A hilarious yet moving coming-of-age story exploring the idiosyncrasies of growing up as an outsider in small-town country Australia.

Hot off the back of a sold-out 2018 Melbourne Fringe, don’t miss “one of the finest emerging comedians in the country” (Sydney Comedy Festival), Jack Gow. As heard on ABC Radio National, Story Club, & SYN’s All The Best.

“Touching on identity politics, notions of traditional masculinity, & the dark lengths individuals will go to in order to belong … what makes Just A Small Town Boy so unique is its surprising poignancy, each hilarious memory tinged with unexpected pathos, often captivating the audience into silence” ★★★★ AltMedia

“Jack Gow possesses an anxious, apologetic eloquence that takes the everyday and makes it quietly marvellous … Just A Small Town Boy is a bittersweet experience, a highly amusing but subtly complex hour by a talented wordsmith” ★★★★ The Music
