Educomedy For Staff and Conferences


As well as researching the peculiarities of your school or organisation, Damian will muse on his own experiences. He'll comment on everything from the pitfalls of teachers dancing at school socials to dealing with the catholic guilt of leaving extras. He'll provide solutions to the gridlock in sick bay and may even have some advice for those who can't put a face to a name at parent teacher interviews. Damian's ability to get to the heart of the organisation he's speaking to via observation and research adds a personal touch that leaves audiences wanting more.

Damian has created levity at everything from librarian awards nights to union rallies; Religious education conferences to PD days; Universities to Kindergartens. Read the list of schools he has performed at and you'll see that 'Hogworts' is one of the few boxes he hasn't ticked.


Damian is the perfect MC for educational events as he effortlessly creates a rapport with students; staff; parents and guests. He has MC'd launches; award ceremonies and celebrations deftly balancing the smooth running of the occasion with his humorous slant that keeps the mood buoyant through the sometimes more serious side of the event.


Damian began adapting this solo show for staff professional development days; conferences and staff meetings with much success following its award winning seasons at The Melbourne Fringe (1999) and Melbourne Comedy Festival (2000).

These days, if requested, Damian tailors an abridged version of the show with Headmaster Henry Vestige MC'ing some edited highlights from the most recent 'St Basils Speech Night' to augment the entertainment at your event. Within this Damian includes material related to your event and or organsiation.

The abridged show features liturgical dance; a blessing by octagenarian Irish chaplain; highlights from the year 10 Drama Eisteddfod and keynote speeches from famed alumni including ex-fringe AFL player Troy Carrington and a would be Broadway star now happy to shred his old school tie.
