The Ladies Lounge

THE LADIES LOUNGE AT CUSHION

Thursday 31st January 2013

The Ladies Lounge Comedy Night will make it’s debut at Cushion Lounge Jan 31st 2013. The idea was borne when Bev Killick saw the need for a regular all female lineup in Melbourne after featuring at many herself and travelling around the country in all girl shows. “Women audience members really enjoy the whole secret women’s business aspect, it becomes a real party atmosphere very quickly” The night becomes like a Hen’s Night or Divorce Party. Grab a posse and laugh way out loud to an all female line up.

Jan 31st features Fiona O’Loughlin.

“I have been in and out of depres

sion over the last few years. I know from first hand how important it is to have an organisation counsel and help you. For me personally, going to Peru has been a dream for a while and now it’s coming true! It’s going to be a brilliant recovery trip for me and my system to reboot and to welcome positivity back into my life.” Abel

YO Adrian!

Adrian has lead the production team at the Festival for 20 years and has been responsible for helping out newcomers as well as production management, lighting design and stage management of countless shows and tours for Australia’s most popular comedians.

Adrian’s professional community are rallying to raise funds to assist his ongoing care and rehabilitation - and they’re not kidding about raising some serious cash. Don’t miss this opportunity to be part of this special one-off show. Supporting one of Australian comedy’s production superheroes.

Friday Flashback - Bev Killick

This weeks flashback is bought to us by Bev Killick who you can see at the Brisbane Comedy Festival this weekend. Click here to see more of Bev’s tour dates

Bert Kaempfert A Swingin’ Safari (by boswell69)

This is what Bev says about this gem:

When it comes to music I am a TOTAL dag. I love a good chintzy retro record….yep you heard it…..Record!

I lived in St Kilda for most of my 20’s in a fabbo house. The record player was always on with the likes of Trini Lopez…..Sunny yesterday my life was filled with pain….. and Englebert Humperdinck..Quando Quando Quando…. But the one album of the collection that always got the sillyness started was Bert Kaempfert’s SWINGING SAFARI…..with my all time popular favourite Afrikaan Beat. Seriously, you just try putting it on at a party and not get a reaction. And I’m talking real daggy dancing. Don’t just take my word for it…have a listen… a smile will cross your face and you’ll start swinging your arms with fists together tyrannasaurus rex fashion and pick up that Safari beat…
