EDDIE RAY From leader of the resistance to road worrier

Supported by the Home Of The Arts’ (HOTA) Rage Against The V(irus) fund for artists in lockdown, Kerbside Collective presents Eddie Ray – Road Worrier, a hilarious one-man web comedy following Gold Coast Music Video of the Year award winner Eddie Ray as he explores self-isolation in a different sense… trapped in limbo with the borders shut and country in lockdown, surviving in the Australian desert with nothing but his memories of a past life.

This four-episode taster was created in five days of essential travel as Eddie was forced to head to Queensland amid COVID-19 lockdowns and travel bans. All scenes are improvised and post-production was done during the compulsory quarantine period upon his arrival in Queensland.

The year is 2020, Eddie Ray is on a world tour with his one-man show that you might have seen at FRINGEWORLD 2020: Eddie Ray – Leader of the Resistance. He is a rockstar! An entertainer! A crowd favourite! He is also on a mission.  A mission to save the human race from being taken over by “the Machines” – our smartphones.

This man has a vision. He has a purpose. He is “That Guy… Without a Smartphone!” He is changing the world one Facebook notification at a time when suddenly, a great silence falls on the cities, and the world plunges into darkness… Join “That Guy” as he wanders out into the wasteland searching for people, searching for the truth, searching for baked beans and toilet paper. With no smartphone, will he ever find out what happened to all the people? Will live entertainment ever return to our cities? And who is this Covid?

Eddie Ray – Road Worrier is a four-episode comedy web series presented by Kerbside Collective and supported by the Home Of The Arts’ Rage Against The V(irus) fund for artists in lockdown. Click here to watch.
