★★★★★ ‘Witty lyricism and punchlines timed to perfection.’ - Theatre People

Nominated Best Cabaret (Perth Fringe World)

Louisa's found true love in the English language, but it's hard being a grammar nerd when there are people selling "potato's" and misusing the word 'literally' at every turn. All she really wants is someone who'll snuggle up with her on the couch and seductively whisper puns into her ear. Ideally in multiple languages. Is that too much to ask?

Join language-loving Lou as she explores the 'bien' and the 'mal' of how we communicate, from sign language gone wrong to Germany's penchant for weird and wonderful words, and figures out why she's so smitten with the written. It's nerdy. It's pun-filled. And it might just make you want to learn a language... or at least start erasing those damn stray apostrophes on café blackboards.
Tickets are based a Pay What You Can model in recognition that coronavirus has had a severe impact on the arts and entertainment, but also lots of other groups of people. If you can buy a ticket (there are options for $5 - $30) that’s GREAT! If you can’t, book a free ticket. Just make sure you like the artist’s Facebook page, share the event, or sign up to the Serious Comedy newsletter (you know, all the nice word-of-mouth stuff).
