FRESH from a season at Edinburgh Fringe Festival, The Comedy Emporium is proud to announce the live chose-your-own-adventure comedy show The Dark Room will perform in Geraldton this year. As part of the Sunshine Festival, The Comedy Emporium will host its biggest show of the year – The Dark Room on October 9. Presented by master comedian John Robertson and set at the Queens Park Theatre, the show is the most exciting comedy show you will ever see. The best news is it will be opened up to ages 13-130! (Some Mature content)

Based on text adventure video games of the ‘80s The Dark Room was created as a viral YouTube hit, then adapted into a live stage show. The Dark Room is part of a huge tour route included for events like the Sydney EB Games Convention. Robertson promises to provide Geraldton with a mass crowd game experience like no other.

“It’s a live interactive video game show where the audience is the hero and the villain is a floating head who sounds like a British thespian. Winners get prizes; losers are punished…will you escape?” comedian John Robertson said.

Robertson recently toured through the Midwest as part of the Emporium’s July showcase. His crazy black plague wit and ability to ‘make it all up’ attracted attention when a recent Emporium show hosted in Dongara ended with him convincing a patron to crowd surf out of the venue. As The Dark Room has toured all over Australia and the United Kingdom, it’s easy to see why this is such a interesting show.

“Over 300,000 people have played the YouTube version of the show and only two people have ever won. Will you be the first person in Australia to escape The Dark Room live? It’s the choose-your-own-adventure where you don’t get a goddamn choice.” The Comedy Emporium director Julian Canny said.

Tickets on sale soon. If you would like more information on The Comedy Emporium or The Dark Room please call Julian Canny on 0458 306 111, search The Comedy Emporium on Facebook, or check out The Dark Room YouTube game at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hvkjP6dqpfY

JOHN ROBERTSON
John is a Renaissance man with a Black Plague wit. A comedian, playwright, YouTube visionary and clown, he's performed everywhere from rained- out bomb shelters in Hungary to legendary comedy clubs in London and packed theatres in Sydney. He's had fans dress as him, been concussed by well- meaning punters and generally made the world a louder, more frightening place.
"Brilliant - you could do worse than see John's show, but you'll rarely do better." - Chortle AU
Trivia: John's sadistic YouTube game "The Dark Room" has been played over 4,000,000 times worldwide. He has stage- dived off the roof of a theatre with Brendon Burns and a purple puppet. He will either carefully construct material, or make shows up as he goes. He owns many swords. Likes Star Trek, frock coats and top hats. Also pro wrestling. Doesn't drink wine. Comedy through fear.
John is also the official MC of the Supanova Pop Culture Expo, Wai- Con Anime Convention and Madman National Cosplay Competition. Wherever he goes, he brings the nerd love, manic slapstick and smart cynicism.
