The Book of Snorin’ – Sleep Apnea the Musical


Dates: September 8, 2022 - October 2, 2022

Run Time: 50 mins

Venue: THE INTERNET (Digital Shows)


After a sold-out debut season at the 2019 Melbourne International Comedy Festival, the world’s first comedy show about sleep apnea is here.

This hilarious show follows Australian comedian Stew Walker on his quest to treat his sleep apnea and escape the bungalow blues. If you snore or love a snorer, then Stew Walker’s show featuring ‘Stewpid’ songs about snoring and sleep apnea will not only amuse you, but it could save your relationship or even your life!

Stew has sleep apnea and snores a LOT! His snoring is so loud that his wife has kicked him out to the bungalow and the neighbours have lodged noise complaints with the police. And sleep deprivation is causing havoc at work, where Stew nods off more often than a bored parliamentarian.

“One of the best comedies I’ve seen at the Fringe. Not to be missed.” (Buxton Fringe Reviews 2020)

Stew Walker

Stew Walker is a musical comedian from Melbourne. He began his comedy career in 2012 when he was discovered by Adam Hills on his national TV talk show Adam Hills in Gordon Street Tonight. (see clip: He was in the studio audience thinking he was just going to see the show being recorded. But on national TV Adam called his bluff about wanting to be a comedian when he revealed that Stew’s 'bucket list' wish to do a show at Melbourne International Comedy Festival was about to come true. Six weeks later Stew made a successful comedy debut to a packed room at Melbourne Town Hall with a 30 minute show of original songs, including a live cross to Adam back in the studio (see clip: Since then Stew has gone on to perform at festivals and venues across Australia, Asia and the UK, and produce hit solo shows The Book of Snorin' - Sleep Apnea the Musical, A Hard Days Night of Beatles Parodies and Live, Love, Laugh. "One of the best comedies I’ve seen at the Fringe. Not to be missed."
