MICF Review: The Morning After

Last week we were invited to check out Evan Hocking’s 2017 Melbourne Comedy Festival Show – The Morning After, basically, his ode to the next day fear one experiences after only the largest of nights…., you know, the whole – ‘what have you done’ scenario.

The show started with some short banter with the audience and then we were transported to tropical Port Douglas, which made us first think of sea, great barrier reef.

However, a young man nicknamed “Buddha” (Evan Hocking), then walked us through the gradual piecing together of a big night out with friends and the ensuing consequences, with a remembered flashback to his Dad’s words “If you do something wrong, you have to pay the consequences”!

Interwoven with short snippets about his family, his education, his friends, society’s fascination with reality TV, his breakup with his long-term girlfriend and the culture of a small town in Port Douglas, Evan took us on a carefully crafted and compelling tale of alcohol-fuelled misadventure.

What the hell happened last night?

Evan’s gentle, self-deprecating humor and hilarious narrative cleverly drew us in. His show “The Morning After” is one you wont want to miss.

Evan will be preforming on Sunday 16th and Sunday 23rd April @ Hotel Barkly at 5.30pm time slot. So, don’t miss out as it is an amazing way to end the weekend.
