Melbourne International Comedy Festival (pt I)

It’s a busy time for me!

My wonderful friend, Michele da Costa and I wil be co-hosting (and alternating doing a spot) at our upcoming Queer Comedy Variety Nights, produced by Michele.
I’ll send another email next week with our week two line ups. As you can see we have incredible line ups and different guests every night. So come to one, come to all. In fact, if you come to all six of them, I will give you a very special prize of some Lucy Best merch and a gorgeous colouring in book, valued at $60.

You can listen to Michele and I talk about the shows and also our feelings about the recent upsetting events that have particularly impacted the queer community on Saly Goldner’s wonderful

Other chances to catch me during comedy festival

– 2nd and 5th April I will be the “glamorous assistant” at Damo and Mick’s Backyard Quiz. I was supposed to compete at the quiz last comedy festival but I got covid and had to pull out. Now I am getting to be involved without having to use my brain! Join me there to see if I can pull off being glamorous and assisting.

– 13th April I will be competing in the Comedy out West (COW) competition. Come along and please vote for me (only if you think I should win obviously)

– 23rd April I’m once again participating in Open Bike. A comedy show performed and watched on exercise bikes. Ridiculous amounts of fun and open to every fitness level. See you there!

Post festival cabaret fun

Post Festival Cabaret fun 

– 27th April I will be hosting the inaugural Sip ‘n’ Strip at the The Bendigo Hotel in Collingwood!
Stella Del Lure is bringing you a fine range of emerging and establised artists who will Sip and Strip to their hearts content.
Join us for dinner or just for the show and experience the glamour of a classic showgirl tease, the fun of a silly neo burlesque or something somewhere in between.
This is strictly an 18+ event. Contains partial nudity
Dinner & Show: Limited Tickets available, Guaranteed front seating.

– The following night (28th April) I will be back at The Motley Bauhaus for my monthly Queer Cabaret night. I have a wonderful line up for you. I’ll share the line up with you in another email soon. Book tickets here
