 Giant Dwarf strongly encourages masks at our venue

Justin Hamilton and friends celebrate art and entertainment live at Giant Dwarf.

In his 25-plus years as a comedian, Hammo has never stopped being a fan of all manner of art and entertainment. His new podcast Big Squid is a weekly celebration of everything from movies to music, from short stories to television series, from comic books to documentaries. On October 3rd , Hammo will be bringing Big Squid to the Giant Dwarf stage with the help of some of his friends to share with you the art and entertainment they’re embracing through these challenging times.


  • ABC’s Richard Fidler talking about his new book The Golden Maze: A Biography of Prague,
  • Musician Georgia Mooney is sharing her love of Joni Mitchell,
  • Comedian Ben Ellwood explains which movie made more sense: Tenet or Cats,
  • Master improviser Rebecca De Unamuno will give us some insight into her craft alongside comedian Bec Melrose in the segment Trophy Night,
  • And all the way from Melbourne, Cal Wilson‘s “friend” Adele will be sharing her thoughts about all the guests

The Big Squid Live recording will be an opportunity for you to revel in a night where Hammo and his friends share their love of the Arts with you.
