The Show ...
‘Comedian Anthony Locascio is a bad, bad man.
He has a secret family in Bali.
He once stabbed a man.
He was caught masturbating at his grandmother’s funeral.
Only one of these is true. To find out which, come to Anthony’s newest Melbourne International Comedy Festival show Heart Of Darkness.
Anthony will tell the story of the worst thing he’s ever done in his life, and juxtapose this with how in love he is in his current relationship.
The audience and the man himself will then decide if, despite his sins, Anthony is worthy of love, or if he indeed has a HEART OF DARKNESS.’
