Wickedly Brilliant, Bizarre Suspense And Nervous Laughter
This is the best ever fully interactive comedy show juxtaposed with sex, sin and insanity! This very funny 'no hold barred' show proves that no dirty subject is too controversial to tackle at a comedy festival.

Private Eye Kapinski


Private eye Butt Kapinski (with her deer in the light eyes and hilarious wascully wabbit speech impediment) is all the way from the USA to make her MICF debut. Butt invites you to co-star in a film noir murder mystery. This is improvisation like no other. It is way beyond audience participation you may have come to expect at the MICF; this is total audience participation. Everyone gets involved - no 'ifs or buts'. Each person is designated a character profile which they must enact and develop for the story.

The show will take you into the places you have never been. It's not for the shy or the faint-hearted! This was engaging from the get go. The audience started laughing out loud within minutes. Like contractions, these became more frequent and intense as the show progressed.

Expect the unexpected from this clever comedian who 'qweerly' enjoys the challenge of engaging, challenging and involving the audience in creating a storyline for the open minded. This must not be an easy task because the audience's responses could take the story in any direction.

Picture this: It's dark, very dark tonight. You are strolling down the red light district; you come across some very shady people and the odd murder. What would you do or say? It matters a lot, especially to the show. To my surprise there are many volunteers for the dubious roles that unfold.

The audience is spellbound


Butt Kapinski weaves her magic as she weaves madly throughout the audience to the tune of an audience member's music created only with his voice and a mic. Butt's facial expressions accentuated by the bright white spotlight and her sharp, dramatic hand and body movements are hypnotising. It's impossible not to be mesmerised by her creativity. Before you know it, the show is over but not before a very revealing ending.

From the director and co-writer of RED BASTARD - the internationally acclaimed buffoon show - Butt Kapinski (award-winning comic) has been taking North America by storm.

Some audience member's comments:

'It was fantastic. I loved the surprise ending. I've booked in for her workshops. I'd love to be like her.'

'I think Australian audiences are a bit shy but it came together remarkably well. She was great.'

'I loved the show. She was very funny.'

'This is unlike anything I have ever seen. She is the master of getting the audience involved. You never know what's going to happen next.'

Remember the name - she is definitely not JUST any woman or indeed any old comedian. Butt Kapinski (dah, dah, dah, dah!) THIS IS DEFINITELY AN ADULTS ONLY SHOW. No buts… get your but into see this show.



All shows are wheelchair accessible.
