Australian/British author Kathy Lette returns to Australia for two stand-up performances including an appearance at Just For Laughs Sydney.
“Deliciously rude and darkly funny” Nicole Kidman
It’s a psychological striptease taking us from Puberty Blues to Menopause Blues, with tales of love, lust, men, marriage, pregnancy, childbirth, mastitis, sexist bosses, teenage-daughter-wrangling, ageing, toyboys, making the Queen laugh, hiding Julian Assange in her attic, tongue kissing Prince William and Close Encounters of the George Clooney Kind, en route.
She also talks poignantly about the trials, tribulations, and hilarity of raising a child on the autistic spectrum. So, grab your girlfriends and come along. Wit, warmth and full-frontal frankness guaranteed. (Men, attend at your own risqué!)
Kathy Lette is a celebrated and outspoken comic writer with an inimitable take on serious issues. With 14 best-selling novels to her name, including Puberty Blues (later made into a movie and television series) and Mad Cow (with the movie starting Joanna Lumley and Anna Friel) she is one of the pioneering voices of contemporary feminism. She cites her career highlights to include once teaching Stephen Fry a word, Salman Rushdie the limbo and scripting Julian Assange’s cameo in the Simpsons 500th episode.
Come and have a Girls’ Night Out with Kathy Lette!
