This one-man show is centered around a character, filling out his dating app profile, he confuses the section where it asks him to describe himself in 20 characters - to mean, 20 different actual characters. So, he goes through the process of transforming into these different personas, from his butch self, to eventually a big old show queen.
The production is hysterically entertaining, with perfect comedic timing, cartoon-like expressions and 100% performance physicality. It’s got Coogi jumpers that’d make Kath and Cal envious, and there’s a seduction of a blow-up pilot that’ll make your grandma both giggle and blush. It’s chock-full of 80s tunes musical comedy, with unexpected digs at Captain Cook, Krispy Kreme and Catfishing.
