My Family's Weirder Than Your Family
“Hilarious… An unforgettable experience.” (Beat Magazine)
Josh Earl has a weird family. You think your family is weird? They’re nothing compared to Josh’s. From a dad who can’t read maps, a mum who can’t be spoken to her when her TV shows are on, a nan who needs table manners, and a dog that burps bubbles. And don’t get him started on his brother...
From the award-winning comedian and host of Spicks and Specks comes a show just for kids. (Alright, adults can come – but you have to behave!)
It’s family-friendly mayhem with songs, stand-up, and cartoons, bound to have everyone in stitches.
