Creed From ‘The Office’ Is Touring Aus In 2020 & That’s Really, Really Good Timing

Creed is the best character on The Office, and that’s just science. In an extremely Creed move, the the loveable weirdo has just announced that he’s touring Australia in 2020 with a variety show.

Actor and musician Creed Bratton played a fictionalised and OTT version of himself on the US version of the show, and now he’s bringing that same brand on unhinged talent to Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Canberra and Fremantle in February next year.

The variety show will include live music, stand up comedy and never-before-told stories from both his personal life and his time on The Office. Who knows, maybe we’ll finally find out why Creed needed three office chairs. It looks like it’ll be a perfect storm of the real Creed’s genuine talent and the fictional Creed’s unfettered madness.

As for the former, the real Creed was the lead guitarist for the band The Grass Roots until 1969 and has led a successful solo career since he left the band. He’ll be playing some of those songs at the live show, as well as sharing some wild stories from his longstanding career that need to be heard first-hand to be believed.

As for the latter, Creed in The Office is Dunder Mifflin’s scuba-obsessed quality assurance director, the one-time regional manager, and an ex-cult leader who has almost definitely murdered someone and stolen their identity.

Tickets for the live show go on sale here on Tuesday, October 22. The venues are all pretty intimate, so you’ll want to get in quick for a chance at tickets — you can even sign up for the pre-sale on the tour promotor’s website.
