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.

The Butterfly Club presents

Neptune Henriksen Being A Woman For Money

Sex sells, but gender sells out.

Neptune Henriksen is back! In their first comedy hour since 2016, the critically-acclaimed tour-de-force delves into gender, capitalism and desirability, through a queer lens.

Neptune tackles these topics with grace, humour and their award-winning, off-the-walls physicality. In a fast-paced, absurdist, queer-as-f#%k show, for the outsiders, the weirdos and the curious.

Being A Woman For Money pulls no punches, answering the questions you’re too afraid to ask and embracing being in on the joke.

'A perfectly pitched hour.' ★★★★★ The Scotsman (UK)

'A thoughtfully created piece which is truly relevant, as well as funny.' ★★★★★
Ed Fest Mag (UK) 

'Beyond superb.' ★★★★★ Theatre Reviews (UK)
