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.

Lisa Sharpe Off My Chest

Lisa Sharpe Off My Chest

Lisa Sharpe has a few things to get off her chest. This show has no singing, dancing, fancy costumes or special effects. It's just one woman telling true stories in her frank, honest, disarming and slightly sardonic style. She doesn't want a tour of your house, to reverse the damage on her décolletage or to borrow your paddleboard; but she does want to get married in a white wedding dress.

'Sharpe is a billed as a comedian but is really a gifted story-teller who can garner empathy right alongside the laughter. That her writing is based on personal reality makes it all the more poignant, significant, and effective. Unapologetically frank and close to the bone but the genius of the writing keeps the laughs coming. Anecdote or witty, sharp one-liner, this woman can deliver.' Theatre Travels 

'The respect she earns from her audience is proof enough that she is a gifted comedian and a captivating raconteur and audiences should not delay in seeking out what she has to say.' Theatre Haus 

Suitable for audiences 13+

This show contains: Occasional coarse language.
