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.

Sorry it's been a bit quiet over here recently. We've been very busy rehearsing, singing, dancing, writing and re-writing, squabbling, hugging and generally working really hard to make Tale of the Golden Lease one of the best shows in the world
Tickets for opening night are all but sold out. 

Join the hundreds of Melbournians who are choosing Vigilantelope amongst other things this festival. 

Make an investment in personal happiness and general merriment. Buy a ticket here.

Vigilantelope Cake by Emily

One good-looking and utterly delicious cake. Thankyou Emily. You are the best.

Daniel Kitson Confirmed for the 2009 Melbourne Comedy Festival!

If you, like us, scoured the pages of the Comedy Festival Guide a few weeks ago for any mention of Daniel Kitson, and if you, like us, were disappointed to find his name glaringly absent, then you, like us, will be doing big jumps into the air, twisting your torso about and doing little claps when you find out that our favourite man is in fact joining us this April for a last-minute show.
Daniel will be doing Sunday the 5th of April to Thursday the 9th, Sunday the 12th of April to Thursday the 16th, and Sun the 19th of April to Thursday the 23rd at the RRR Performance Space in Brunswick. Tickets are remarkably cheap - $14 including booking fee - for what Daniel has described as a work in progress. 
The tickets are being sold exclusively through Polyester Records, and they have more information on their website here.
Daniel also has a post on his website here, which lists other projects for 2009, some of them during the festival, others in Melbourne later in the year.
If you have never seen Daniel Kitson before, and also if you have, you should definitely see him this time. He's really smart and lovely and poetic and philosophical and genuine and really very very funny.

Yes! Vachel from Vigilantelope came second on Tuesday in the Victorian State Final of Raw comedy. Ripper stuff. When all the state finals are complete, Raw will release the names of those who will proceed to the national final. Fingers crossed! Details about the National Final on the 19th of April can be found here.

For the long weekend, Vigilantelope have locked themselves in a house in the suburbs and are blocking and rehearsing for "Tale of the Golden Lease." The neighbors love it.
