Sweeney Preston is a stand-up comedian from Melbourne. One half of the duo behind Presentation is Everything, playing this FRINGEWORLD 2023, we caught up with him ahead of the show to find out what it’s all about.
What is your show about?
Presentation is Everything is an hour of fast-paced stand-up comedy that is visually complemented through the medium of Microsoft PowerPoint. We essentially wrote it to be the antidote to every bland lecture, dull pitch and boring presentation you’ve ever had to endure – think company KPI’s, uni group presentations, that sort of thing. Except we don’t have to worry about getting fired!
Favourite part of the show, no spoilers!
A visit from a very well-known TV personality. We can’t say any more but rest assured, he brings the house down every night!
What do you think people will get out of your show?
Generally people walk away with a newfound appreciation for the tiny regional Victorian town of Maryborough.
Apart from your show, what other shows would you recommend?
We’re also running a PowerPoint comedy lineup show called The Late Nite PowerPoint Comedy Showcase. We love a theme!
It’s basically 6 comedians performing 6 different PowerPoints in a first-of-its-kind format on the comedy landscape.
Describe your show in 3 words:
Cathartic. Airhorns. MicrosoftOffice365.
You can check out Presentation is Everything at Four5Nine Bar until 31st January 2023. TICKETS
