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.

Sugar Bits Hit n Hope: A Character Cabaret

Sugar Bits Hit n Hope: A Character Cabaret

Steph, Nic and Tess are all about men. But they don't adore them; in fact they've had quite enough, thank you. So why do they keep running towards them? Is it because these guys are elegant, smart, muscular, emotionally communicative and have great relationships with their mothers? No. No it’s not.

Celebrate singledom and female empowerment by reflecting on some of the duds we’ve all dated –f#%k boys, real estate agents from Queensland, boys with arts degrees, incels and that guy who was old enough to be your dad’s dad.

Join us for the ultimate night jam-packed with character comedy, original music and killer dance routines. Because the dating pool right now is as empty as an attic covered in cobwebs, and we’re not here to f#%k spiders.

Sugar Bits is Stephanie Beza, Nicola Pohl and Tessa Luminati, a freshly baked batch of players, lightly seasoned with sublime stupidity, who, with the help of The Muses, create raucous, sugary sweet and engaging theatre for people who are veterans of character comedy, or brand-new to the style. Their hyper femininity brings a new demographic to the clown and comedy world. While their title is new, the group is not! They have been performing and writing together since their uni days and their bits have only gotten more delicious. Get ready for some silly physical comedy, absurd characters and bangin' music theatre numbers. You’re in safe (slightly sticky) hands as they guide you through a zesty and spicy evening that will leave a sweet taste lingering in your mouth.
