Achieve your dreams. Reach your full potential. Be the best that you can be. God is dead but not to worry – there is a new religion of our time: You!
Man Puts His Dreams In A Sock is the thought-provoking and relentlessly hilarious new hour from multi-award winning comedian Damien Power in which he'll delve into our culture of narcissism and explore how society dictates our greatest desires and dreams.
In this deeply funny and provocative hour of stand up, Damien will challenge you to think about where our dreams come from and what happens when we confront them. Ain't no Instagram filter going to sugarcoat the ugly truth.
Constantly digging beyond the surface to scrutinise humans en masse, Damien's unique take on why we do the things we do is as refreshing as it is hilarious. He is the comedian that people are raving to their friends about after the show, which is why he consistently sells out at comedy festivals around the country.
A three-time Barry Award-nominated artist and recipient of the coveted Pinder Prize at the Melbourne Comedy Festival, Damien Power has performed all over the world, including in Montreal, L.A and Estonia, and recently his satirical video on gun control in America on ABC Comedy went gangbusters for the New York Times.
If you've ever had an inkling that we are living in a vacuum of Instagram-fuelled inspirational bullshit, then don't miss Damien Power this festival.
