You’ll be in 'skitches' when comedy show comes to Gympie

AFTER sell-out shows at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Melbourne Comedy Festival and Adelaide Fringe Festival, Liz Skitch is coming home to Queensland - and believe it or not Gympie - with her intimate comic cabaret Skitch Tease.

Blending burlesque, stand-up comedy and cabaret Liz Skitch has developed a reputation as one of Australia's quirkiest comedians.

She will be in Gympie for one night only on Friday October 11 at the Heritage Theatre, Gympie; doors open 6.30pm for 7.30pm.

Scene Magazine described her as a "phenomenal comic talent".

In her show, Liz wears nothing but a pair of fishnets and a strategically placed squeezebox.

She says audiences can expect a truly revealing cabaret in Skitch Tease.

No one is safe in this tell- all tale of her extraordinary life, as she parodies her mum, ex- boyfriends, empty- headed teenage girls, loud- mouthed tourists and more.

The show is dripping with double entendre and Liz's stand-up comedy has a rollicking old vaudeville feel.

At the Melbourne Comedy Festival it was like she was "working magic" on the audience, according to The Pun magazine.

A fast-paced, accordion accompanies Liz in the sit down comedy experience.

She slips in and out of original songs, delivering sensational punch lines as though chatting with a room full of old friends.

The curly blonde comedian is naughty, but nice, and her mischievous sense of humour and cheeky smile let her get away with just about anything.

Skitch Tease is produced by Debase, the company behind the 2012 tour of Chasing the Lollyman.

Debase has been developing and touring new comic shows for more than 15 years.

They say you will laugh, sing, cheer and applaud.

Don't miss your one chance of catching Liz in Gympie.

Tickets are available at the Gympie Regional Gallery, at 39 Nash Street, Gympie.

Phone 5481 0733.
