Nominee Best Newcomer & Golden Gibbo Awards 2010 Melbourne International Comedy Festival
Stuck in suburbia with too much to say, Poet Laureate Telia Nevile is doing the only thing left open to a word-obsessed socially inept artiste. She’s broadcasting a radio show from her bedroom and you’re invited over to pump up the volume.
Come turn the amps up to 11 with beautifully crafted tongue-in-cheek poetry backed by music ranging from death metal to bubblegum pop. Don’t miss nu-jazz exposition ‘Because I’m Deep (I’m Deep in Thought)’, the ear-drum shattering mayhem of ‘Grammar Grindcore’, and the swooning saccharine stickiness of ’Love, La-ove, Love, La-ove, La La La La La Love’.
