A powerhouse in the heady world of "One-Man Theatre", Gavin Roach makes his Melbourne International Comedy Festival debut this year with 'All The Songs I Can"t Sing'; a celebration of one man's limitations, his yearning to take to the stage, and his desire to share with an audience the songs that have touched him right on his soul. And other places.

Running from the 28th of March to the 8th of April, 'All The Songs I Can"t Sing' adequately highlights that Gavin can"t sing. Well, maybe. He sometimes hits the notes. Rarely though. He"s tone deaf and has no concept of pitch. Nor does he have any appealing vocal quality. But dammit, that"s not going to stop him from trying. Or asking people to pay to watch.

"I grew up thinking that I could sing, without ever being able to differentiate between notes. Even during primary school performances, I couldn't understand why the audience was grimacing while I sung. I assumed it was everyone else? Once I found out and the tears and disbelief settled, I still felt utterly deflated and that I would be disappointing the masses. This is my chance to finally give something back.", explains Gavin.

Since 2011"s smash hit Confessions of a Grindr Addict Gavin Roach has also inflicted Any Womb Will Do, I Can"t Say the F Word and The Measure of a Man on SOLD OUT houses in Melbourne. He has had hugely successful national and international tours of his work, and it should then come as no real surprise to anyone that he was the 2016 Artist of the Year at the GLOBE Community Awards.

With songs like Walking on Sunshine, Like a Prayer and Dancing On My Own in the mix, All The Songs I Can"t Sing promises to serve up more of Gavin"s trademark vibrancy, wit, and never-ending attempts to overachieve. It"s the pitch perfect show to catch during the 2017 MICF.
