  • OTHER STUFF

    Burlesque - Laura Boxx

    Lauren performs as Laura Boxx, and is a freshman burlesque performer appearing at Burlesque Idol, Moulin Beige, Melbourne Fringe Club, and her own alternative burlesque night with Nicole Henriksen, Linda's Motley Revue.

     

    Laura Boxx is a tight lid that needs a pair of strong hands to open her. Behold the treasure within! A perky set of jumblies, legs for weeks, and a grin wider than her me down theres. Gaze in awe as you wonder if she's had any work done, is that a scar or a pimple, and is she supposed to be sexy or funny? The answers are no but definately soon, it's from a tragic boating accident and a big fat YES to both!

    Radio Variety Hour

    with Sam Marzden and Bert Goldsmith

    Radio Variety Hour is an hour-long comedy theatre show unlike anything you've seen (or heard) since about 1950... part loving parody and part improvised chaos. With the trio playing all characters, performing sound effects live on stage with a variety of household objects, singing old-time ads and often laughing more than the crowd, Radio Variety Hour is a comedy with something for everyone.

     

    "The three comedians effortlessly create three distinct worlds over the course of the hour. Using a stunning array of live foley, unbelievable vocal skills and off-the-wall imagination it is a production quite unlike any other."
