Mad about the boy lets hear it for Stephanie Laing
Let's hear it for the boy? No, let's hear it for Stephanie Laing! There is no excuse not to see Stephanie for yourself. She is performing as part of the Melbourne International Comedy Festival at Tasma Terrace, which is only a four-minute walk from Parliament Station.

Box office to the stars
 


We chose a truly balmy night to watch our first show this year at the Comedy Festival and everything about the night made for an entertaining time. The venue itself holds a rich history and the room Stephanie was performing in was quite intimate with room for only thirty people. While this perhaps wouldn't work for some comedians, it leant itself perfectly to Stephanie's tales of her dating life so far. She engaged the audience by involving them in her situations and I believe this worked so much better in a smaller more personal area.

I won't give too much away as I'm sure she is a far better storyteller than I am, I mean, after all, it is her life but what I loved about her delivery is that it wasn't just one-liners and cheap done and dusted jokes, but rather a journey of stories around her dating life. From quinoa to how you cut sandwiches, to things that would definitely make your mother blush, her routine moved effortlessly from the beginning to the end, which finished with a twist that made the whole room laugh.

Let's hear it for the boy, and definitely let's hear it for Stephanie Laing. A great night's entertainment but beware it's definitely adult's only and not for the faint-hearted. There are also some trigger issues discussed but if you like a good laugh, then you'll love Stephanie and her weird and wacky sense of humour.
