Lisa Sharpe Drown 'Em Out

IN PERSON

Lisa Sharpe Drown 'Em Out

A gritty, hilarious and triumphant story from a masterful storyteller about finding a platform for her feisty and honest voice that she had lost somewhere along the way, in a small Australian coastal town in the '70s and '80s.

At 48 years old, Lisa Sharpe discovered stand-up comedy and in delighting audiences with her funny and true stories, she found her voice again. Now a 52-year-old menopausal woman, her voice is louder and stronger than ever. The audience will leave the theatre feeling like they can achieve anything, and no-one will dare to ignore their voice again.

'Hands down one of the best storytellers of our time. Funny, charming and able to paint a picture with words and imagery which leaves you with always wanting more.' John Peacock, The Comedy Commune

A gifted comedian and a captivating raconteur.  – Theatre Haus - Alley Edwards Reviewer
