If you are looking for a dose of Australiana you should head down to the Irish Club this Saturday night for a free gig.
Austen Tayshus is a comedian best known for the 1983 comedy single "Australiana", a spoken word piece filled with Australian puns, where even Mount Isa gets a mention.
Tayshus may or may not be "trying to Mount Isa" but he is looking forward to playing here for the first time in years.
"I'm touring around the country at the moment on the back of 36th anniversary of Australiana, that's the excuse basically," Tayshus said.
"I've been to Mount Isa many times but not for a while, hopefully it will be a good show."
Tayshus said he had been on the road for 40 years but still loved "the thrill of the job".
"I love the improvisation and the interacting with the crowd and f***ing with everyone and sticking up political correctness," he said.
"It's a clever show, it's about what's going on the country, the whole world is so straight now.
"I'm talking about the whole 'me too' thing which has gone too far - the principles are right but it becomes a witchhunt after a while.
When it was suggested this was all a bit serious for a comedian, he laughed.
"It's an hour and a half and it's a funny show, mate," he said.
"I just did a show in Brisbane for the State of Origin and they cacked themselves laughing."
Find out for yourself this Saturday June 15 when Austen Tayshus plays the Irish Club from 8pm in the social hall.
