The thing about FIRSTWORLDWHITEGIRLS is, as Tiffany and Madison, point out in the first five minutes of the show – this is IRL. For any of you out there not familiar with this speak, it is short for "In Real Life".
And lets face it we all have a Tiffany and Madison friend or acquaintance out there who in real life is enacting all the two women do on stage.
The result- A truly hilarious, witty, current and cringing hour-long show with them telling us in song and in prose what the reality of white girl privilege is all about. We have seen it and indeed some of us have lived it. Now it is time to laugh heartily at it and use it as a bloody good excuse to get our feet more planted on the ground.
We can indulge a little more though. These two women, whose real names are Judith Hainsworth and Meggan Hickey have taken a subject matter, which is all around us, and have turned it on its head to serve it up to us in a way that is engaging and relatable.
They have taken songs from well-known artists and changed the lyrics, they have devised poems and words which leave us laughing out loud, they have managed to be slightly outrageous, a little shocking and cruel in equal measure and good comedy is all about placing audiences on the edge of these feelings. They have nailed it.
Reviews from around the world suggest that this is not a show which is only relatable to a Brisbane audience but is worldwide and world worthy. They have performed to full houses at the Adelaide Fringe and the Melbourne Comedy Festival and now we are lucky to have them at the Brisbane Comedy Festival.
Come and enjoy Tiffany, our natural blonde "living her best life" albeit "without her large intestine because a small one is good enough right?". Listen to Madison telling us how to find our "Animal Spirit" and saying her mantras while activating her almonds and her charcoal. Hear Tiffany telling us her Ancestry DNA results and how she finds out she is a little bit Indian which leads her to her ashram and her discoveries there all over a period of four days. Tiffany is also Prince Harry's ex so Meghan Markle cops a lot in the show.
Madison is looking for love and finding it making Ikea sofas. They are Lady preneurs and lady preachers. They are looking for love. They don't hesitate to find ways to make themselves better be it labiaplasty or botox injections. Yes, everyone, these things happen and they are real.
They are better than us, me or you, because they are smug, privileged and white. They don't just drink their green smoothies they drink the algae straight from the pond!
They declutter,(don't mention Marie Kondo) endure the big C,( and this is not Chlamydia) write books about healing and finding themselves. Their mantra tells Craig L where not to put his fingers!
The show is spirited and naughty and you will laugh out loud. More importantly, however it will also allow you to enter that room knowing that life is for living in the moment – this is the moment for FIRSTWORLDWHITEGIRLS – so go and enjoy it.
