One woman, one guitar, one night of pure entertainment

I would like to start by saying, hurry along and buy tickets to multi-award-winning Canadian comedian Shirley Gnome's last two shows (of 3 in total) in Melbourne.

You only have Saturday and Sunday (16th and 17th April 2016) evening at 5.30pm on each night at The Butterfly Club - 5 Carson Place (off Little Collins Street), Melbourne.

Tickets are Full $32; Concession $28; Members $26; Group (6plus) $25 and you can get them right HERE.

Make sure you're on time as you do not want to miss the beginning of this musical comedy. For me, the very first song of glitter in unusual places was the 'hit' of the night. It had us all in rolls of laughter, about the reality of where glitter could actually take refuge.

An hour long of profanities in context of course, went down as smooth as honey, and words otherwise offensive, coupled with a whole lot of wit, facial expressions and body language, just left you wondering what was going to come out of her 'Kazoo' next.

Experience tales of love and sex in song, told in a very real way. Not for the faint-hearted or the underaged, this is what the comedy festival is all about. So take a ride on the wild side of this rich, raunchy and riotous show. You'll never listen to (singer-songwriter) Adele the same way ever again.

There's even a bunch of souvenirs you can pick up on the night, ranging from CDs to Hoo Hoo Kazoos and everything in between.
