So I Suppose This Is Offensive Now!
Saturday 1st November 2008
Should you really bother giving a homeless guy five pence, when some handy advice would probably be more useful yet equally resented? Does all cultural identity physically suck? Is it sexist to hate women?
Have you spotted the inherent Socratic irony in any of these questions, laughed then secretly given the question more credence than it deserves? We could say 'then this is the show for you!' but that would imply that there may be answers or moralistic respite. There isn't but it is very funny. So I Suppose This Is Offensive Now!, released by Universal Pictures Ltd on 17th November 2008, is the show that won Brendon Burns the coveted if.comedy Award at the Edinburgh Festival in 2007.
After a series of sold-out runs at the festival, this was the one that everyone was talking about. Controversial, shocking and explosive, the Aussie shouts and rants against particular age-long stereotypes and gains a whole new army of devoted fans. Brendon's style of comedy is described as edgy, aggressive and provocative as well as continually absorbing; he challenges your preconceptions and encourages debate while making you laugh (or wince!).
Brendon Burns is a veteran stand up comic having been on the circuit since the 1990's. His TV credits include a stint as host on the spontaneous comedy programme The Eleven O'Clock Show (Channel 4) and appearing (albeit briefly!) as a presenter on I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here Now! (ITV2).
He has stormed audiences the world over with his electric performances and is fast becoming a cult comic. The So I Suppose This Is Offensive Now DVD shocks and entertains in the same breath and is a must-have for any true 'stand-up' comedy fan.
