Laughter on the 23rd Floor

  • State Theatre Centre of WA 174 William St Northbridge, WA, 6003 Australia (map)

It's 1953. Senator McCarthy is raising hell about "reds" in show biz, and there's a "wait list to get on the blacklist". But on the 23rd floor of New York's Rockefeller Plaza, the team behind The Max Prince Show is determined to keep the good times rolling. One-liners fly and zingers ricochet off the walls as Max Prince and his writers hold out against the suits who think the show's too long and far too smart!

Written by Neil Simon (one of the most Oscar and Tony Award-nominated writers of all time), and based on his time as one of Sid Caesar's comedy writers, the non-stop gags keep on rolling in this clever comedy about clever comedians. Starring the impossibly funny Peter Rowsthorn (Kath & Kim, Thank God You're Here), this is a laugh-out-loud comedy with punch lines that pack a wallop.

"Pulverisingly funny." - The Wall Street Journal

Laughter on the 23rd Floor is directed by Kate Cherry and featuring cast including Humphrey Bower, Stuart Halusz, Damon Lockwood, Jo Morris, Ben Mortley, Peter Rowsthorn, Igor Sas, Lara Schwerdt, and James Sweeny.
