Little Egypt's Speakeasy moves to Adelaide 

After 3 knockout seasons in Sydney this incredible show is coming to Adelaide for four late nights in the Garden of Unearthly Delights. 1950's soul and rnb tunes mixed with hipster jive, comedy, theatre, live music and burlesque - created by Lucian McGuiness and starring Brian Campeau, Danica Lee, Katie Reeve, Dom Santangelo and yours truly as the smooth-talking MC. I also had a hand in writing the script, which features this minor domestic unrest you see depicted below.

The season runs from 5th to 8th March and you can book tickets right now, right here

Vegetable Plot blossoms at Sydney Festival 

2015 began for me with six blooming marvelous shows in Hyde Park with the Vegetable Plot. We really couldn't have asked for a better week - beautiful weather, a great setting and wonderful crowds. Thanks to everyone who came along to shake their stems. We'll be finishing off our album shortly and will resurface later in the year. Until then, stay fresh and dig yourselves

Vegetable Plot wins Fringekids Award 

My new show The Vegetable Plot has just picked up the award for Best Kid's show at the 2014 Sydney Fringe.

Chronic Symphonic Review in Sydney Morning Herald 

The Chronic Symphonic Live DVD/CD recently received this fantastic review from John Shand in the Sydney Morning Herald

Luke Escombe And the Corporation

CHRONIC SYMPHONIC (MGM)4.5 stars

What's not to like? Luke Escombe is funny and brave, a showman and an artist, a brilliantly engaging lyricist, expert tunesmith, fine guitarist and exceptional singer. Seldom is such sophistication wrapped in a coating of such overt fun. Even Escombe's most savage satire evokes a laugh rather than a snarl. The brilliant, heart-warming, rocking-or-funking songs are realised by a band that coats all it touches in class, capped by ingenious parts for the string trio the Noise, penned by guitarist Aaron Flower. Chronic Symphonic is suitelike with its through-thread of the sad, mad state we call the human condition. This live DVD includes the amusing videos that garnished the show, and is accompanied by a CD of the same material. Escombe has simultaneously released another highly recommended disc called Live On the Coast. Buy both. Hear him. I'd ask why he is not a major star if I didn't already know it was a lottery. JOHN SHAND
