Danny Sgro & Friends unearth the intricacies of society in ‘Cultural Sgropropriation’


Tell us about your show

From the mean streets of Alice Springs come Danny Sgro and Christopher Little. They’re nice guys. They’re gentle. They do comedy.  Danny’s main topic of contention is racism as it affects us in our day to day relationships – romantic and otherwise. Chris will delve into the origins of Bitcoin.

What does your show teach the audience? 

The show actually teaches the audience that laughter is the best medicine – if that medicine is coming at you full throttle in a spoon that hasn’t been sterilised by two dudes who don’t have medical degrees.  Also those who don’t joke, teach.  And that you should stay gold, pony boy.

Can you share a moment your cast has always remembered?

The cast will never forget the ghastly, yet majestic, face of Chris Little. When he utters the words “yeah right” after a tirade against someone remotely famous, man the crowd goes into uncontrollable ecstasy and fits of laughter. (Chris hands out tablets of ecstasy and laughing gas before the show).

What’s a fun fact about the show?

Chris Little, he’s like that dude that’ll sit back and watch you play yourself and all that, right? And see you sit there and know you lyin’, you know what I’m sayin’? And Sgro, he the Chef. He cookin’ up some marvellous shit to get your mouth waterin’.

Does your show have any audience participation?

The audience participates by shutting the hell up and laughing when they’re told.  End of story.  You want audience participation – go see The Wiggles.  See if you can wake up Jeff.  While you’re at it get in your big red car and drive away from Melbourne, drive to bloody Sydney.
