Living the fast life as a ‘sit down’ comedian

Posted on: Sun 19 Jul 2020

He is outrageous, outspoken, cynical and unapologetic when dealing with or not heeding to those pandering to political correctness. But many will also remember him as one of the original members of the award winning musical comedy trio, the Doug Anthony All Stars who dominated both the national and international comedy circuit in the 1980s and 1990s.

Sit down comedian, media personality, screenwriter, author and director, Tim Ferguson recently returned to the 2020 Adelaide Fringe Festival, where he performed his widely acclaimed show, A Fast Life On Wheels which touches on many stories chronicling his extraordinarily 35 year long colourful, provocative and controversial career in the Australian entertainment industry as well as having to deal with Multiple Sclerosis.

Ferguson joined De-Stigmatised‘s Jarad in the studio where he dryly yet cheekily revealed the physical, psychological and emotional complexities that he has dealt with involving his condition while conveying sarcastic pessimism toward audiences’ oversensitive and self-righteous sentiments toward his politically incorrect jokes including those on vegans and naturopaths.
