Melbourne International Comedy Festival acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands upon which we work and live. We acknowledge the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples' spirit, imagination and rich history of storytelling and humour that is an inspiration to all Australians.

We accept the invitation to walk together with First Nations people towards a more positive future for Australia, as described in the Uluru Statement From The Heart.

Tommy and Eadie Hot Fat Crazy

Tommy and Eadie Hot Fat Crazy

Hot Fat Crazy is our love letter to the psych ward, being fat, and a lesson in why that makes you hot!

You’ve pleaded, you’ve begged, you’ve cried and pissed and thrown up all over the place, and now we’re finally delivering... The Hot Fat Crazy album!

Come and see enemies turned lovers turned siblings turned lovers again, Tommy and Eadie, perform their silly little show for the last time ever (!), and then blast the official Hot Fat Crazy album on the way home! 

Based on Eadie’s many psych ward visits, this award-winning musical sketch comedy show ushers you into a surreal, silly and sexy fictional psych ward, where inpatients get it on, the nurses are all British guvnah and wizards cure your depression with the power of magnets. And did we mention the 27 sock puppets?!

With original songs and raucous sketches that pay homage to the weird and wonderful experiences Eadie had during her admissions, Tommy and Eadie hold your hand (ours are sweaty sorry!) through this absurd journey from the start of your 55-minute psych hold right up until your discharge papers are processed!

Hot Fat Crazy debuted at the 2023 Melbourne International Comedy Festival with a completely sold out season. During their 2023 Melbourne Fringe season, Tommy and Eadie won the SA Tour Ready Award, were nominated for Best Cabaret and Best Emerging Artist, scored five Judge’s Picks, snapped up rave reviews and had their season extended!

They’ve kicked off 2024 with music festival performances, an Adelaide Fringe season and line-up spots all across Melbourne. After being begged and badgered by many adoring fans, Tommy and Eadie have finally decided to give the people what they want – an album and also they will have sex with all of you. 

“What an absolute joy. I thought I was in a John Waters musical, so camp and so much sass, definitely ones to watch!" Fringe Judge

"Killer vocals, great original songs. Fun way to handle heavy topics. Crazy Ex Girlfriend meets Hot Department. Also, puppets!" Fringe Judge

"Honest, heartfelt, hilarious musical theatre stylings from a fantastic comedy duo." Fringe Judge

'It takes a particular talent in writing (aided by snappy direction from Aubrey Flood) to make matters of mental illness into entertainment like this.' Australian Arts Review

'Fearless and fierce performances... vocals that roll off the tongue like soothing honey... both of them bounce off each other wonderfully, complimenting their characters all the way.' Weekend Notes

'Absolutely not to be missed.' Chuck Moore Reviews
