COMEDIAN: Fred Lang
COMEDIAN: Fred Lang Picasa

Fred Lang

STORY-TELLER, comedian and raconteur, Fred Lang has led an interesting life, match this with a strong sense of the irony and you have comedy gold.

Fred Lang draws his material from those everyday experiences, whether it's his interest in immigration (both his parents escaped from Eastern Europe after the Second World War), or his belief that youth gets it way too easy nowadays.

Fred Lang's comedy is pertinent, insightful, clever and funny.

At the Ballina RSL on Thursday, February 25, from 8pm.

It is a free gig, so why not go along for a few laughs?
