AND in OTHER BIG NEWS... on SAT 23rd February & SAT 2nd March, witness The Reserection of GODS COWBOYS!  Returning for 2 special nights only as a Fundraising event*** Born out of an act of God, a holy trinity of cabaret evangelists named GODS COWBOYS roamed the comedy plains of Australia from1992-96. Slim, the snake oiled preacher; Buck,the desperado deacon; and Billy, the free range altar boy, cowboy preachers who spread their love-thy-neighbour and eat beef doctrine to thousands of believers. Originators of the #MeatToo Movement, these irreverent angels of anarchy took their travelling 'Cowbaret' show to festivals, Catholic Universities and car parks across the country. converting everything in thier path as they brought the steeple to the people. After a long radical sabbatical, the boys are putting the furry chaps back on for two very special performances only. Gods Cowboys are George Catsi, David Delves and John Knowles. Pamela Payne SMH 1993 said: “Gods Cowboys are assured, dynamic performers with a wicked sense of irony ... They play it straight from the holster with diabolical accuracy ... images of damnation are wonderfully observed .... these three performers create riotous comedy...they demolish without mercy all that their outward pose supports. Their method is ironic; they preach a method of sharp comic conception. They take the stage by storm!"  Newcastle Herald 1994 said it with conviction: "...quick delivery of one liners that recalls the Marx Brothers. Watch some archival footage and reminisce back to the days before HD and 16:9 *** "All proceeds from this event are being donated to the family of John Knowles (Billy in Gods Cowboys). John's wife Ronelle has a malignant cancer that is incurable, meaning lot's of uncertainty up ahead. We are donating the funds so they and their 4 children (aged 8 to 13) can have some resources to find time to create some joy together", George Catsi & David Delves TICKETS for the two GODS COWBOYS performances can ONLY be purchased by clicking this link below that will take you to a specific  Eventbrite page: If you have read this far without hitting unsubscribe, I am truly grateful. Cheers!John
