Steen Raskopoulos

12 September 2014

Direct from the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, one of Australia's most exciting emerging stars of comedy, Steen Raskopoulos, brings his award-winning sketch comedy I'm wearing Two Suits Because I Mean Business back to Melbourne for one week only.

Building on the success of his solo sketch show, bruce springSTEEN LIVE IN CONCERT!, Raskopoulos' new show is a showcase of elaborate characters, physical comedy and unbiased awesomeness written and performed by a man frequently called 'Steve'.

2014 has been a massive year for Raskopoulos. He sold out both of his seasons at the Melbourne and Sydney Comedy Festivals, and was recently a nominee for the Best Newcomer at the 2014 Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

He also had a starring role in the hit ABC TV sketch show This is Littleton and appears alongside Adam Garcia and David Wenham in the ABC political drama The Code, due to air later this year.

Having been writing and performing sketch comedy and improvised stage shows for seven years now, Raskopoulos has been described by Time Out as "destined for big things" and "ambitious and hilarious" in The Age reviews.

Steen Raskopoulos will perform at The Ballroom - Lithuanian Club, 44 Errol Street, North Melbourne, from Sunday 28 September to Saturday 4 October. For bookings, visit www.melbournefringe.com.au
