TEG Dainty and Nice Events presented The Betoota Advocate tour of Australia in November/December 2018. Clancy Overell and Errol Parker treated audiences to a no holds barred live show in true Betoota-style, filled with their trademark wit and humour.
The tour opened in Townsville on Saturday 3 November, and hit every corner of the country including dates in Darwin, Toowoomba, Brisbane, Gold Coast, Wollongong, Newcastle, Perth, Melbourne, Hobart, Adelaide and Canberra before winding up in Sydney at the iconic Sydney Opera House on Saturday 1 December.
Whilst The Betoota Advocate has long thrived in the print, online, radio and podcast worlds, this was the first time it is brought to life on stage.
Following mass lay-offs in Australian media and the merger of Nine and Fairfax, the newspaper’s editors will visit each corner of the country explaining how, in this day and age, they have managed to keep a newspaper in the black.
“This is the first of its kind, it’s the first time The Advocate has been invited to spearhead such a project. Since our transition into digital media in 2014, we’ve garnered this cult-like following around the country and we felt it time to head out on the road to share the story with everyone.” – Clancy Overell
“It should be good, I’m looking forward to it.” – Errol Parker
