Simon Chugg is: Living the Dream is a one-man comedy show about what happens when a fascinating reality collides with preconceived ideals about destiny and who we are. A modern ‘fable’ where truth is both stranger and funnier than fiction, filled with wondrous tales from the lowest echelons of the Australian entertainment industry to the highest dimensions of the astral plane… Written & performed by Simon Chugg.
Marking his debut full-length solo show and return to the Melbourne festival stage after a number of years in the UK, 2013 Raw Comedy finalist Simon Chugg has written, collaborated and performed with some of Australia’s best comedians and musicians including Michael Chamberlin and Tim Minchin, most recently co-writing and
directing Lisa-Skye’s 2012 critically acclaimed LADYBONER”[(a) wickedly funny walk on the wild side… 4 stars -Herald Sun]”.
