Brodi Lucas isn’t afraid to make fun of himself.

In fact, it’s thepremise for his stand-up comedy show,which he will perform in Burnie later this month.

“To be honest the whole thing isbasically just me humiliating myself,” the 24-year-old comedian said of My Mum Thinks I’m Funny.

“A lot of the jokes are at my expense. I’ve had some very funny experiences and I share those stories with the audience.”

The showdeals with Mr Lucas’childhood as one of ten siblings growing upin North-West, his move to the “big smoke” of Hobart to complete a course he didn’t understand, and his experiences working at a supermarket.

Currently, he is studying nursing and working part-timein Launceston.The show includes stories from work,school and family lifethat all ages will find relatable.

Mr Lucas said his mum is another central focus of the show.

“A lot of it is about my mum,” he said.

“I talk about how embarrassing she is for me and how embarrassing I am for her.”

“Ientered a competition five years ago and it just went from there,” he said.
