TESSA WATERS OVER PROMISES

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.

TESSA WATERS - FULLY SIK

Fully Sik sits somewhere in between Broad City and the Boosh with an original soundtrack composed by Robin Waters (keyboardist with Ella Hooper and Producer at Glamour Trowell Studios). A real force-of-nature performer, Tessa Waters explodes on the stage and delivers a non-stop roller coaster of LOLs, combining her multitude of talents for physical comedy, sketch and dance, jam-packed into one high-octane hour.

Fully Sik is a show that’s loud, ludicrous and dumb, even when tackling the capital-I Issues that are spelled out in comically over-exaggerated fashion. Channeling the sass and charm of iconic comedian Tina Fey, Tessa carries the same cheeky glint in her eyes throughout as she uses audience participation in an inclusive and consensual way. Feminism can be brought close to the surface – but this is not really ‘about’ anything other than having a good time: an hour of cheerful comedy from a self-confessed ‘carnie from the country’, played big and boisterous rather than intellectualised or preachy.

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