Dave Eastgate “No Brainer”
Dave has done some dumb shit. Although he’s an internationally acclaimed stand-up comedian, speaks three languages and is the star of ABC1’s new comedy series, The Elegant Gentleman’s Guide to Knife Fighting, he’s done some seriously dumb shit! Think of the dumbest thing you’ve done and watch him top it! Following his internationally acclaimed sell out shows, I wish I had a Band and Rock N’ Roll Glory Hole, the enigmatic frontman and guitarist for Boner Contention unplugs the amps for his rawest, bravest and funniest show yet!
Dave Eastgate’s Rock N’ Roll Glory Hole
Following on from his 2011 smash hit “I Wish I Had a Band” Dave Eastgate’s wish becomes a reality with his brand new show “Dave Eastgate’s Rock N’ Roll Glory Hole!” Backed by the irrepressible 4 piece band, ‘Boner Contention’, Eastgate thrusts his pineapple-juice-fuelled-rock into the cubicle of your life with his unique blend of stand up and balls out, ROCK N’ ROFL!

Written by David Eastgate and Directed by Benjamin Knapton
Gaijin is a visually stunning one-man show about the journey of an Australian traveller in contemporary Japan written by David Eastgate and directed by Benjamin Knapton.
Gaijin or ‘foreigner’ is an adrenalin pumped, fractured narrative that explores the journey of a young Australian negotiating an unfamiliar culture. The story begins with our protagonist Chris, incarcerated in Tokyo’s Fuchu Prison and oscillates between memory and reality to reveal the events leading to his arrest and imprisonment. Presented through the eyes of multiple characters, the performance raises questions about our moral and cultural responsibilities in an increasingly globalised world. The aesthetic integration of technology, staging and live performance captures the instability and strangeness of life in a foreign country as experienced by the Australian gaijin.
