The world knows her as twinkly Aunt Hilda on TV’s Sabrina the Teenage Witch, Drew’s girlfriend on The Drew Carey show and a bikini-clad extra in Meatballs III, as well as numerous other big and small screen appearances, but this is the first time Caroline Rhea has bounced onto the Australian stage doing the thing she does best – her first love – stand-up comedy.
After a successful warm-up at the Edinburgh Fringe last year, Caroline is ready to lay us in the aisles with her take on fame, motherhood and masturbating orangutans (despite her G-rated television credentials, this is definitely not a family-friendly show). Expect the freshest, funniest and most spontaneous of performances from one of the leading ladies of the international comedy scene.
“It turns out Rhea is magic in real life, able to turn a hall full of curious Sabrina fans into Rhea-boosters...fiercely bright and immensely likeable. ****” The Scotsman
“She has the demeanour of a shut-in housewife getting indiscrete at a wedding.” Chortle.co.uk
""a self-deprecating and funny delivery that is accompanied by real warmth""
