Work Hard, Live Weird

Lisa-Skye Spiders Wearing Party Hats

This Festival showcases many great stand-up comedy and storytelling shows. They’ll be performed by palatably quirky people in jeans and t-shirts, sharing ‘unique’ world views that gratifyingly mesh with your own outlook. These shows will be great. See them. But afterwards, you’re going to wanna hear about punching dudes in Berlin sex clubs and accidentally taking hallucinogens in international airports. Papa Skye has you covered there.

A show about working hard and living weird. Adventures, hedonism and madness from the belly of the Sparklebeast.

Praise for Lisa-Skye:
'★★★★½' Adelaide Advertiser
'★★★★' Herald Sun
'★★★★' Theatre People
'★★★★' Harlot Overdrive

'Funny, clever, occasionally confronting, ultimately joyous.' Crikey

'Lisa-Skye is quite possibly unlike anyone you have ever encountered… but definitely someone who you wish was in your circle of friends.' What's On Comedy

'Stark raving genius... funny as f*%k.' 
Tim Ferguson, DAAS

The beautiful punters of Lisa-Skye's home town have asked, and we listened: Spiders Wearing Party Hats was meant to end on Tuesday, April 5, but we're announcing two extra shows! 

Saturday 2 April, 4pm matinée: Wheelchair Accessible Relaxed Performance. 

What is a 'Relaxed Performance'?

The National Theatre UK explains it well: 'Relaxed Performances are specifically designed to welcome people who will benefit from a more relaxed performance environment, including people with an Autism Spectrum Condition, sensory and communication disorders, or a learning disability. There is a relaxed attitude to noise and movement... An easy way to understand the atmosphere is perhaps, 'the opposite of the quiet carriage on the train'.


Monday 11 April, we're moving to the big room for one night only! 

Due to overwhelming demand, we've found an extra date at Tuxedo Cat so we're doing a FINAL show at 9.45pm on Monday 11 April, the final Monday of the Fest!
