Subiaco Arts Centre
7th May – 9th May 2015
After 10 years of bartending and 12 years of stand up (some overlap) Jacques has weaponised his ability to sum people up on sight. His policy? Always judge a book by its cover; that’s the whole point of a cover… We all have decent intuition when we meet new people but Jacques wants to go deeper. Teaching you how to interpret body language, body art and body odour… Sharpen your ability to identify potentially dangerous stalkers, strangers, and people from Queensland… And soften the edges of your online profiles so prospective employers and life-partners don’t notice your faults until it’s too late. In just 60 minutes Jacques will show you how to transcend the stigma of being “judgmental” and become The Confident Profiler.
Hannah Gadsby : Donkey
The Octagon Theatre UWA
15th and 16th of May 2015
Hannah Gadsby returns to the Perth Comedy Festival with a brand new hour of stand-up about her new bike, Donkey, and how she will never ride the same way again.
Last year Hannah sold out shows in Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth, Hobart, Canberra and Brisbane before heading over to perform in the Edinburgh Fringe and record her own BBC radio series. She also gave the small screen a whirl with her brilliant ABC arts series Hannah Gadsby’s Oz receiving rave reviews and her acting debut on Josh Thomas’ Please Like Me.
Donkey is classic Hannah…but not as you know her.
These are just some of the great shows on for the Comedy Festival, but there are many funny shows.
