Papa Don't Preach (February 2010):

A spoken word event with daddy issues!

Gendermash (July 2009):
Goth V Nerd: Disenchantment Lane (April 2009):
Lisa is a goth. Nick is a nerd. See her tackle living with evil grandmothers, horrific girliness and the inner workings of a subculture. See him desperately try to find any culture that'll have him. Laugh. Think. Be glad you're not them.
Nick asks: 'in this cynical world, is there anything a smart-arsed slacker can truly believe in? And if so, will I have to do anything about it?'
Lisa asks: 'will there be tits?'
She comes directly from a sell-out season at the 2008 Melbourne Fringe Festival. He comes directly from the misanthrope inside your mind. Lisa discusses being the only goth at a gym from the inside. Nick discusses the political world from the outside. It's two shows (and at least seven serious personality disorders) for the price of one. Shop around. Outside of a fish market, you can't beat that price.
Take a stroll down Disenchantment Lane.
Mummy Dearest (January 2008)
As part of Midsumma. The first event I single-handedly organised. I MCed, reading out a list-piece about lies friends’ mothers (and my own) told.
Despite the 40-degree day we had a packed house, presumably because people wanna hear about mums more messed up than theirs.
The ‘G’ in Goth, the C@#t in Homewares (September 2008)
My Fringe Festival show with Megan Petrie. We were reviewed in the Groggy Squirrel (see the Media section). This was my first long show, (but at a little under 25 minutes my section wasn’t exactly epic). It was also my first real, official go at stand up. It went quite well, even though I spoke so fucking quickly.
Come As You Are II: Come Harder (February 2008)
As part of Midsumma. Co-organised with Jenny again, because she’s awesome. I MCed.
