SA Premiere

I Got Bit By A Monkey Once...

Comedy / Stand Up
Scaled tmima 800
After sell out shows, the storytelling sensation comes to Adelaide for the first time. 5 true stories: A Monkey, a Bus Trip, a Fire, an Arrest and a Mugging. A storytelling/stand up show; think of it like 'Eat, Pray, Love' if nobody learned anything significant and all the 'eat' part happened in a McDonald's.

A story telling show to be taken aurally.

"The commentary was so easily strung together with good humour" Squirrel Comedy

"We left laughing, and also wiser about our place in the world" The Plus Ones

"A great example of a comedian managing to make light of particularly troublesome issues, while still carrying the depth of them as to make the viewer aware" Pop Culture-y


“Matt spins his words in such a mesmerising way and with great stage presence, one cannot help but be invested in his life stories”
Zhygi Shimkus,

Presented by:
Matt Harvey

Matt Harvey is a comedian and writer (The Leak, Quiz night). Having previously done many different things, Shakespeare, A child's musical pirate, puppeteer, physical theatre, he even played a tree once (it was a cool puppet but still).
But after a director told him "You're really suited to comedy" (the play was not a comedy) it seemed like a comfortable fit. Having toured Australia for many years writing and creating original shows full of observations from the unreliability of memory to the weirdness of choosing to wear a mullet. Matt is bringing a storytelling show of personal events to the wider world.
