Ah… Seoul makes us laugh


Australia’s latest stand-up sensation, former prime minister Scott Morrison, who goes by the stage name Scomo, has wowed audiences at his first foray into the world of international comedy festivals.

Scomo, who has embraced the stand-up circuit since leaving behind the world of politics, made a guest appearance on the undercard at the awkwardly named comedy festival, the Asian Leadership Conference, being held this week in the new northern hemisphere comedy capital, Seoul in South Korea.

His stand-up set, as usual, was heavy with irony and was based on his experiences leading the nation through the COVID crisis.

The Bug was there to catch his routine and presents these highlights.
