Fiannah de Rue Here Come the Blues

Twenty-three years ago, the Carlton Blues won the AFL Grand Final. It was the best day of Carol’s life. Since that day, however, Carol has endured a steady stream of heartaches, watching her once-proud club crumble into mediocrity. With nothing left to lose, Carol has made it her mission to end Carlton’s drought and get the boys to the finals. She will stop at nothing as she faces the greatest challenge in modern football history… making the Blues good again.

Here Come the Blues is an eclectic sketch show for footy fans and comedy fans alike. Following the journey of Carlton-tragic Carol, we meet old and new favourites of the game from Anthony Koutoufides to that foul-mouthed old lady in the crowd, and everyone in between. Whether you’re a die-hard tragic like Carol or a band-wagon Doggies fan from 2016, you’ll find plenty to laugh at in this delightful take on Australia’s favourite game.

Fiannah de Rue is an actor, comedian and improviser who made her solo comedy debut in 2018 with It’s Not Funny at  Melbourne International Comedy Festival and Melbourne Fringe. Described as 'an energetic comedy zealot who was born to entertain' (Weekend Notes), Fiannah has been performing with The Improv Conspiracy since 2016.

Written by Fiannah de Rue and Mario Hannah (The Comedy Channel’s The Slot).

Directed by Caitlyn Staples (Hit by a Blimp, Bella Green is Charging for It).
