Melbourne International Comedy Festival
Malthouse Theatre, Southbank

See Lauren Edwards' new show Brace Yourself at the Malthouse Theatre in Melbourne. Lauren gazes down the barrel of turning 40, with no kids, idiopathic scoliosis, and a cost of living housing crisis. Sound familiar?

Sporting a pink and red Margarita Bailie shirt and pants and big white Crocs, Lauren gives us a glimpse into her past life through the lens of nostalgia, from her life as a tuckshop thief to the perils of wearing a back brace and teenage dating, lactose intolerance, competing with newborn grandkids and her fear of MILFs. Sounds bleak right?

Lauren ponders life's great questions. When is too many scented candles a problem? What is the ylang-ylang conspiracy? When is it time to stop pleasing people?

Directed by Claire Hooper this is a tight, funny show with nostalgic trips down memory lane from the dreaded teenage years to mid-life eviction.

Despite her diagnosis, Lauren smashes out Lady Marmalade dance moves and delivers her routine 'standing-up' for 55 minutes. Lauren is a triple threat - vibrant, endearing, and hilarious refusing to succumb to the threat of ageism and invisibility.

Life begins at 40, so head out and see Lauren and brace yourself for lots of laughs at the 2024 Melbourne International Comedy Festival.
