While taking the trawler out to catch mutant fish from the waters of Sydney Harbour, Jackson Pierce and Pat Sunderland discovered about comedy. It’s a bit silly.

The salty spray of the sea, the chilling bite of the wind, the exhilaration of a fish caught expertly. It’s something these two know nothing about. They don’t even own a fishing rod between them.

But if there’s one thing Pat Sunderland and Jackson Pierce know, it’s comedy. And if there’s one thing they know about comedy, it’s this: comedy is tragedy plus time minus the sad parts and with a few jokes thrown in.

After years of performing comedy in venues all across Sydney, Pat and Jackson have decided to bring their prodigious comedic expertise to bear in Gone Riffin’,an all-star all-hit all-laugh comedy extravaganza that will leave you thinking “Damn I laughed a lot just then! I wonder if it’s medically possible to laugh too much. Because if it’s medically possible to laugh too much, then I need to make an appointment with my doctor RIGHT NOW. My doctor will freak out when they found out how much I was laughing. I hope they won’t be mad at me”.

The Pat and Jackson guarantee is that we’ll explain to your doctor why you were laughing so much, and we’ll try and calm them down. But we think you should start seeing a different doctor.

So, come see a show filled with stand-up, stories, sketches, and riffs and catch an incredible performance from two bright shining stars of the Sydney comedy scene. Because if you don’t catch Gone Riffin’, then buddy there’s no hope for you.
