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…

I’ve been working both my buttocks off recently on…da da da da! A whole new show!!! Very exciting namely cos: 1) It’s about vikings. 2) I get to dress up as a viking. 3) It’s a rock opera. A very, very silly rock opera. 4) It’s directed by Russell Fletcher (of Spontaneous Broadway fame and umpteen other fabulous things) 5) Musical direction is by my fab mate Peta Wilson (who you may have seen in about a gazillion brilliant Brissie bands including Fuschia, CucaShop and others, plus in last year’s “Wonderland” season at Brisbane Comedy Festival) It’s always ridiculously nerve-wracking putting…

This weekend was personally epic on several levels. 1. It was my hubby’s and my 10th wedding anniversary. 2. We celebrated in a last-minute hotel splurge in the city, to coincide with… 3. Closing night of my brief but delish run of “An Unexpected Variety Show” at Brisbane Powerhouse… …a show which was: – nicely packed! – interpreted by the INCREDIBLE Ruth Sullivan (who I adore more and more each time we work together…so much excitement is happening with this partnership, I can’t wait to spill more news soon once things get locked in!) – attended for the very first…

You know when you have an idea of the “that would be so cool if…” variety but then it just kinda disappears into the ether? Well, that’s kinda what happened last Woodford Folk Festival, when the fabulous Auslan interpreter Ruth Sullivan and I connected on (and off) the comedy stage. We had so much fun doing our thing together – I absolutely LOVE what interpreting brings to the performance, indeed you can read what Adam Hills wrote about it (far more eloquently than I) over here – that we floated off into the Woodford breeze, making exclamations about how cool…

Hey guys, So reality has hit hard, as it usually does post-festival in what I’ve come to call PTSD: Post Tour Sadness Disorder/Disorientation. Back to regular blogging shortly, I’ve really needed this week just to decompress, re-connect with the fam and of course, catch up on about five kilometres of housework. I like to measure it in distance terms. It makes me feel athletic. In the meantime… – Only 1 more sleep til Brisbane Powerhouse shows start! 2 shows only folks, and when I checked yesterday tix sales had doubled within a day. AGH! (Admittedly they were pretty slow to…
