Smirk From Home
Comedy and Content - from our lounge room to yours
A cadre of competent, compelling, courageous comedians cunningly curated by comic commissars Jacques Barrett and Damian Smith.
Smirk From Home beams comic content directly to your device of choice, possibly through satellites, so that you can rock-down your lockdown.
What, you're not locked down any more? Give it time (looking at you, Melbourne)
But SFH is not restricted merely to sheltering in place, our comic content can keep you content wherever you choose to hunker down, or flaunt your out-and-aboutness. You do you.
Comedy, podcasts, sketches, videos, telegrams, psychic distress calls, memes, blogs, panel discussions and more. If you've got a comic itch, we're the nails to scratch it (non-creepy metaphors extra)
Have you ever found yourself bleeding out in the woods, faced with bankruptcy, not meeting your fitness goals, locked down in Covid, or a number of other sticky situations? Quite the pickle, wouldn't you say? Well, fortunately the team has you covered with this fun and informative poddy.
Comics Jacques Barrett and Emma Zammit think up a terrible scenario, interview a professional who could help, then do stand up about it. 90% real advice, 10% cautionary example, 100% fun.
WHAT DID YOU DO DURING COVID-19?
Because we wrote a book.
Professional stand-up comedians for over 15 years, festival firebrand Damian Smith and road-dog veteran Jacques Barrett combine forces to explore the how, why and when of the art of stand-up comedy.
The Book on Comedy is...well...the book on comedy. It is an exhaustive exploration of the science and mechanics behind the craft, the history of stand-up, the psychology of jokes and much more. If you've ever wondered why we laugh, why some words are funnier than others, and why the chicken crossed the road then it's all here.
