Mezzanine Films and BOS Films present

DYING FOR A LAUGH

Written and Directed by Stig Wemyss

Based on an original idea by Alan Fletcher

DOP : Anthony Littlechild

Marty Moore was a highly regarded and successful stand up comic until a serious incident at a gig brought his star crashing to earth.

Now he is relegated to D class gigs such as children’s parties and even then he fails to cover himself in glory.

Finally, as his career languishes at rock-bottom,  Marty receives a booking that could help him restore his credibility and re-establish his credentials. But in Marty Moore’s life nothing ever goes to plan.

Dying for a Laugh stars Australian Comedy legend Marty Fields.

Also starring Darren Gilshenan, Abbe Holmes, Ben Pendergast, Sharon Davis, Finn Scicluna-O’Prey, Terry Norris, Jan Russ, Barry Friedlander, Marc Mazzeo and Brian Hannan.

Waiting Room Band Page

 

Waiting Room

Waiting Room was formed by Alan Fletcher, Tommy Rando and Chris Hawker in 2004 and immediately took up a weekly residency at the Elephant and Wheelbarrow in St Kilda mainly playing covers.

In 2005 the band released In the Waiting Room and were invited to tour the UK pub and University circuit twice that year to huge acclaim.

For the next 12 years WR continued to play at the Elephant and tour the UK as well as performing in Sydney and Brisbane. The band released a ‘live’ album in this time.

In 2019 after a hiatus Waiting Room has re-formed as Alan Fletcher vocals and guitar, Tommy Rando vocals and guitar and Tim Smith on keyboard. The band concentrate on playing their eclectic original works that move from punk and rock through to pop and folk ballads. Samples of Waiting Room music can be heard below.

Waiting Room is available for gigs within Australia. Please email Alan Fletcher @ mail@alanfletcher.net for booking enquiries.

One True Love – song for Jen

This post is a touch on the self-indulgent side but I can’t resist sharing my new song with you because it truly comes from my heart dedicated to my One True Love, Jennifer Fletcher.

Over the years I have written a variety of songs but, much to my wife’s chagrin, I have never penned a song for her.

It’s a big oversight given we’ve been together for more than 30 years and married for 28 years. In my defence, even when you love someone above anything else in the world it can still be hard to put your feelings into words.

I finally took on this task with rigour and, with the help of stellar producer Cameron McGlinchey and brilliant guitarist Danny Spencer, I created this simple tune to express my enduring love for my darling wife.

I hope you enjoy it and I would love to hear your thoughts.

Cheers

Fletch
