"Tessa Waters is a genius." - The Spinoff 

Nominee Best International Show 2017, NZ International Comedy Festival 


Multi award-winning Aussie comedian Tessa Waters returns with an hour of stonkingly outrageous sillyness.

Dance, clown and sketch collide in this ridiculous genre busting show that has upped wet pant stats drastically worldwide. A Gaulier-trained dynamo and professional idiot, Tessa’s show WOMANz broke records at Melbourne Fringe and she has toured Australasia and the UK ever since.

Think Trygve Wakenshaw at a feminist disco.

"Funny as hell!" - The Age


Adult clowning par excellence, with a hint of satirical burlesque lobbed in for good measure.
