Cath Styles in SHIFT at Melbourne International Comedy Festival 2016

EXCITING TIMES! My gorgeous and talented friend Cath is back at Melbourne International Comedy Festival with a brand new show, SHIFT!

I’ve always found it fascinating how Cath juggles her professional career psychiatric nursing, with her passion and love for comedy. She nails both but add in family, friends, and life as well as your two work lives…. things get interesting.

It’s on from 5-17th April and we’ve got 2 x Double Passes to giveaway.

Tell us when and how you have lived a double life?

We invite you to explore the craziness of a way of life where strange is normal, and normal is strange as Cath Styles presents her new show SHIFT at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival 2016.

Cath Styles has been a psychiatric nurse for 25 years, and a comedian for 10. Between the nights, evenings, weekends and holidays she’s worked in both jobs, she’s never had a weekend off. Ever! Shift is the show where both her worlds collide, and explores her on again, off again, love affair with her (paying!) job.

No stranger to finding the funny in the dark and bizarre, the creator of festival favourite Darkness and Light blends stand-up and storytelling to tell touching, and twisted tales of her enduring 25 year fling with psych nursing.

The show will run from April 5 to 17 at The Downstairs Lounge at the Grand Mercure Hotel at 6.30pm. Details for…

Looking forward to seeing “A Sunburnt History: Citizenship” MICF 2014

I’m very excited for MICF – Melbourne International Comedy Festival starting in just 10 days and to see one of my favourite shows again!!! With a difference. Last year I loved “A Sunburnt History: The First Fleet” and it stood out as one of my Top 5 shows of the fest and it’s back with a difference. This year it’s called “Citizenship and I cannot wait to see what’s in store!

50,000 years ago the first immigrants arrived on Australian shores, they also happened to be the first Australians. Following a solid 49,774 year hiatus, there’s been a steady influx of migrants from all around the world. Looking at Queensland’s slavery, the Mabo Decision, and the biggest gaffe of all, The White Australia policy, we find out what it really means to be an Australian.

As with Previous incarnations, audiences can expect a fast-paced, entertaining, funny and informative tale that will analyse how all of our differences actually bring us closer together. Be constantly surprised and intrigued by Australia’s Complicated and unique approach to immigration.

A Sunburnt History is getting back to doing what it does best, busting myths and shaking Aussie history ‘til the truth falls out.
