It's not often you hear architecture and comedy mentioned in the same breath.

While mid-century design continues to flood our social media feeds it can sometimes come with a whiff of, well, seriousness.

So, we're calling time on all the Scandi design chit chat and suggesting that all you design nerds loosen up.

Park all those Frank Lloyd Wright discussions and take yourselves off to see 'Man About the House', a comedy performance that exudes a passion for mid-century architecture without a hint of chin stroking in sight.

'Man About the House' was devised by the Aussie pals as a way of combining their love of design with good old-fashioned stand-up comedy, traditional yarn-spinning and live music.

The show is an intimate experience that delves into the lives of its two performers while weaving in the venue building's design narrative.

It's a show that on paper shouldn't work but the way Ross and Warhurst welcome and relax you into their chosen space makes it a massively enjoyable experience.

It helps that both are adept at holding a crowd.

Ross is an established comedian, broadcaster, television presenter and author and Warhurst is a successful solo musician who previously toured the world playing drums in the garage rock band Rocket Science. 

The show has taken them all around Australia and across America and is now heading to Europe for the first time, beginning with a performance at the Venice Biennale and then moving on to London for shows at the BT Tower, Australia House, 2 Willow Road (by Erno Goldfinger) and the White Lodge (by Studio Octopi).

Tickets are selling fast so grab one while you can.

After all, what more would you want from a night out, comedy and a peep at some of London's most historic hidden gems.
