Rusty and Another Guy
Feature Act available for hire, based in Victoria
After 20 years as half of Australia’s favourite musical comedy duo, The Scared Weird Little Guys, Rusty Rich (the little one) continues the musical hijinks and slick silliness that established The Scaredies as one of the most sought after corporate acts in the country.
Rusty now joins with the fabulous Mike McLeish, an accomplished musical theatre performer and improviser who famously played Paul Keating in Keating the musical for three years. Together, they continue the tradition of high energy musical skill and heavenly harmonies blended with quick witted improvisation and song parodies.They make a welcome, entertaining addition to any type of event and can even offer a specially written song, tailored to suit any company or message.
Rusty is an accomplished, all round entertainer and musician. He plays a variety of instruments including guitar, ukulele, banjo, harmonica and double bass. He is a skilled vocalist, comedy writer, musical arranger and bandleader. Years of diverse performing situations has given him the ability to work under any circumstances – from noisy street shows to corporate awards nights, from nerve wracking live television to a packed MCG.
Mike is best known to Australian audiences for his portrayal of Paul Keating in Casey Bennetto’s hugely successful production of Keating! The Musical. At the end of August 2008, Mike completed three years of touring the country as the star of this seemingly unstoppable show.
"The guys on Tuesday night were sensational! All night and the next day I was stopped by attendees saying how much they loved it. One lady on my table at the end of their performance said “my cheeks are hurting I’ve been laughing so much!” The personalize song for my boss was nothing short of brilliant, I was delighted by how well they captured him and he was absolutely blown away."
