What Would Bill Murray Do?

David Tieck is a big-fat absurdist, idiotic, stupid faced, teddy bear type person. In this new hour of silliness, Tieck is officially promising to show off at least 37 totally weird, reckless and flippantly foolish ideas, as well as possibly up to as many as 1 profound ideas. Taking a note from Bill Murray’s beautiful approach to life and comedy, this visceral show weaves together mischievous characters and sublime silliness with poems, songs and ridiculous joy. Tieck and Murray have a lot in common; they both studied at The Second City Chicago, they both have brothers, they’re both survivors of horrific cystic acne and they both love to leave audiences with a new life philosophy on how to have the most fun ever.

Melbourne based, Tieck is coming off the back of sold out shows at MICF 2018, Edinburgh Fringe 2018 and Adelaide Fringe 2019 with the Two Little Dickheads. He was a Dandy Minion in Taylor Macs: A 24 Decade History Of Popular Music at last years Melbourne Festival. And fun-fact, Tieck has published three books, and regularly writes freelance humour features for The Herald Sun. This will be Tieck’s first MICF solo show, directed by his co-dickhead in crime, the incomparable Sharnema Nougar (Fringe Wives Club). “Strange and wonderful and I want to go again” Pop-Culture-Y “Gorgeously weird” Sometimes Melbourne “Hairy and cuddly” Chortle “Can undoubtedly shred a guitar” Lots Wife Magazine David Tieck lives in Melbourne, Australia, after over ten years of performing all over Australia, and North America. Previously David was a mainstay of the Los Angeles improv scene for five years with iO West, The Second City, and Upright Citizens Brigade.

He has also studied with notorious French clown master, Philippe Gaulier, and at legendary drama school The Stella Adler Academy of Acting and Theatre in LA. Director Sharnema Nougar is a Prague Fringe Award Winner and a devoted clown from before it was cool - spawned from the loins of Phil Burgess (Dr. Brown). She is also an official sparkling member of the infamous Fringe Wives Club.
