Confessions of an Aerobics Instructor

"...Sometimes dirty, sometimes sweet but funny the whole way through" – We Know Melbourne

Following a sold out debut season, Joana Simmons (aka Joy) is taking the lies out of Lycra: Airing her workout and work stories as an aerobics instructor and exercising all sorts of demons from body image to active wear; gym, Jim and GIN. 

Featuring a high-powered soundtrack of pop and rock staples, original songs and honest anecdotes, Confessions of an Aerobics Instructor is pure endorphin-inducing entertainment. Joana’s background in comedy makes her non-conventional and at times nonsensical instructor and this combined with her tales of what REALLY happens in the fitness industry will not only get your heart pumping, it will touch it too.  

Prepare to ‘feel the burn’ and enjoy a strong ab workout from deep belly laughs when sweaty secrets are laid out to dry. The weight is over.

"High powered,fast paced,super energetic entertainment"

A little bit about your Speakeasy HQ Experience

Speakeasy HQ is proud to boast that it is the only vaudeville theatre to operate in Australia since the Tivoli closed in Bourke St in 1968.

Vaudeville means short performances with a variety program. An average show at Speakeasy HQ will present up to a dozen artists that range from a stand up comedian, to a ballerina and a jazz act to a tap dancer. Speakeasy HQ currently presents fours days a week, on Thursday through to Sunday.

Entree sized tapas dishes are available for purchase from our bar, and our Candy Dolls serve delicious treats all night long!
