About this event

"The Queen troubadour of intelligent black-comic sex balladry" (Edmonton Journal) makes her return to Australia this year with an all new show. Armed with her guitar and sharp wit, this internationally acclaimed, award-winning cabaret comedian will sing you shameless, obscenely honest songs about sex and human nature that will have you in stitches.

Provocative truths go down smooth with her incredible voice and gorgeous guitar stylings. It’s unique mix of all original music, standup comedy, wickedly inventive lyrics, and biting social commentary. Taboo tribulations and sexual liberation are wrapped up in silly debauchery and soaked in enough wine to kill a horse. Fans of Garfunkel and Oats and Tenacious D, get ready to be taken to the next level.
