Recording for Posterity

Press release time!

Amazon today shared the first trailer for ten Australian Amazon Original stand-up specials that will be coming to Prime Video in Australia and around in the more than 200 countries and territories. The roster of award-winning and nominated comedians includes Lano & Woodley, Zoë Coombs Marr, Judith Lucy, Tommy Little, Anne Edmonds, Tom Walker, Celia Pacquola, Dilruk Jayasinha, Alice Fraser and Tom Gleeson. The Australian Amazon Original stand-up specials are produced by Guesswork Television and were filmed in Melbourne at the Malthouse Theatre.

The Australian Amazon Original stand-up specials is exclusively coming to Amazon Prime Video from April 10, with two specials being released each week over a five week period.

That’s actually a pretty impressive line-up – kudos to Amazon for having the cash nous to put together a pretty decent snapshot of the top tier of local stand up. And Tom Gleeson.

Networks doing a series or two of stand up specials are nothing new – Stan had their “One Night Stan” season a few years ago, and before that ABC2 did two seasons of The Warehouse Comedy Festival. But they’re always handy to have around; stand up is one of the few areas left where Australian comedians can really do their own thing for an extended period, and putting their work on television is a reminder of how most of the rest of our televised comedy really is pretty dull.

Especially if you’re watching Tom Gleeson.
