The Musical Comedy Jukebox – Fringe 2021

I am so incredibly excited to announce my debut show at the Melbourne Fringe Festival 2021: The Musical Comedy Jukebox. A dash of theatre, a pinch of comedy, a splash of cabaret and a smidge of technology set this up to be a unique, high-energy musical experience.

After 18 months of online performances during COVID, I expected to bring my digital shows to life. But with Melbourne’s extended lockdown, I’ll be back behind the camera! An on-screen QR code lets you control the song list and some unique interactions. Every show will be a totally unique experience.

My original songs draw from the moments we all experience; wasting hours on the phone to call centres, accidentally telling an inappropriate joke at the office, family dramas at Christmas… You’ll laugh. You’ll cry. You’ll want to see the show more than once. And my Sunday show is kid-friendly!
