“Fox: red-haired omnivorous species introduced to Australia and widely considered a pest. Adept at getting into and out of sticky situations.”
“Poncing: magnificent, sparkling self-assured pomp and strut, oftentimes onstage. Reclaimed pejorative.”
Her hero is dead, and she’s realising becoming a songwriter might have been a terrible career move; nevertheless, Geraldine Quinn (The Weekly, Spicks & Specks, RocKwiz, Upper Middle Bogan) is back with a new original show. After all, if you admire a guy who releases an album three days before he kicking the bucket, taking a break isn’t an option.
Fox Poncing bends genres, twists musical and gender stereotypes and asks some hard questions about Australia’s cultural cringe along the way. But most of all it is a suite of new songs from an award-winning cabaret artist who has a frankly baffling amount of bespoke sequinned jumpsuits in her wardrobe.
Featuring Mark Jones (keyboards), Sonja Horbelt (drums) and Tristan Courtney (bass). NO SHOW MONDAY. CHEAP TIX TUES, GROUP (6+) AND LAUGHPACK.

- Monday 3 April @ 9pm

The 80s wasn't all parties, rah-rah skirts and side-ponytails. It was The Cold War. Chernobyl. The Berlin Wall. And the best brancing about in pop music history.
Yes, the sold out mania of Sunglasses at Night is back for three nights only - Mondays at 9pm at Melbourne Town Hall during the Melbourne International Comedy Festival. After all, we seem to be entering a second Cold Wat era - we better brush up on our moody pop! Inflate those luft balloons and pout to the tunes of Ultravox, Spandau Ballet, Bonnie Tyler, Pat Benatar, Duran Duran - and many more - as Quinn and accompanist Cameron Thomas dig through this fabulous era to present a lovingly parodic, hilarious and exotic interactive cabaret like none other.
Lyrics and dance moves supplied. Prizes for best Eurocentric 80s glamour outfit. DOn your shades. Pop your collar. You DO like Mondays; tell me why.
SOLD OUT MELBOURNE AND PERTH FRINGE WORLD.
