5 Good Reasons to see Lauren Edwards: Live, Laugh, Lauren

1. Living. There are no tragic deaths in this show; everyone lives. In fact, this show is very good for your health and wellbeing.
2. Laughing. There is definitely some laughing. Hopefully a lot of laughing.
3. Lauren. That’s me; I’m Lauren. I’m in this show and I’m pretty cute. I like sheet masks.
4. This is my MICF debut, so you’d be able to tell people you were there at the very beginning before I got super famous and started a cult following of devotees who come to visit me and my dog, Grant, at our yoga retreat on the Gold Coast.
5. I don’t actually have a dog called Grant, but if lots of people come to the show I could afford to buy one.

5 Good Reasons to See Wailing Sarah – Apology Tour

1.      Ripped from the headlines – Remember all the out-of-touch things rich celebrities said and did last year? Put them all into a blender and you have Australia’s #1 WAG, and foot-in-mouth expert, Talia Arnott-Brown.

2.      Variety – Apology Tour has been designed as a raucous mix of scripted comedy and improv. Every night will follow the same path but you the audience will play a large part in making each night unique and unforgettable.

3.      Girl Power – Apology Tour is led by two emerging comedic performers, Sarah Nicolazzo and Aisling Rose McGrogan playing Talia and her put-upon assistant Ainsley respectively. They have cut their teeth in the local improv scene and have both made award nominated comedy shows for the web. This is their live debut together.

4.      Guests – Each night Talia will welcome to the stage a special guest played by a different improviser. Who will they be playing? They will find out when you do! Stay tuned to our socials for the line-up of funny faces dropping in each night.

5.      Surprises – Sarah Nicolazzo is a woman of many faces (and wigs), check out her Instagram account @wailingsarah to meet the gang, and keep your eye out for an appearance from a fan favourite during the show.

Wailing Sarah – Apology Tour runs for five shows only, March 24 to 28, 7.30pm at Campari House.

5 Good Reasons To See Big Big Big: Catching Jack

1. There is no risk of dysentery. While our show takes place in the 1800s, we
are very clean people who wash “regularly.”

2. We built a massive Big Ben, like it’s really big. I don’t know what more you people could want.

3. Watch us solve a 150 year old mystery. It’s about time someone caught Jack The Ripper, and you have the chance to witness it personally. It’ll be quite the dinner party story.

4. Rats features heavily throughout this production – nature’s kindest
creature. Did you know that their teeth never stop growing?

5. We don’t do British accents. You don’t want it. We don’t want it. You’re
safe.

5 Good Reasons To See Emo: Black Santa

2. Experience culture shock firsthand through the eyes of a South Sundanese refugee.

3. Emo is an award-winning comedian and has a true gift for taking you on a journey through his storytelling.

4. Emo has not only performed across Australia, but through some of America’s biggest cities. From Toronto and at the JFL Comedy Festival in Montreal, all the way to New York City.

5. Not only is he exciting to listen to, but he’s also actually not bad to look at either.

5 Good Reasons To See Scott Limbrick: The Last Blockbuster on Earth

1. The resolution is unbelievable. Forget Blu-ray, DVDs, VHS or laser discs. This show will be as visually sharp as reality itself, maybe even sharper.

2. It’s fun for the whole family! But if it had to go through the film classification board, it would probably get an M15+.

3. You won’t believe how many genres this show can fit in it. I’d say at least nine – such is the power of the video hire store.

4. No need to rewind. I physically cannot do the show in reverse! You are in absolutely no danger of witnessing this.

5. No late return fees. You literally can’t return this show, so there is no way you can be charged for being tardy in doing so. Instead, you can keep it as a treasured memory forever.
