The Scared Weird Reunion Show Is Back

Scared Weird Little Guys are BACK with a highly anticipated Reunion Show

Have you noticed your life has been a little less scared, a little less weird and a little less… little over the past decade?
That’s probably because the Scared Weird Little Guys, those insanely talented dudes who made the whole country LOL, haven’t performed in Brisbane for nearly 10 years!
Clear the diary for March, because, they are back!

Multi-award winning, The Scared Weird Little Guys , or ‘The Scaredies’ (as they are affectionately known) were a part of Australian culture for over 20 years, performing just a smidge under 5,000 shows all over the country as well as tours of the US & UK. They have appeared on almost every live Australian TV Show you can think of including Hey Hey Its Saturday, The Micallef Programme, Rove Live and even Sale of the Century (appearing in the gift shop – a career highlight!). FYI: the name “Scared Weird Little Guys” comes from a line in the famed Al Pacino movie Cruising.

The boys – Rusty Berther (vocals, guitar, banjo and CABOOLTURE BORN Queenslander!) and John Fleming (vocals, guitar, mandolin) and – performed their last show in Brisbane in 2011 but in March 2019 they are BACK for a special REUNION EVENT at the Brisbane Comedy Festival, for THREE SHOWS ONLY!

Presented by Christopher Wayne Entertainment (The Naked Magicians, Two Man Tarantino), the Scared Weird Reunion Show will feature a selection of their Greatest Hits (for which they won a ‘Best Comedy Album’ ARIA award in 2004), including such classics as ‘Deadly Animals (Come to Australia)’, ‘Queensland’, ‘Underwear Song’ & ‘Sex and Drugs and Leg Spin Bowl’ as well as a fistful of new stunts, jokes and songs, which sound a bit like the old stuff… only funnier.

Christopher Wayne says, “Growing up, I recall sitting with my family watching these guys on TV. I still remember the first time I saw them perform on Hey Hey It’s Saturday! The Scared Weird Little Guys are Australian comedy legends and this show is going to be great for their old fans and introduce a whole new generation to their comedic genius!”

As for the Scaredies themselves, Rusty is pumped to be bringing their show back to the Brisbane Powerhouse, “Brisbane was always my favourite city… in Queensland… apart from Toowoomba.” Since this final show Rusty has had a packed schedule, releasing his debut book Scared Weird Frozen Guy and travelling to Antarctica to take part in the Ice Marathon, a 42-kilometre run through one of the most unforgiving places on Earth.

The Scared Weird Reunion Show is on March 7 at SunPAC, Sunnybank and then at the Brisbane Powerhouse from March 8 to 10.
