The Very Good Looking Initiative Let's Get Practical! Live

The Very Good Looking Initiative Let's Get Practical! Live

WINNER Melbourne Fringe Best Emerging Performance Ensemble Award

NOMINATED Melbourne Fringe Best Performance Award

NOMINATED Green Room Award Best Ensemble in Independent Theatre

Back by popular demand, Let's Get Practical! Live heralds the triumphant return of the award winning trolls of the Melbourne theatre scene, The Very Good Looking Initiative (TVGLI).

Creating experimental and subversive anti-theatre, this latest season serves up Melbourne International Comedy Festival audiences some of Melbourne's very own outstanding local talent. It's new, it's dangerous, it's excruciatingly wonderful.

Let’s Get Practical is Australia's most popular talk show! Hosted by Mister Practical himself, Elliott Gee, this late night viewing favourite serves up non-stop entertainment and the biggest names around. A fast-paced, high energy, anxiety-inducing show, Let's Get Practical! Live will have audiences wanting to get down and dance, or get up and leave.

For the first time ever the show will be performed live! So theirs* no room for mistakes. Imagine if the whole show failed? Hahahah ;P Xx

A superbly crafted, chaotic dark comedy, audiences won’t experience anything else quite like it at this years’ Melbourne International Comedy Festival.
