Adelaide comedian Marc Ryan, better known as ‘The Beautiful Bogan’, has been performing stand-up comedy for the past 10 years. 

With 4 and 1/2 star reviews from The Adelaide fringe shows he has written, Marc has performed alongside Wil Anderson, Adam Hills, Dave Hughes, Fiona O’Laughlin, and toured New Zealand with American comedian Kevin Tate. 

Over the past 4 years, Marc has been a mission to explore his lived experience of mental illness in his comedy shows. Marc’s aim is to normalise the conversation around mental health and importantly, let men know they are not alone in their mental health struggles. He’s not afraid of getting vulnerable and opening up about his personal experiences, if it can help another person feel less alone. 

His mission is to change one life at a time. Catch him at the Star Hotel Yackandandah this Saturday. This event is recommended for 18+. 

Visit the @starhotelyackandandah website for further information and tickets.

Have you spotted this mural in Yackandandah? 

Located in the laneway between Gum Tree Pies Yackandandah and Buddha Shop, this mural adorns the wall of what once was the old petrol station. 

The petrol station was a proper old-school motor garage, located smack-bang in the centre of town, run by a man called, fittingly, Jack Holden.

Interestingly, the sign on the side of the building verandah (still visible) reads "Petrol 70.5". That sounds like a good price, but it's even better when you realize that the price was probably 70.5 cents per gallon.
