JACINTERVENTION: JACINTA GREGORY AT SCF

Jacinta Gregory is a musical comedienne and a person who makes terrible choices. So – she invites you – her closest family, friends, loved ones, and strangers – to her intervention.

Joined by a live band, she will be performing a variety of 80s pop ballads, musical numbers, sultry jazz songs – that cover in detail, all of the awful decisions that have led to this moment, while often veering off course to sing about getting a bev with the lads after work, or missing prime minister Harold Holt.

Grab yourself a refreshment, maybe a sausage roll, and join in awkward support – for this jacintervention. Last time we saw Gregory she was Jacintigrating (SAG Review) .

JACINTERVENTION will play as part of the Sydney Comedy Festival on Saturday 19th May 5.45pm.

PLUS ONE – MADDIE PARKER DEBUTS SOLO (WITH GUEST) AT SCF

Like cocoa and sugar, they swirl theatrically together in delicious ways for 50 minutes of fun. Continue reading PLUS ONE – MADDIE PARKER DEBUTS SOLO (WITH GUEST) AT SCF

BEING HUEMAN BEING – THE MANY COLOURS OF COMEDY CHAOS

Luke Nowell really is a very naughty lad and during his show BEING HUEMAN BEING I really did threaten to tell his mother on him.  There are many hi-jinx, you see, in his show and many of them require audience participation.  Skilled gag-seeker, aaaart maker that he is, he knows a receptive face when he sees it.  And the only reason I am not telling on him is that he is charming, very charming, and hilarious and cute as a button.  Continue reading BEING HUEMAN BEING – THE MANY COLOURS OF COMEDY CHAOS

GENERATION WOMEN – DECISION MAKING STORIES TOLD LIVE

In May,  the bad ass babe club that is ‘Generation Women’ is holding their intergenerational storytelling evening on the theme ‘Sliding Doors’. Remember that 90s classic where Gwyneth Paltrow relives the moment she makes her train?

Yes, yes you do! We make choices everyday, most of them small (gym, or nap? kombucha or wine?) but over a course of a lifetime, some are quite literally life-changing. This month ‘Generation Women’ is exploring decisions that changed our lives forever, the ‘What if?’. Continue reading GENERATION WOMEN – DECISION MAKING STORIES TOLD LIVE
