5 Good Reasons to See Charisa Bossinakis – None Taken

1. I play Cardi B at some point in the show

2. You get to hear about the time I almost got abducted in Cuba, never again will you get the opportunity to laugh at something so traumatic. Unless you see someone wearing Uggs publically, then I give you my blessing to laugh at them, but also cry at the dismal realisation that someone thought it was ok to wear those things of the house, maybe they thought it was a sexy moonboot? But then again a sexy moonboot is like a sexy Peter Dutton, there’s no such thing.

3. I’m performing at the Belleville and they have the best-fried chicken (sorry Colonel). Come for the deliciousness and the chicken as well!

4. I will show you my tits, and by tits I mean….

I hate myself for doing that

5. Buy a ticket and it’ll go towards feeding my German Shepherd, if you don’t, he will have no food. Also picture of him below:

5 Good Reasons to See: Oliver Cowen – Straight White Knight

1. “Don’t pick up the phone, you know he’s only calling cos he’s drunk and alone.” (Dua Lipa, 2017) aka it is DEEP and THOUGHT-PROVOKING.

2. Are you very, very, very easily impressed? This show has got you covered.

3. A man is wearing a trenchcoat and is NOT naked underneath! For once!

4. A silent knight attempts to dismantle the patriarchy through the medium of physical comedy based jokes and puns.

5. Bravery. Do you like it? Do you thrive on it? Do you somewhat dispute it? This knight-boy experiences and re-experiences it before your very eyes.

Straight White Knight is on at Belville from September 17 to 23
