Event Details

Anthony Locascio's Pappou (grandfather) immigrated to Australia from Greece in the 1950s, ferried over to become the top goalkeeper in Australian soccer. This dream came to an abrupt end when Pappou's fist had a chance encounter with a referee's head. ‘Being a man’ was different back then.

In 2024, his grandson's dream of being a stand-up comedian hangs in the balance, as he contends with the challenges of a modern man – staying off the vapes, raising kittens and defeating all forms of prejudice from the safety of a podcast microphone. Join Australia’s foremost post-racial comedian for a show which is a love letter to his grandfather, the immigrant experience, and chasing dreams in ‘PAPPOU’.

“A heartfelt tale of his grandfather's life of perseverance and evolving dreams”
Theatre Travels

“Draws on his ethnic and family background to great effect, without succumbing to the banality of ethnic comedy and stereotypes which more well-known comics sometimes are guilty of”
Squirrel Comedy

“He is one of Austalia’s most talented rising stars”★★★★★ On The House Perth
