on the other side of the country, some 1,000km away!
But what REALLY makes a person walk across a country? Religious pilgrimage? To find themselves? Fitness reasons? Or simply couldn’t afford a plane ticket? 

From the creator of the award-shortlisted stand-up show and hit of 2017 ¿Hablas Inglés?, Marcus Ryan (award-winning storyteller ‘The Moth’) takes us on another epic adventure, Walk This Qué

Join Australia’s most well-travelled comedian on a poetic journey of great proportions – and even greater portions of bread – as he tackles Camino de Santiago Compostela. 40 days on foot on a diet of pastry and wine, in search of answers, but mostly in search of a hot shower and Wi-Fi passwords as he meets some weird and wonderful characters along “the way”.
Marcus Ryan has toured the world, performing in 42 countries, climbed mountains, fallen down volcanoes and hitchhiked his way through continents, but nothing could prepare him for this physical and mentally challenging adventure. Faced with injuries, language barriers, running bulls, elderly French people snoring, not to mention bed bugs, borrowed shoes, stolen sticks and a broken backpack, this is a tale you’ll want to hear!

‘Walk This Qué’ is the EAT, PRAY, WALK of Comedy.

Direct from a tour of Europe & Asia, this will be Marcus’s only festival appearance on home soil for 2018 before returning to North America. Be quick. Grab your tickets now, tell your friends, family, co-workers & enemies! 12 shows only.
