Nominee Best Comedy 2018 Melbourne Fringe
Charity is kind. Charity is pure. Charity is an absolute Drama Queen.
In her sparkling Melbourne International Comedy Festival debut, Melbourne’s own Charity Werk is taking the spotlight for herself. Exploring love, theatre and growing up gay in Australia, Drama Queen is the quintessential coming-of-age story of a man in a wig, and a queen with a dream.
A Comedy Zone alumni and Best Comedy nominee (2018 Melbourne Fringe), Charity Werk has quickly established herself as “a rising star in drag and stand-up” (The Music). Combining her award-nominated comedy with scintillating covers of Aussie pop hits, Charity’s signature style has delighted audiences in sell-out shows across Australia.
Drama Queen is the perfect night out for comedy lovers, gays feeling charitable and straight girls eager to scream “yass queen!” – just don’t touch the wig, Stacy.
'Charming, sassy and a great voice to boot.' The Music
