Do you love awesome architecture, amazing design and live comedy? You’re going to go nuts over this event.
Presented by the Australian Institute of Architects - WA Chapter, Man About the House is the brainchild of comedian Tim “Rosso” Ross of Merrick and Rosso fame and his musician mate Kit Warhurst.
When I first heard about this event I thought, “What a cool idea!” Man About the House combines three of my biggest loves: stickybeaking through an amazing iconic house, architecture AND a night of live comedy. (You could actually say I (re)met my husband at a comedy night, but I'll tell you more about that another time).
The award-winning show combines design, comedy and music. Tim and Kim have performed it in numerous incredible, architecturally significant locations across Australia, New Zealand, as well as Los Angeles and Palm Springs. AND very soon they are coming to Perth to perform Man About the House at four of our city’s most unique and inspiring houses from December 1 – 4, turning the homes into temporary performance spaces. The Perth houses include the home and studio of iconic architect Iwan Iwanoff along with some of Perth’s most prominent architects’ homes, including a 1950s Railway Commissions cottage addition, a 1920s bungalow that has been converted into a large Pacific teak timber-clad family home and a Coolbinia home designed in the 1950s by the renowned Krantz and Sheldon. (You can see more pics of these stunning homes in the rest of this post, and holy crap you are going to LOVE them).
