Elevan O'Clock #42 - Nikki Viveca

Nikki Viveca is a Melbourne-based comedian.  Her latest show, The Lazy Show,  is on at The Butterfly Club Feb 11 - 16. But Nikki also has three different shows coming up at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival.  Maybe her definition of "lazy" is different to mine, as that actually sounds like a lot of work.

Tickets to The Lazy Show at The Butterfly Club can be bought HERE

Elevan O'Clock #41 - Cazeleon

In this episode I talk to Caz,  the creator and performer of the femme fatale  - Cazeleon.  We discuss how she and the show were created and how telling the story of your own life's journey can stimulate your audience to maybe re-evaluate their own.

Elevan O'Clock #40 - Mamas’ Little Gayby

I probably can't describe Courtney's show any better than her poster - its about " Growing up in the 90s with lesbian mums and finding her own Queer in her heteronormative being" .  

Yes there is a lot to unpack in that, and through our conversation we do.  I think the biggest lesson I took from meeting Courtney is don't let other's define you.  Figure out your own definition and be proud of it!

You can grab tickets to the show Here

Elevan O'Clock #37 - Raven

Raven has been one of Australia's leading boylesque performers for the last decade,  even winning Mr Boylesque Australia in 2012. He has been at the forefront of boylesque growing from a handful of Australian performers to Australian boylesque troupes touring the world.  His knowledge of the history of burlesque is the roots of his performance and believes it is important to know where you've come from to know where you're going.
