Each year, during September, the Creative Director, DON MURCHISON hosts the annual JUNGLE CHALET ART & CRAFT EXHIBITION, at his home, the Jungle Chalet, in Sydney. Past exhibitions have featured Don's glass art - leadlight windows & mirrors, and 'Watergarden Installations, along with an exciting selection of guest artists - local, Australian and often an international guest artist from New Zealand - with paintings, sculpture, pottery and jewellery. Be fascinated by hygromorphomatics ~ the artistic harvesting of rainwater, to create artificial streams & waterfalls, with real sound dynamics of moving water...This year is the 16th annual art, craft & water garden event.
With the birth of two children, Don changed the focus to the night time event: THE ENCHANTED NIGHT GARDEN. This is held on two Saturday nights: 3rd and 10th September 2016. It is an annual official phenomenon in the Lane Cove Cameraygal Festival. Visitors are amazed that a mini rainforest wonderland can exist just 10 minutes from Sydney's CBD! Sculpture, outdoor Water-art Installations, leadlights & other artworks can be seen & commissioned.
Bookings can also be made for group visits during the year to Don Murchison's Watergarden Artscape. However plenty of advance notice is required to allow for all the preparation & the charge is negotiable accordingly. A visit can include tea / coffee & nibbles, or a meal with an arrangement with a local restaurant.
'Comedy Specialists' are the 'laughter doctors' who specialise in stress release! In the crazy world we live in, the only way to remain completely sane, is to book an act by those whom some regard as 'over the edge!' Make sense? Its simple ~ Laughter is the only medicine!... The best & only way to remain completely healthy!......So if your partner has left you, your sleeping pills no longer work, you missed winning Lotto by one number, its your colleague's birthday & she's one day older than she was yesterday, you're invited to a Conference but then find that you're expected to deliver a mesmerising speech, or you're retiring but they won't let you out the door before you deliver a speech....There is an answer to your prayers - "COMEDY SPECIALISTS!"..... A laugh a day will keep the doctor & psychiatrist away!!! ... If you aren't convinced, book our Mad Psychiatrist or a 'Fake Psychic' to 'predict' your colleague / friend's future in an outrageous way!...or a hilarious afterdinner Speech
Imagine being picked up at the airport in the CHOOKMOBILE (...a very stretched chook, instead of a real limousine) & during a slap-stick journey of adventure, which usually includes a faked breakdown, be driven to your hotel (or sightseeing), along with a personalised Comedy Script to welcome you to Sydney!... What a sensational way to send your M.D. to a conference! ... Outrageously popular for Hen's Nights! - We wish you could see the Chookmobile-'Limo' Act...! but as of 2015, unfortunately the [SubaRooster] Chookmobile is no longer registered, due to the unavailability of car parts for this 1975 vehicle.
Oh well, there are 40 of you?!... OK, we'll see if we can arrange a bus instead, along with 3 - 4 comedians & crazy costumed characters!!! If you don't have a good laugh this time, we'll send you to the local dentist for root canal therapy, complete with laughing gas! ...or loosen you up on a Coach Tour to the Hunter Valley to sample famous Australian wine (forget your ties & frocks, we'll dress you up as Sydney school boys & girls, & there'll be plenty of opportunities to 'play up' to the teachers - as they are all actors and comedians!)
Great Conference entertainment includes hilarious after-dinner Speeches, Comical Catering, Foolty Towers Impostors Act & many other acts, along with Complete Entertainment Packages.
We don't forget Birthdays - book a Comedygram, the Cake Act (comedian, with dancer jumping out of cake!) We also perform for Childrens' Birthdays!
For Christmas, see the Santa Comedy & Dance Act (with Anorexic Santa & Ms Mary Christmas!), also our Complete Entertainment Packages with Comical Catering, and where children are involved, Family orientated Company Picnics.
On a serious note, we specialise in writing personalised or customised scripts. We fax you questionnaire forms which become the brief for scripting your speech or performance!
FIT's, Honeymooners, or those of you who have clocked up a few years of marital survival... consider a Comedy Wedding Anniversary Show... a re-enactment of your wedding in comedy, with the 'priest' as a comedian, & you exchanging padlocks (instead of rings) on each others fingers! Afterall, its much more fun & cheaper than the real thing! If you're still single, get married for a laugh! ...A Comedy Wedding is the only way to avoid alimony!
...But no trip to Sydney is complete without a Comedy Harbour Cruise...complete with crazy costumed waiters and waitresses (Comical Catering), carricaturist, musician, photographer and a special humorous Speech welcoming you to Sydney!
We hope you enjoy surfing your way through all the potential laughs and fun we have to offer. We look forward to bringing a laugh your way!
