Marty Sheargold, co-host of Australia’s #1 national drive show Kate, Tim & Marty, and a regular face on Network 10’s Have You Been Paying Attention?, is returning to the stage for a national stand-up comedy tour.
Sheargold broke the news firstly on his Nova drive show on Monday afternoon and then again later in the evening during an appearance on Have You Been Paying Atttention?
Over 1.5 million listeners tune in to Kate, Tim & Marty each afternoon from 4pm-6pm on the Nova Network, and now after a hiatus, Marty Sheargold is returning to stand-up for a full national comedy tour from October 2019.
When he told his radio audience, Marty warned his colleagues Kate and Tim the announcement was not a stitch-up, or a sketch or a prank. When asked about his Adelaide show by Kate Ritchie, Marty said: “Me and U2 always do Adelaide.”
Marty suggested that people buy their tickets now. “I am on holidays in two weeks and I want to be able to relax.
“I am positioning this like a farewell Johnny Farnham-style tour to try and get some interest around the fact this could be the last time I ever do stand-up. It could be a farewell tour.”
• “Marty Sheargold is hilarious, one of the smartest and funniest you’ll ever see” Lawrence Mooney
• “Good news people, one of my all-time favourite stand-up comedians is back in business. See you there…” Mick Molloy”
• “Whether on television, radio or stage, Marty would have to be one of my all time favourite performers” Tom Gleisner
