* Jonestown - Guinea Pigs *
2015 BRIAN MCCARTHY MEMORIAL MOOSEHEAD AWARD RECIPIENT 2014 MICF GOLDEN GIBBO AWARD NOMINEE Directed by Damian Callinan 2015 Moosehead Award recipient and sketch comedy double-act Jonestown return for their second Melbourne International Comedy Festival with their brand-new show, Guinea Pigs. Nicholas J Johnson and Sarah Jones are Jonestown. The formidable duo first performed together at last year's MICF, where their critically acclaimed debut show, Pajama Party, earned them a prestigious Golden Gibbo nomination. This year they return with Guinea Pigs. Two friends wake up trapped in a science lab forced by their unknown captor to endure gruelling psychological experiments to earn their freedom. Jonestown's inventive and playful audience interaction, physical comedy and meta jokes have become trademark. Jones and Johnson combined skills make their sketch shows irresistible. Author, entertainer, magician and comedian Johnson is the sensible one, a curmudgeonly geek who endures Jones' nonsense. An industry veteran, he's been seen on Network Ten's The Project, and heard on Triple J, 3AW and ABC Local Radio. Johnson has produced several shows for the Melbourne Magic Festival and he performed his solo comedy show Today Tonight, Tomorrow the World debuted at Melbourne Fringe in 2012 to rave reviews. He has just released his first novel, Chasing the Ace. Jones is a dedicated comedian whose work blends old vaudeville charm with sharp modern stand up - sweet with a hint of psychopath. She's performed on cruise ships and in comedy clubs, and her first solo show, Sarah Jones Does Not Play Well With Others performed at the Melbourne, Adelaide, Edinburgh and Camden Fringe Festivals in 2011-13. Don't miss the next unexpected, interactive ride into Jonestown this MICF. 'Sure to delight, disturb and perhaps just cause a few audiences members to question their own sanity.' - Herald Sun
