I saw Tom Ballard’s show at the Mielbourne International Comedy Festival on Monday 11 April 2016.

It’s a great show: an astonishing mixture of comedy and information: information about what we are doing to asylum seekers.

It would have been easy for the show to degenerate into worthiness or “do-goodism”, but it does not.  Instea, it cheers you along and then hits you between the eyes.

It’s a great show.  You should try to catch it, especially if you think the government is doing the right thing with boat people.  It only runs until 17 April, so you will have to be quick.

At the end of the show, there are hand-outs.  I can’t even try to reproduce the hilarity of the show, but here are the handouts:
