Queenie Bon-Bon I Made My Bed, You Lie In It

Fluff your pillows and shake down your duvet as you enter sex worker Queenie Bon-Bon’s Bureau of Pleasure. A magnificently mucky and heartwarmingly tender tour of their magical, messy universe.

Following sell-out tours in Australia, Europe and North America, Bon-Bon is bringing this sold-out 2019 Melbourne Fringe show to Melbourne International Comedy Festival audiences for the first time. Known for their triumphant fringe festival crowd favourites Power Up and Welcome to the Mystic Hole, this political comedic writer, performance artist, pleasure-provider and fantasy maker will answer questions you never even knew you had, and arm you with knowledge and power within your own unique shell… 

What are the intimate spaces that we move through? What part of me is shared with you? And why can't we all be adult about adult industries?

Bodies. Bonds. Beginnings. Navigating the voyage we take in our wondrous and leaky vessels.

Bon-Bon combines hilarious storytelling with amazing truthiness about being what it is to be human. Their humour is as dry as their tales of sex work are moist, or in some cases awash with fluids that no amount of baby wipes and cushions will soak up!

This  show is hilarious, metaphysical and totally unique! 

‘Queenie Bon-Bon's blend of theatre, storytelling and comedy is brilliant, timely and hilarious. With an open heart and inquisitive mind Queenie takes the audience on multiple journeys from the quietly mundane to the frankly absurd. In placing sex workers not as the punchline but as the centre, Queenie dishes out personal-political commentary that will leave your stomach in stitches and your heart warm.’ Zahra Stardust

‘An effortless storyteller who will make you cry laughing.’ Bella Green 

‘Unlike anyone in the Australian cultural landscape. They’re also very, very good at what they do… Set adrift on a boat of Queenie's making, and sail through outrageous situations and unforgettable truths.' Lisa Skye
