“The epitome of sharp wit and masterful joke telling, We’re thrilled to welcome Michael Hing back to Bondi with an hour of raw and hectic comedy that is not to be missed.” – Phil Spencer, Festival Director
Hello, my name is Michael Hing, I host a radio show on triple j, I’m on TV sometimes, and I’m a comedian. This is an hour of my jokes, that are loosely based around the semi-public mental breakdown I had throughout 2020. I had my dream job, got my first proper death threat, tried to fake my own death, and bought a sex doll. None of this is healthy, but large parts of it are very funny. Y’know what they say, no one does a semi-public breakdown like Hing.
Michael Hing is a comedian and little else. He is one half of Hobba & Hing, the Drive show on triple j, through which he has attempted to qualify for the Olympics, been accused of educating people about insurance fraud, and auditioned for Magic Mike: The Stage Show. Before that he worked at The Feed on SBS, where his sketch comedy won an Australian Writer’s Guild Award, garnered over 15 million views online, and was featured in Senate Estimates once. He has performed sold out seasons in Sydney, Melbourne Brisbane and internationally, as well as two very poor runs in Adelaide.
