For over 10 years by luck or design Southern has only really experienced summer and autumn. Here is his story, a comedy show about so much more than weather. This is a jaw dropping true story that could even save your life. It's seriously funny.

Southern has been a professional comic for over 20 years and has performed all over the planet . Last year saw him garner rave review, devise and co-write the BEST AUSTRALIAN FILM at the Sydney indie film festival and break into North America, performing in the US and Canada.  His shows are always whip smart, informative and proper laugh-out-loud funny. As seen on ABC TV, Channel 10, BBC...
