Live Ideas and Blue Mountains Theatre present
with James Valentine & H.G Nelson
ABC’s hilarious radio show- but after dark! And in a theatre!
Direct from sell out seasons in Sydney, ABC’s James Valentine tours his wildly funny stage show to Springwood in August.
James Valentine exists in the grey fringes of your memory. He did ABC TV kids telly in the 80s, he was in the hit Australian band Models, and he’s been on some shockers of TV shows that even he can’t remember.
But what he’s actually been up to for the last 20 years is talk radio on ABC Radio Sydney. He’s been on air for two decades and his Afternoons show is like no other. It’s funny, but not just because he’s funny – it’s his callers. They are hilarious. They’re bizarre, and they tell him all the weird stuff that happens in their life.
James will share his best, worst and most intriguing callers from his Afternoons radio show, and then he’ll turn it over to you for a live session of talkback theatre that will bring out the strange, the wonderful and the hilarious sitting right there in the room.|
“I love JV and his callers. My favourite radio driven laughs of the day…” – Julia Zemiro
“James Valentine makes me laugh so hard, that I do that barky laugh where people think you are unwell…#mustsee #mustbark ” – Julia Morris
Experience all the hilarity of James Valentine’s Afternoon radio program from ABC Radio Sydney. Expect live versions of such legendary segments as This Is What I Live With, Ex, The New Normal and Petty Crime Stoppers…they’ll all be there. Who knows, maybe he’ll even attempt…Nothing.
James will be joined by the legendary HG Nelson for a specially convened Springwood meeting of the Even Greater Sydney Planning Committee. The EGSPC is the body that oversees all other planning bodies in Sydney. James and HG bring a vision splendid to Sydney planning so expect further insights into how the new airport can also be a Centre of Excellence for Rugby League and what it will take to turn the Scenic Railway into a major transport corridor.
You’ll laugh, you’ll crack up and you’ll have something to talk about all weekend!
No one looks at the world quite like James Valentine, and just when you think it can’t get any better, it does. Afternoons Tonight! is a fantastically funny and interactive night at the theatre and a great insight into how this radio show really works!
James Valentine is one of Australia’s most loved radio presenters and in a long and eclectic career has worked as a journalist, author, television host and musician. A saxophonist, he has performed with many acclaimed acts including: Jo Jo Zep, Models and Absent Friends. James also hosts the ABC Podcast Head Room which expands on musings and questions posed during James’ Afternoons radio show from 1-3pm weekdays on ABC Radio Sydney and NSW.
