After 20 years as half of Australia’s favourite musical comedy duo, The Scared Weird Little Guys, Rusty Berther (the little one) continues the musical hijinks and slick silliness that established The Scaredies as one of the most sought after corporate acts in the country.
The Scaredies have just finished an incredible career which included an astonishing number of shows – over 4500 in countries all over the world – festivals, comedy clubs, theatres, universities, countless television and radio spots, corporate events, childrens shows and everything in between. However, all good things must come to an end and Rusty and John went out on a high with a successful national farewell tour which left their legions of fans shouting for more.
Rusty now joins with the fabulous Mike McLeish, an accomplished musical theatre performer and improviser who famously played Paul Keating in Keating the musical for three years.
Before Keating! came into his life Mike had been performing as an actor and musician for nearly fifteen years, making appearances in a string of independent, Melbourne-based productions including Six Degrees of Separation, The Art of Success, Huge, Speaking In Thongs, Still and Face2Face. Mike has also provided sound design and musical scores for a variety of theatre companies including Red Stitch Actors Theatre, Theatre In Decay, St. Martin’s Youth Arts Centre and Theatre@Risk.
Together they continue the tradition of high energy musical skill and heavenly harmonies, blended with quick witted improvisation and song parodies that will entertain and amuse any audience.
