Do you snore or love/tolerate a snorer? Then this award-nominated show will not only amuse you, but it could save your relationship or even your life.

Musical comedian Stew Walker has sleep apnea and snores a lot! His snoring is so loud that his wife has kicked him out to the bungalow and the neighbours have lodged noise complaints with the police. And sleep deprivation is causing havoc at work, where Stew nods off more often than a bored parliamentarian.

But it’s not all bad news. For one thing he’s saving heaps on drinks. Thanks to sleep apnea, he wakes up feeling hungover every morning despite not having touched a drop for months. And the noise from Stew’s snoring has scared the local possums away from his leafy Eastern suburbs block.

The Book of Snorin’ – Sleep Apnea The Musical follows Stew on his quest to treat his sleep apnea and escape the bungalow blues. It features wacky original songs in genres ranging from pop, country and blues through to rock, power ballads and Europop, and sold out at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival.

Short video showreel.

Stew Walker comedy career began in 2012 when Adam Hills called his comedic bluff on national TV. 6 weeks later Stew’s debut show wowed a packed room, with a live cross to Adam back in the studio.

Since then, Stew has made people laugh at comedy festivals and venues across Australia, UK, USA and Asia, and has had four hit shows at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival.
