About this event

Austen Tayshus - 40th Anniversary of "Australiana" at the Crossroads Bar
Comedian | 18+ Show | $30

Austen Tayshus is an Australian Comedy legend having performed over 10,000 shows in nightclubs, universities, comedy clubs, pubs and theatres throughout Australia, New Zealand, United Kingdom, USA, Fiji and Bali.

In 1983 Austen Tayshus released ‘Australiana’ which is still, 4 decades later, the highest selling single in Australian recording history.

Austen Tayshus was born at Sydney’s first Comedy Store in Jamieson Street in 1981. He stood up for the first time after a fairly precarious delivery, in March of that year. By 1982, ‘AUSTRALIANA’ was ready to record and it was released by Regular Records through Warner music in June 1983. It sold in excess of two hundred thousand copies, went double platinum and still holds the record for the highest selling Australian single ever.
