For the past nine years, Tim “Rosso” Ross has performed his Man About the House show in some of the world’s most significant homes.
Part comedy show part house tour, the comedian and former radio host has now turned his attention to Mosman and will take over local trophy home House for Bees on Sunday 17 September.
Tim and musical sidekick Kit Warhurst have chosen award winning House for Bees for the unique audience experience.
“Basically, I just wanted to combine my three loves – comedy, music and design – into one show. I also wanted to work with my best friend Kit Warhurst, so this is the perfect opportunity for us to hang out, write sing silly songs and perform together,” Rosso told Mosman Collective.
“People love going inside a great house and having a bit of a sticky beak, so all we have done is sweeten the deal with some laughs and music. Man About the House lets people experience buildings in a way they would never normally be able to, and this Mosman residence is an absolute knockout, so it’s going to be a great show.”
“People love going inside a great house and having a bit of a sticky beak and we’ve sweetened the deal by adding some laughs,” Tim told Mosman Collective.
ANNA USHER: What drew you to House for Bees as a performance space?
TIM ROSS: It really spoke to me as an idea and as an execution. We are blessed with such a wonderful climate in this city, and we really need to make the most of it. House for Bees has embraced the outdoors with its deep rear garden, vegetable patch and bee hive. It is something very special.
ANNA: Do you spend much time in Mosman?
TIM: My Uncle Jim lives in Mosman and I’m always over visiting, and he drags me to all his favourite restaurants and coffee shops. One of my all time favourite places is The Buena.
