Best of British – Saturday night – MICF

By | April 22nd, 2018|bars and restaurants, comedy|

The last comedy that I saw in this season of MICF was the Best of British. Four acts + an MC. Each act spoke for about 10 minutes and told one main story. From the guy whose mother gave him a sky diving adventure for his birthday, because he is afraid of flying, and ended [...]

Gillian Cosgriff – So Far So Good – MICF

By | April 11th, 2018|comedy, music|

Pretty funny. It was great to go and see Gillian Cosgriff play in the beautiful Melbourne Town Hall. It would have been nice if we were able to take in a drink to see the show, but hey, it was tight arse Tuesday and tickets were nearly half the normal price. Part of the show [...]

‘Sketch me like one of your French girls’ – David Massingham – MICF

By | April 8th, 2018|art, comedy, theatre|

Even the title is provocative. A quick search of the internet reveals that there are whole discussions regarding to the deeper meaning of this quote from the Titanic movie. He was hilarious. From Zeke the recovering alcoholic at an AA meeting, who repeatedly blows his quit to the tune of 'Pina Colada', to the spam [...]

Glittery Clittery – the Fringe Wives Club – MICF

By | April 8th, 2018|comedy, music, theatre|

Amazing. The Fringe Wives Club Glittery Clittery - Consensual REBOOT was the most stunning piece of empowering musical comedy I have ever seen. The costumes were amazing (think complete sequinned pantsuits), the music was really fun (catchy cabaret), and the jokes completely hit the mark. How long is the clitoris? How many nerve endings does [...]

Puppetry of the Penis – something to see once – MICF

By | April 6th, 2018|comedy|

Maybe 6:26 pm on a Friday night, is a good time to admit to the fact that Mistress Butterfly and I went and saw Puppetry of the Penis last night at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival. It seems funnier now, looking back on it. It was kind of funny, but I was with the crowd [...]

The Aspie Hour – musical theatre – MICF – Butterfly Club

By | March 27th, 2018|comedy, music, theatre|

It is rare to see such emotional vulnerability in the world. In theatre, usually someone is 'playing' a character. There is a subtext that the character is imagined, or that it is some kind of creation of a writer, a director, a producer, and an actor. I am not saying that is a bad thing, [...]

Bashka – World music Saturday

By | March 24th, 2018|art, comedy, literature, music, theatre|

It is always fun to come home after a festival and look up the music of the bands I saw. Bashka is a Turkish band, and their music feels so rich on this cosy, rainy Saturday morning. World music on the weekend. It transports me to places I have never seen but only heard about [...]

Apparently Day of the dead is a time to commemorate and remember our friends and family. It is a great opportunity to celebrate the people around us who are part of our journey on earth. I am totally feeling this today. I feel so grateful to be in this world, firstly. It is a huge [...]
