Nicky Barry and Lucy Best Motherfu(t

Motherfu(t is a show about motherhood - the good, the bad and the sometimes really ugly.


Lucy Best and Nicky Barry are two wantonly wicked women of an uncertain age. Recent laboratory tests have confirmed that they are each 20 percent angst, 40 percent vodka and 100 percent hilarious.


Motherfu(t is a comedic exploration of all the ways that we are both f*%ked up by our mothers and then f*%ked up by motherhood itself. The show shines a light on the 364 days of the year that Hallmark will not make cards about. A mix of cabaret, improvisation, game show, chat show and stand up comedy.


Lucy and Nicky will have the audience rolling in the aisles, as they collectively laugh about all the things that haven’t quite killed them.                       

 

About Lucy: 

Lucy Best is an Australian-based British comedian, MC, writer and producer. She performs Stand Up Comedy, Cabaret, Music and Theatre around Australia and internationally.

Lucy's work regularly includes her hilarious hot takes on themes of feminism, mental health, social justice, sex positivity and gender and sexual diversity.

 

About Nicky:

Nicky Barry spent her formative years hanging out in dodgy bars with depraved social misfits. Somewhere past the age of 30, Nicky realized that this was her true calling and decided to give stand-up comedy a crack.

Her first review described her as: ”frighteningly funny”. She remains a powerhouse act whom many comics are reluctant to follow.

Affectionately known as “The Bawdy Dame of Melbourne Comedy”, Nicky is now in high demand as an MC and feature act in rooms all over Victoria and beyond. Her razor-sharp wit and brazen delivery are always a hit.

When she is good, she is really very good. When she is bad, she is bloody hilarious.
