Man About the House show coming to Brisbane

A little modernist birdie told me that Tim Ross' Man About the House stand-up show is coming to Brisbane. He is performing a show at Eisenmenger House in Carina on Saturday 2 November. For one night only, people!

Tim Ross is a comedian, broadcaster and architecture tragic (see his modernist home here) and has combined his two passions of comedy and architecture for a stand-up series called Man about the House. The concept invites small audiences into historic or iconic houses around Australia. The show has already had sell out seasons at Rose Seidler House (NSW), Walsh Street House (VIC), and numerous architecture festivals.

In Brisbane, it will be staged at Eisenmenger House (1961) (see the house here), which is owned by the publishers of Australian Modern. Proceeds from the show will also go towards the publication of Australian Modern Design, which is a limited edition (and independently-published) book that will be out in late November 2013.

For those unaware, Tim Ross became a household name as one half of comic duo ‘Merrick and Rosso’, with co-comedian Merrick Watts on Triple J radio. On TV, Rosso has made guest appearances on shows such as All Saints, Spicks and Specks and Rove Live. He has guest programmed Rage and was a regular on Weekend Sunrise. Along the way he’s picked up numerous ACRA radio awards, an Astra (I'm pretty sure that's not a Holden), GQ Man of the Year award and an ARIA. In 2010, he released his first book, Mum Had A Kingswood. He is currently a contributor to Men’s Style Australia, Rolling Stone and writes a monthly column Rosso’s Sydney for 'The (Sydney) Magazine' in The Sydney Morning Herald.

I've already chosen my flammable frock to wear for the evening - it's going to be such a fun night. Hope to see you there!


  1. How awesome will that be? Would love to go but I think I already have something on. Hmmm ... how can I get out of it to go to this? I've always loved Rosso.

    1. It will be very awesome LMG. What a shame you have a clash because it's going to be a cracker of a show! xx

  2. This sounds like such a fun concept...a small show in a fabulous house...genius!

    1. I know Dana, It's such an inspired concept. I'm very much looking forward to the show. xx
