If you had to pitch your show to a stranger, what would you say?
It’s 75 minutes of comedy skits, political satire, stand up, music and film celebrating and featuring First Nations, gender diverse, disability and neuro-diverse communities. A no-holds-barred poke at conservative politics.
What does your show say about society today?
That finally we are starting to put ableism, racism, sexism and old bigoted ideas away; laughing heartedly at their demise as they fall to the societal pavement like the fallen ice cream scoop of a bawling RWNJ.
What do you want the audience to take away from your show?
The magnificence of transgender diversity advocate Sally Goldner (AM), musicality of First Nations environmentalist James Williams, guts of double amputee superstar Kath Duncan, edginess of Jewish mental health advocate Yvonne Fein and the quirkiness of neuro-divergent truth-bomber Jacci Pillar.
Where do you plan to take your show after Melbourne Fringe?
We plan to do a showcase like this every eight weeks or so. We plan on making Tickets on Myself a Melbourne icon representing diversity in the arts. Then we are hitting up TV and taking it national.
Who absolutely should not come to your show?
Alan Jones or people passionate about Pauline Hanson or Cory Bernardi (or conservative values at all really).
Tickets on Myself comes to the Fringe Hub, Trades Hall on Thursday September 12. For those not able attend, the event can be live streamed online with more details and tickets available via the Fringe website.
