Murphy has selected his best gags, anecdotes and observations for your guffawing pleasure this Comedy Fest, so get ready for a show that's as great as he is at completing show descriptions- come up with this punchline later. "This is goof-ball comedy at its best and guaranteed to put a smile on your dial."- Herald Sun
