ruby wax sane new world: review

Ad Hoc
No comments

My current thesis was once described by a kindly reviewer as like ‘watching somebody psycho-analysing themselves,’ and I would call that a pretty accurate observation of my mode of research. It is an intense picking apart of ‘me-ness,’ that is the well-trodden reflexive testing ground of the mentally askew. My research considers ways that trauma…

what makes Broad City so radical?

Katerina Paltoglou
One comment

Comedy Central’s new female-based comedy, Broad City, created by and starring newcomers Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson, has been one of the most pleasantly surprising, bizarre, stoned-out-of-its-mind and profoundly funny shows TV has had to offer. Some of that can be attributed to its beginnings as a web series before making the leap to primetime,…

    The singing and dancing ladies of Bobby & The Pins have been thrust from their comfort zone into the bush, but they’re determined to keep camping classy. Melbourne;’s female cabaret quartet, Bobby & The Pins, are creatures of comfort who take inspiration from the 1950′s and the era’s stereotypical ‘lady of leisure’. Their forthcoming…

comedy review: supergirly

Brianna Doolan
One comment

    Showing from 27 May – 8 June at the Loft Theatre in Melbourne, Lulu McClatchy’s Supergirly: Return of the Pop Princess is a balance of crude potty mouth, raw Aussie humour and some pretty spot on observations about the popular music industry. Supergirly tells the tale of Lulu McClatchy’s alter ego, Supergirly; an…

Sophie Lamond
No comments

  Just as the Melbourne International Comedy Festival departs, the cool change has come over and suddenly everything is looking a little greyer and a whole lot less funny.  Luckily for me, I was able to assuage the post-MICF blues and catch  the last performance of the MICF incarnation of That Sexy Show. Taking on…

In town for the Melbourne International Comedy Festival (MICF), UK comedian Shappi Khorsandi delighted her audience with funny, insightful and poignant tales derived from her own life experiences. Stepping into the curtained Mini Main Town Hall to see Khorsandi ply her trade initially felt intimidating, but after doing her own off-stage introduction and entering dressed in…

  “We’re all a bit confused about stuff right now. Like who pays for dinner on the first date? Do I walk first through doors so you can check out my arse? Does the treatment of our first female PM indicate a chunk of people in Australia are actually mental? More importantly, does a short…

  Welcome to the magical land where everyone lives after the fairy tale’s over. Jack’s done a few too many lines, Rapunzel’s expecting her tenth and Cinderella’s found out that The Prince bats for the other team and is more interested in her arse than her slippers of glass. It’s like Shrek rewritten by Alan…
