Melbourne International Comedy Festival proudly presents
Pippa Evan’s sexy and psychotic comedy creation, Loretta Maine, makes her Australian debut in Melbourne with songs to sing, tales to tell and bitter pain to unleash.
Trailer trash gone trashier, neurotic American singer-songwriter Loretta first made an appearance in Pippa Evans and Other Lonely People at the 2008 Edinburgh Fringe Festival. The show was a smash hit and nominated for the if.comedy Best Newcomer Award with The Scotsman recognising Pippa as a “searing talent”.
Now Loretta and her band are bringing their tight set of "delightfully deranged" (Metro,UK) songs from her new album ‘Bipolar’ to the Festival, where her hilarious jilted rage will resound with anyone who’s agonised over love, loss and the urge to wreak violent revenge.
"Comic talent and musical genius…catchy tunes, brilliant lyrics and gleeful cynicism." Edinburgh Evening News
"A fantastic wreck of a human being and a great comedy conception." Chortle (UK)
"spectacular show you could happily see more than once"
