Welcome to our blog

This will be our online home for the next little bit, while our website gets upgraded. It's pretty cosy - got a nice fridge that came with it actually, which is well bonus. Stick around and have a sniff about. We'll post news and what not about our happenings when we get the chance.

Vigilantelope Nominated for a Golden Gibbo Award!

Last night, the Golden Gibbo Nominees were announced at the festival club, and incredibly, our very own "Tale of the Golden Lease" was amongst them!
The prize is in remembrance of Lynda Gibson, Melbourne comedy legend, who died on January 2, 2004 after a long battle with cancer. The award is "awarded to a local, independent show that bucks trends and pursues the artist's idea more strongly than it pursues any commercial lure." 
The Nominees for 2009 are: Heath McIvor: Randy's Postcards From Purgatory, Wes Snelling: Kiosk, The List Operators, Rob Hunter: Moosecow, and Tom Ballard: Is What He Is. Such an honour to be up there with these guys! Go and check out as many of these acts as possible - they are all very different and excellent.
