One woman, one audience member, no script. This is a crazy experimental and exciting idea I’ve had for a while but have only just gotten the guts to make happen! In developing the idea I’ve employed the help of the fantabulous TJ Mannix – Head of the New York Musical Improv Festival and an all round legend I was very excited to meet last year during my mad overseas jaunt. Anyway, the resulting show will be launching this Friday night at the amazing Queensland Cabaret Festival! It’s one night only and tickets are 20% off if you book online. Would…

Writing and performing An Unexpected Variety Show has been one of the hardest, most thrilling, painful and exhilarating experiences of my life. The content of the show itself forms an emotional rollercoaster, so it seems fitting that my own ride performing it, from the insecurity of launching it at the Melbourne Fringe where nobody knew who the heck I was, to the complete out of the blue delight of it winning the Cabaret Award at that same festival, to a rocking season at Adelaide Fringe, to even being accepted into a festival in NYC this year (an opportunity it PAINED…
