Combining his love of architecture with his talent for comedy, Tim Ross’ critically acclaimed standup show, Man About The House, has enjoyed sell-out seasons in Sydney and Melbourne and is now heading to regional NSW. The show has taken place against the backdrop of some of Australia’s most iconic Modernist houses (Robin Boyd Walsh St, Melbourne and Rose Seidler House, Sydney) and Ross has now chosen the contemporary surrounds of Glen Murcutt’s award winning Boyd Education Centre for his next comedic journey.

Overlooking the Shoalhaven River, the venue is located within the grounds of the historic property, Riversdale, the former residence of artist Arthur Boyd and his wife Yvonne. The couple gifted the property to the Australian public in 1993 and in 1999 the Boyd Education Centre – a building conceived to carry out Arthur and Yvonne Boyd’s vision of a place for children to become immersed in art – was completed.

Audience members will have the rare opportunity to stay at the Boyd Education Centre. This is an opportunity never offered to the public before.

Tim Ross says he wanted the venue to be the real star of the show. “It’s as much about coming along and enjoying the music and the comedy as it is taking time to enjoy the architecture... What is really exciting about the event is that a few very lucky people can also spend the night in the venue for the first time ever.” He said.

Tim Ross will be accompanied by the live music of Kit Warhurst and tickets include a free architecture tour of the Boyd Education prior to the show.
