Become a Functional Adult in 45 Minutes at Melbourne Fringe

Do you get told to grow up a lot? Let this Fringe Fest show be your guide into adulthood...

Hot off the heels of her sold-out season at Perth Fringe World 2015, the multi-talented Sophie Joske is bringing her one-woman show to the Melbourne Fringe Festival.

Sophie's Facebook page describes her as a stand-up & improvisation comedian, journalist, actor and writer who also does other entertainment based things. The one thing she's not is a grown up. That's why this isn't just a Fringe Fest theatre show; it's stand-up meets self-help.

According to Joske, her show tells 'the story of a narcissistic woman-child trying to figure it all out, complete with educational videos and helpful tricks to help us all be a bit more functional'.

Become a Functional Adult in 45 Minutes takes its audience into Sophie's attempted journey out of kidulthood and into some form of maturity, or in her own words 'a silly, surreal and at times dark look at whether anyone ever really grows up or if we just learn how to pretend'.

Ticket prices as follows: Adult (or wannabe) - $20.
Concession - $17. Group (6 or more) - $15.
Opening night (September 23rd) - $10.

The show will run from 23 - 28th of September at Club Voltaire. Click here to book now.
