Mitch Garling Cat Daddy

One fateful night in late 2017. A man and his wife attend a Christmas Party. Unbeknownst their lives are about to change forever. A stray cat wanders the party accepting chicken treats and occasionally scratching people’s necks. Days pass and the stray cat is still hanging around the property. Despite having a sore neck the man asks his wife if they should adopt the cat. A snap decision sends the couple spiraling into commitment and makes life very hard to find a rental property.

Mitch Garling is a Cat Daddy.

Following up from sold out shows at Sydney Comedy Festival in 2019, Cat Daddy comes to Melbourne for the first time. Join Mitch as he dives deep into tales of life as a 30-year-old man with four mouths to feed.

Also Mitch’s wife just had a baby which is not scary or causing further stress.
