A man, a puppet and a Ted E Bare
ALTERNATE realities, parallel universes and a mind-bending journey into a world where nothing is as it seems.
For the very first time international comedy star David Strassman is coming to the Rose City along with his friends Chuck and Ted E Bare.
Strassman's new show Careful What You Wish For truly ventures down the rabbit hole when a strange wish transforms his friends into comical alternate selves, taking over Strassman's mind.
Chuck Wood's sharp-tongued, caustic and sarcastic humour has been cracking up audiences for years.
And this show is an all-new creation from the dark and twisted mind of puppet master Strassman.
Considered by many to be one of the best ventriloquists in the world, his shows are hilariously funny and razor sharp.
Strassman said he was excited to be finally coming to Warwick.
"I've been to most towns in Australia," he said.
"I always tour the big cities and try to fit in as many small towns as I can.
"This time I'm glad I finally get to make it to Warwick and I'm looking forward to putting on a show for everyone."
Strassman said people who have watched previous shows will also enjoy this one.
"The old characters are back again for the new show," he said.
"We have some different effects that allows us to actually be in Ted E's room.
"There will be lots of lights and amazing state-of-the-art theatrical effects."
The new show has 18 characters and high-tech puppetronics (robotics) that brings characters to life, even when Strassman has left the stage.
"Some of the new technology is fantastic," Strassman said.
"It's really cool that I don't even need to be near the puppets to make them work.
Strassman will be performing his show at Kings Theatre on February 27.
The first show at 7pm is already sold out.
Tickets are selling fast for his second show at 9.15pm.
"It's exciting to know that the first show is already sold out," Strassman said.
"I incorporate local references into my show and topical subjects so the people in Warwick should really enjoy it.
"I hope the second show is a sell out as well."
The Daily News is giving away a double pass to the show. See Page 6 of our print edition for more details and the entry form.
