Lady Sings it Better: Story Time hits the Melbourne International Comedy Festival
BY Lady Sings it Better | 18-Mar-2017
Award-winning comedy cabaret act, Lady Sings it Better, bring their latest show Story Time to this year's festival.
Smashing expectations with the dirtiest lyrics & prettiest harmonies around, the Ladies reinvent the worst of pop culture, performing tunes by the world’s most famous male musicians in a cabaret explosion of outrageous medleys, hilarious boyband choreography and the most bizarre euphemisms for sex the world has ever heard.
After 7 years creating 'comic cabaret gold' (The Scotsman), Lady Sings it Better know their way around a mash up, and have the accolades to prove it – recently receiving the award for Best Cabaret at the Sydney Fringe Festival 2016. For MICF, they have compiled the tallest tales of romance, rejection and ridiculousness that they could find and invite you to snuggle up and join them for Story Time – an adventure down the rabbit hole of the popular songbook… and beyond.
*** The Ladies are also offering a wheelchair accessible preview performance at the Hare Hole @ Hares Hyenas in Fitzroy on Sunday the 16th of April at 7.30pm. Tix for this show are available via: https://www.trybooking.com/book/event?eid=244330. All other performances will be staged at The Butterfly Club.***
