Gillian Cosgriff So Far So Good

Gillian Cosgriff So Far So Good

Award-winning musical comedian Gillian Cosgriff has been writing songs for 10 years – four solo shows, 25 festival seasons and that one time Pharrell Williams said she was amazing. (Seriously, you can google it.) She’s played to sold-out crowds and she’s played to six people. She’s played for miners, hipsters, children, and once she played the piano at a dinner for the World Scouts Foundation where the guest of honour was the King of Sweden. (That sounds like a cheese dream but it actually happened.)

She returns to Melbourne International Comedy Festival to play her favourite original songs from this varied career and rework some old songs in exciting new ways. Featuring songs from her hit festival shows, Waitressing…and Other Things I Do Well, This Is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things, Whelmed, and To The Moon & Back, and directed by Virginia Gay (All Saints, Winners & Losers), this is an unmissable night of Gillian’s best work.

'Cosgriff’s stand-up is killer… her way with music and lyrics is pure genius. ★★★★★' Herald Sun

'She’s a force to be reckoned with. This master of cabaret will continue to be a highlight of any festival she partakes in. ★★★★★' Theatre People

'A shining star… inescapably likeable. ★★★★★' The West Australian
