A new comedy by KATIE O’BRIEN
“Side-splittingly funny... tantamount to a work of genius.” ★★★★★ Everything Theatre
A physical character comedy show exploring engagement and expression
with an audience by acclaimed comedian Katie O’Brien.

changing incident discovered she had a unique talent for healing

Step inside Katie’s world of loveable eccentrics, including:
people’s physical and emotional ailments through song.
Disheveled washed up Trishelle brings life wisdoms, a
sensitive soul baring all.
This is O’Brien’s first solo show after studying Clown and theatre with Philippe Gaulier for a
year and doing several workshops with Phil Burgers, Mick Barnfather and Spymonkey. Katie
has been developing this show in collaboration with Lucy Hopkins (creator and performer of
highly acclaimed Le Foulard (Art Show) “High art has never been funnier.” - The Age). Bold

Her unhinged and endearing characters hilariously embody the duality of comedy and tragedy.
