It was just like any other Sunday evening as I sat in the audience of the Palms theatre at Melbourne’s Crown Casino. However, on this particular evening, two men were about to walk onstage, throw off their cloaks, and perform for a paying audience the ‘ancient art of genital origami.’... Read More | Share it now!
A bundle of energy greets you with when you take your seat at Tessa Waters’ Fully Sik. High fives pumping music and a pillow fight start things off. You’d call it a little absurd if the only type of fare you’re used to in comedy theatre is someone telling jokes into the microphone.... Read More | Share it now!

I saw his show at last year’s MICF and looooved it, but there is something about this year’s that is a whole other level. Yes, Creasey will bring plenty of LOLs and have you cry-laughing every second, but what you’ll come to learn of him is his softer side and the heartfelt adoration for two very special women in his life (apart from his mum) – Joan Rivers and Carrie Fisher.
