Airdate: Adam Hills: Inflatable

By David Knox on January 15, 2012 / Filed Under Programming 4

To get you into the mood for Gordon Street Tonight, ABC1 screens Adam Hills 2010 stand-up comedy show Inflatable, filmed at Melbourne’s Athenaeum Theatre.

In 2010 Adam Hills celebrated his 21st year of stand-up comedy and his 40th birthday in front of his fans – and fanatics – with a special performance of his critically acclaimed show, Inflatable.

Inflatable is a raucous, poignant and ultimately uplifting show that received five star reviews from Melbourne to Edinburgh, and played to sold-out audiences across the UK, including a one-off performance at the Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre in London.

Accompanied by AUSLAN sign interpreter Leanne Beer, Adam waffles on about the intricacies of sign language, the politeness of the Dutch, prostate awareness, what it feels like to have an ‘old man rant’, and the joy of seeing the Paralympics live.

Of course, no Adam Hills show is complete without including members of the audience, so you’ll also see Debra performing Happy Birthday to Adam in sign language.

Let Adam Hills inflate you with this riotous live show. Joyous. Uplifting. Inflatable.

8:30pm Thursday, 26th January ABC1.
