Australia’s favourite absurd sketch group, Aunty Donna, is bringing their first-ever live tour to the UK and Ireland after the success of their Netflix series. This will be their first visit to the UK in over five years, and they are scheduled to perform in Glasgow, Dublin, Bath, Birmingham, London, and Manchester.
The trio’s partnership with Netflix for the release of “Aunty Donna’s Big Ol’ House of Fun,” executive produced by Ed Helms and Scott Aukerman, received critical acclaim and praise from fans worldwide, including Neil Patrick Harris and RuPaul. After a record-breaking tour of Australia and New Zealand, the group is eager to take their new show to the rest of the world.
The Aunty Donna boys said:
“When the Magical Dead Cat demanded we participate in this incredible tour of the UK and Ireland, a tour showcasing brand new hilarious comedy and some fan favourite bits from our world-shaking Netflix series, we were initially hesitant. It seemed we would provide the bulk of the entertainment whilst the Magical Dead Cat would merely bring some coughed up fur balls!’ ‘We raised our concerns with the Magical Dead Cat, and it offered to sweeten the deal by ending each show with a special surprise web slinging guest whose name rhymes with Glider Man. Desperate to meet this special surprise guest, we immediately said yes.”
In 2012, Aunty Donna burst onto the Melbourne comedy scene with their distinctively surreal, fast-paced, and alternative style of sketch comedy. Between 2014 and 2017, they won over audiences in the UK with their loud and high-energy performances at the Edinburgh Festival and Soho Theatre. Their shows have since traveled the world multiple times, earning them numerous awards and a massive following of over 2 million fans across various platforms, as well as 113 million views on YouTube.
Now, the trio of Mark Samual Bonanno, Broden Kelly, and Zachary Ruane are coming together to bring their wildly entertaining brand of comedy to audiences across England, Scotland, and Ireland on a new tour.
