NEWCASTLE comic Steve White has been described as a “serious juxtaposition”.
“He is your typical VB drinking bogan but he is so in touch with his emotions,” a spokesperson for Newcastle comedy organisation Onslow Arts Council said.
White also loves Disney movies and is the driving force behind the podcast series Dissecting Uncle Walt.
His love of Disney flows into his comedy, he's a “seriously super funny guy”.
White will be bringing his unique brand of Newcastle flavoured comedy It Takes a Village to Raise an Idiot to The Press Book House. He will be joined by special guests Liam Callen and James Connors.
It’s on November 24 at 7pm, and just $5 will get you through the door.

ART ON DECKS
COME check out some rad local art on skateboard decks at Softies, 20 Maitland Road, Islington.
These decks have finished their hard lives, and hope to retire to a life of bliss hanging on someone’s wall.
All proceeds will go to Skatistan - an education, art and skate charity operating out of Afganistan, South Africa and Cambodia.
It’s on December 2, 6pm.
