The all-singing, all-dancing, one-man comedy experience that is a Bob Downe show gets a nautical makeover on Sydney's Rhythm Boat for Bob's last performances of 2016. Proudly camper than a row of tents, Bob is the glittering crown prince of raucous, tongue-in-cheek comedy cabaret.
His Love Boat Cruise presents a three-and-half-hour sea voyage around the Harbour with a three-course meal provided, while Bob entertains audiences with his unique brand of song, dance and cheeky laughs. And while the sea can be a harsh and unforgiving mistress, with Bob at the helm, at least you know you'll go down with a smile. Here, we ask Bob how he plans on navigating the Love Boat Cruise shows.
What are your cruise ship shows all aboat?
Mainly trying not to fall overboard. You know how I dance! It can get pretty rough off Neutral Bay too.
Is your show suitable for buoys and gulls, or is it adults-only?
I'm mainly worried about large groupers. Especially if they're bucks or hens.
With your brand of stand-up comedy, song and dance, would you say your performance will be oar-inspiring?
Women and children first. Always. Then old rich white guys.
You're well-known for your wordplay and double entendres; give us your best nautical-themed pun.
I can't just come up with these things on porpoise you know. Don't bait me. Who do you think I am? John Cleets?
Is there a message in a bottle you'd like to send your fans prior to the shows?
H.E.L.P. M.E. I've washed up on Fort Denison.
Join Bob Downe for his Love Boat Cruise around Sydney Harbour on 16, 23, 30 November.
