Ali McGregor's Late-Nite Variety-Nite Night

Now in its eighth year, this cult cabaret show returns to The Famous Spiegeltent.

Let Ali McGregor (La Clique, Opera Australia & Spicks and Specks) and her band guide you through this unique variety show. It's late, the bar is open and the scene is set for the Festival's finest stand-up comedians, burlesque dancers, sideshow acts and cabaret to collide.

Previous guests have included: Julia Morris, Bob Downe, Eddie Perfect, Tim Minchin, Wil Anderson, Danny Bhoy, Adam Hills, Stephen K Amos, Sammy J, The Pajama Men, Gypsy Wood, Hamish & Andy.

"Partial nudity, offensive tricks and gorgeous song." The Age

"For anyone eager to check out a broad and rangy selection of the Comedy Festival's top cabaret, vaudeville and stand-up acts, this late-night variety special is the best-value show in town." The Age

Reviews

'Happily, McGregor has elected to squander her operatic training on us. Her songs are often bawdy, usually peculiar and always polished.

'McGregor sings between each number and while she has a cracking set of pipes, most of the songs make you laugh so hard it's difficult to know if it's her musical or comedy talents one should be concentrating on.'
