Here's a bit of information on some of my shows, past & present, as well as a general place for flyers and old promo material to rest.
    Long Story Short is Gordon's brand new show for 2015 - debuting in Adelaide at the 2015 Festival... More info to follow soon!

    Here's the show blurb in the meantime...
    A joyful new shamblegasm from UK favourite Southern. Peerless and fearless improvising and wonderful stand up packed with jokes. Long story, short will debut stories garnered (and some clearly made up) from his travels and adventures throughout the UK and beyond. This is the 11th hour that Gordon has performed as Earth enters it's one. Carbon oops.

  • 2011: Free Range

    Life is like a box of eggs, you never know what you’re going to get. Usually it’s eggs.

    Not so much about eggs, Free Range will allow Gordon to wander through the very best of his stand-up comedy compiled over the last 16 years since he first emerged on to the UK comedy scene.

    And that will certainly be a packed 60 minute show considering just how many shows this prolific comedian has written and performed during his career.

  • 2010: Borders
    Borders come in all shapes and sizes...From huge international ones to tiny ones inside a person's head.

    Gordon Southern brings his unique perspective to the mountain ranges, rivers, rabbit proof fences, state lines, city limits, airport passport controls, lines in the sand, boundaries of good taste and of course the 'fourth wall' that he gleefully breaks down with his engaging, spontaneous style.

    Gordon is rapidly becoming known for his unique style which mixes intelligent analysis of global events and phenomenon with very silly and personal observations, all packaged within a neat narrative.

  • 2006: The Solutions

    Now an established favourite all over the world, direct from the Dubai, Adelaide and Melbourne comedy festivals, Gordon's new show will provide comedy solutions for all your problems and puzzles.
    How to humanely rid your home of a mouse, survive a knife attack from a pair of South London teenagers, fill in a crossword and other pleasant time wasting activities will be given the solutions treatment. There will also be grander ruminations on love happiness, commitment, plus the big one, whether or not there is a God.
