Clancy Overell and Errol Parker are bringing The Betoota Advocate around Australia in a new live comedy show.
The show will treat audiences to a no holds barred Betoota experience, filled with the trademark humour familiar to consumers of its material.
While The Betoota Advocate has long thrived in the worlds of print, online, radio and podcasts, this will be the firs time that it is brought to life on the stage.
The newspaper's editors will visit all corners of the country explaining how they have managed to keep a newspaper in the black.
This is the first of its kind, it’s the first time The Advocate has been invited to spearhead such a project," Clancy says. Since our transition into digital media in 2014, we’ve garnered this cult-like following around the country and we felt it time to head out on the road to share the story with everyone.”
“It should be good, I’m looking forward to it," Errol adds.
Audiences will witness a journey through the town of Betoota, learning of its origins and its skills of survival in 2018.
