    FOUR STARS FROM THE HERALD SUN
    " Southern's festival show is called 'Your new favourite comedian' and on this effort it isn't an idle boast.
    This likeable performer's ad libs were quick and clever, covering a range of topics and never really missing a beat..."

    Going by the Gordon Southern flyers that were, um, flying off the table, it’s likely his upcoming shows might have just got a whole lot busier.

    FIVE STARS FROM WHIMSICAL BANANA
    Gordon Southern is a fantastic British comedian who has stolen the limelight and entertained us in Australia for the last ten years. He is a well-known face in the comedy circuit but whom I feel is terribly under appreciated. If the secrets of his hilarity were exposed to the comedy-going public, I’m sure he would be selling out rooms every night.

    Southern is a Hives fan, which some may have already gathered from his outfit, and this is where the show begins. Taking us back to when he was 18, Your New Favourite Comedian is a systemic review of Southern’s life, focusing particularly on the last decade when he started coming to Australia.

    Tales told over the hour brilliantly encapsulate and deliver stories of love, employment and that cockiness that follows us around forever after our first proper job. We also hear of first loves, fourth loves and of the ones who got away.

    In this show Southern plays a character which teaches us some surprisingly alphabetical life lessons. This is the first time I’ve ever seen Southern portray a character but judging by the reaction of the crowd the audience seemed to love it.

    This hour will take you around the world – starting in Essex, going to Australia, almost never leaving Singapore, and finishes off with a more than sweet happy ending – all while systematically removing the rug from under any hecklers who weren’t written in to the show.

    Your New Favourite Comedian is an all-round good show for all audiences which will leave you feeling better about everything.
    It is strongly written, and strongly presented by a well experienced comedian.
