Titus O'Reily announces The Bye Round 2018 Tour: Manifestly Inadequate - touring nationally this August & September

21 Jun 2018


Frontier Comedy are thrilled to announce that popular sports satirist and best-selling author Titus O’Reily (Herald Sun, Channel 7, Nova 100) will tour nationally this August and September with his The Bye Round 2018 Tour: Manifestly Inadequate.

After a killer debut season, rave reviews and sold-out shows at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival and Sydney Comedy Festival with the live show version of his best-selling book A Thoroughly Unhelpful History of Australian Sport, Titus once again brings his unique and acerbic wit to the stage with his second annual The Bye Round Tour, a hilarious review of the 2018 AFL Season.

Titus debuted his first live comedy show during 2017’s AFL Bye Round (the break before the AFL Finals Series). The tour was so successful that The Bye Round Tour is now an annual occurrence, with the 2018 Tour encompassing seven cities.

The Bye Round 2018 Tour: Manifestly Inadequate kicks off on Saturday 4 August in Hobart, going on to Canberra, Perth, Sydney and Melbourne and Adelaide, before wrapping up at Brisbane’s Sit Down Comedy Club on Wednesday 5 September.

‘Hilarious… Titus has a huge following and no doubt his shows will continue to sell out.’ - In Review

‘Dry wit, satire and sporting fanaticism… incredibly funny. ’- Weekend Notes

The most popular satirist on sport and AFL in this country, Titus’ unique take on sport and lightning quick, clever and hilarious insights on AFL have featured in his regular Knee Jerk Reaction and Highly Unhelpful columns, which have seen Titus garner a rapidly growing and loyal 300,000 social media followers.

Titus has experienced a rapid rise to success since his beginnings in 2015, with guest spots on Channel 7’s AFL coverage, NOVA’s #1 rating FM breakfast show with Chrissie Swan, Sam Pang and Brisbane legend Jonathan Brown, ABC News Breakfast, ABC Grandstand and Fox Sports and as a weekly guest on Jules Schiller’s ABC Radio Drive show.

His first book A Thoroughly Unhelpful History of Australian Sport, released by Penguin Random House in November 2017, was such a hit it has since gone to a fourth print and is being re-released as a special Father’s Day edition in September 2018.

As well as his own national comedy tours, Titus has performed at the North Melbourne Grand Final Breakfast, functions for AFL clubs Sydney, Port Adelaide, Fremantle and St Kilda and many other corporate events.

‘Tailor-made for the sports nut whether their passion is footy, racing or cricket. Or all of the above.’ - Herald Sun

‘The funniest man in sports comedy.’ - Jamie Azzopardi

In what is already set to be the hottest annual event ‘not’ on the AFL calendar, don’t miss Titus O’Reily live as he picks apart all that was and will be in 2018 in Australia’s greatest league.
