Jude Perl and the Saga of Sugar Hope Records

By | March 2nd, 2019|comedy, music|

Jude Perl is very funny. :-) We saw her the other night in one of her 'Jude Perl and the Saga of Sugar Hope Records' shows at Gasworks in Albert Park. It was a special show because it showed a sneak peek of footage from a feature length film that will be released 'in a [...]

Sammy J and friends – Butterfly Club

By | February 3rd, 2019|comedy, music|

Sammy J's musical comedy show was being filmed / recorded for an album last night. I hope they are happy with the results. I thought that Sammy J and his friends were very funny. The night started off with the effervescent Jude Perl, who completely lit up the stage with her song about what we [...]

Best of British – Saturday night – MICF

By | April 22nd, 2018|bars and restaurants, comedy|

The last comedy that I saw in this season of MICF was the Best of British. Four acts + an MC. Each act spoke for about 10 minutes and told one main story. From the guy whose mother gave him a sky diving adventure for his birthday, because he is afraid of flying, and ended [...]

Gillian Cosgriff – So Far So Good – MICF

By | April 11th, 2018|comedy, music|

Pretty funny. It was great to go and see Gillian Cosgriff play in the beautiful Melbourne Town Hall. It would have been nice if we were able to take in a drink to see the show, but hey, it was tight arse Tuesday and tickets were nearly half the normal price. Part of the show [...]

‘Sketch me like one of your French girls’ – David Massingham – MICF

By | April 8th, 2018|art, comedy, theatre|

Even the title is provocative. A quick search of the internet reveals that there are whole discussions regarding to the deeper meaning of this quote from the Titanic movie. He was hilarious. From Zeke the recovering alcoholic at an AA meeting, who repeatedly blows his quit to the tune of 'Pina Colada', to the spam [...]

Glittery Clittery – the Fringe Wives Club – MICF

By | April 8th, 2018|comedy, music, theatre|

Amazing. The Fringe Wives Club Glittery Clittery - Consensual REBOOT was the most stunning piece of empowering musical comedy I have ever seen. The costumes were amazing (think complete sequinned pantsuits), the music was really fun (catchy cabaret), and the jokes completely hit the mark. How long is the clitoris? How many nerve endings does [...]

Puppetry of the Penis – something to see once – MICF

By | April 6th, 2018|comedy|

Maybe 6:26 pm on a Friday night, is a good time to admit to the fact that Mistress Butterfly and I went and saw Puppetry of the Penis last night at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival. It seems funnier now, looking back on it. It was kind of funny, but I was with the crowd [...]

The Aspie Hour – musical theatre – MICF – Butterfly Club

By | March 27th, 2018|comedy, music, theatre|

It is rare to see such emotional vulnerability in the world. In theatre, usually someone is 'playing' a character. There is a subtext that the character is imagined, or that it is some kind of creation of a writer, a director, a producer, and an actor. I am not saying that is a bad thing, [...]
