Can you put a price on paradise?

BFFs Jimmy and Corgan are heading on a whirlwind trip of cheap cocktails, awkward massages, and disgusting tourists to Australia’s favourite holiday destination: BALI. Armed with privilege, arrogance, and an unbelievable exchange rate, these two endearing messes face a wake-up call from the real world.

This new work by The Last Great Hunt will have you laughing one moment, and reeling the next as Jimmy and Corgan navigate their own ideas of paradise.

Written and performed by Jeffrey Jay Fowler (FAG/STAG, THE ONE, ELEPHENTS) and Chris Isaacs (FAG/STAG, THE GREAT RIDOLPHI, IT’S DARK OUTSIDE), BALI is a stand-alone companion piece to FAG/STAG.

What Fowler and Isaacs have achieved together is nothing short of capturing creative lightning in a bottle. ★ ★ ★ ★ ★


Bali is scripted as tightly as it is delivered. ★ ★ ★ ★ ½


Their banter will make you laugh out loud and then just as quickly flip your emotions making you squirm or tug at your heartstrings. ★ ★ ★ ★

The West Australian

This excellent two-hander is far more than a cabaret-style comedy night of Bali jokes. It takes an interesting stroll around the minds of two 30-something men.

If you don't recognise parts of yourself in Corgan and Jimmy, perhaps you should take a long, hard look in the mirror they are holding up to us. ★ ★ ★ ★

Bali is terrific. 10/10
