Reisebilder Australien (2): Comedy down under…

Nun ja, wenn man ‘down under’ lebt, ist man schon irgendwie lustig. Wie heißt es noch so schön bei den Men at Work:

I come from a land down under
Where beer does flow and men chunder
Can’t you hear, can’t you hear the thunder?
You better run, you better take cover.

Neben den zahlreichen positiven Erfahrungen, die ich in New South Wales machen durfte, zu denen nicht nur äußerst angenehme Begegnungen zählen, sondern beispielsweise auch der Besuch im idyllischen Nationalgebiet des Hawkesbury River, lernte ich ebendort, dass nicht nur in Deutschland die Macher schlechter Comedy in freier Wildbahn ihr Unwesen treiben. Doppelklickst und guckst Du hier, was man aus ‘Hawkesbury River Arts’ so alles machen kann:
