Welcome to 2006. Our scene takes place in Darwin Australia, specifically at the location of the Australia’s Secret Space Mission. This Mission was established in 1989, when a young scientist named Benson discovered that there was a way to launch a manned space mission to the planet Pluto. In 1989 the mission was launched, with a target of hitting Pluto in 2006.  With an  20 year time span, this mission was going to be the most mentally intense mission ever attempted by a human. Two astronauts, both having broke up from long-term relationships chose to accept this task. The spaceship, amongst other luxuries, could handle the digital storage of 14 songs. The songs would have to be timeless and inspirational - and great care was taken to allow equal weighting to the suggestions of all those at the Space Mission. However, due to the strain on personal relationships caused by the mission, and the proximity of the launch coincided with the release of the 1989 album ‘But Seriously…’, it came to pass that the 14 precious places were filled with a collection of Phil Collins Greatest Hits. Our story takes place 1 year before the intended landing, where our heroes, Xavier and Jared sit patiently, having cycled through Phil Collins back catalogue a staggering 93,000 times, awaiting their landing on the planet furthest from the Sun - Pluto. The exact time when it is discovered that Pluto is no longer a planet.

Since the dawn of time, man has questioned the origin and meaning of his existence. Work? Relationships? Justin Beiber? So stop asking why, and start asking how? How can I prove to the world that I was right and it was wrong, and that it can go and suck a leaky bag of “I told you so”?
Heath Franklin brings his award winning alter-ego Chopper in A Hard Bastards Guide to Life, a comprehensive “hit list” on how not to just survive, but thrive in a modern world that thinks it’s better than it is.

So real you can almost touch it!

We have a tumblr!

This tumblr account is going to be so much more than just another way of increasing A-List Entertainment’s social media presence which in turn creates awareness of the company, which in turn drives people to our website to see what our AMAZING comedian’s are up to which in turn becomes ticket sales and ticket sales feed comedians and pay staff wages.

While that is important, it’s also an excuse for Kylie (me) the social media girl in the office to spend time doing all things that are fun to her like blogging, sharing office shenanigans, giving comedy fans exclusive behind the scenes access and naturally updating everyone on what our fantastic comedians are up to and promoting their shows.

Here are a few things about us - things that will make you want to follow/bookmark/become obsessed with this tumblr account, sign up to our monthly email newsletter, download our iPhone app, subscribe to our youtube channel, follow us on twitter, like us on facebook…etc etc

So in summary, if you love comedy, shenanigans, fun and cute dogs you’ll love A-List Entertainment. That’s it from us now. Keep an eye on this space!

Cheers,

Kylie
