After two years of groundbreaking, award winning comedy dealing with the personal and global effects of COVID 19, PAUL + 1 return with their new show BLOOD ORANGE. A dynamic and awe-inspiring collection of verbal and musical absurdity.

A conceptual odyssey chronicling, (through comedy, song, and liturgical dance) the bizarre world we find ourselves in. No stone is left unturned as Paul, and his unnamed collaborator, walk through the fires of a contemporary hell-scape to bring joy to others, and a smile to face of the living. Controversial, bleak, and hilarious – Join Paul + 1 for a delightfully dark journey towards the light.

Australian comedy legend Paul McDermott has been fighting tyranny, injustice, and ennui for over 40 years, armed only with comedy and a pretty voice. Paul McDermott Plus One is the brainchild of Australian comedy legend Paul McDermott (Doug Anthony All Stars/Good News Week/THE SIDESHOW/JJJ). Onstage, the maestro is joined by Glenn Moorhouse, the “plus one”, Tasmanian born musical director, guitarist, and comrade. The mix of Paul’s angelic choir boy vocals with Glenn’s signature vitriolic incision they create an unmissable evening of fervour and delight.
