Hosted by the Brass Money, Best Show Award and Funny Women Award nominee, Lou Conran is back with her uniquely hilarious and raw show, Maybe Baby.
I've been lucky enough to check out a range of shows at Fringe World 2020, but this show has by far been my favourite. It is 100% the most uniquely funny show that I've been to.
For those who need a quick rundown of what you can expect from Maybe Baby, my overall snapshot is that it is comedy gold, in that there are relatable, real jokes about sexuality and the many mishaps that can come with being a single woman dating questionable men. Lou's tales of sexual blunders will have you in fits, but the brilliance of this show is the combination of Lou's comedic skill and storytelling ability, that brings with it a strong thread of real tenderness and raw emotion.
Lou shares the story of how five months into her unexpected pregnancy, she lost her daughter. You mightn't think you'll have many laughs in a show that at its core revolves around infant loss, but Lou's approach to storytelling is captivating, moving and downright hilarious. She highlights how even in the worst of times, life continues to be its weird self, and you really can find humour even in the darkest of days.
You can expect to cackle like you haven't in a long time, be blown away by the true artistry of Lou's comedic and storytelling ability, and walk away feeling like you've gotten a truly unique Fringe World experience.
Tickets for the show range in cost from $20 to $25, and please be mindful that the Red Room at the Brass Monkey can be a bit warm, so don't worry about bringing a jacket (and maybe opt for a handheld fan!).
Maybe Baby is running until the 16th of February, so get in quick to grab your tickets, I can guarantee you won't regret it!
