Ready to dive into all the fail!

You know when you're adulting your hardest and still seem to fail all over the place? Well, this is the show for you! Comedian Jasmine Fairbairn will make you feel better about every life choice you've ever made in her newest show Swimming the Seas of Failure 2 - now even fail-ier!

Her show Swimming the Seas of Failure sold out in Canada and Brisbane in 2017, so this is her latest instalment in her life of total failure.

'The only thing I seem to be successful at is failing, so I'm 'leaning in' to it' says Fairbairn, who won 10 awards for her first play Undertow in 2018, which doesn't seem very on brand. 'That's an island in the ocean of failure I've been riding these last couple of years, from parenthood to divorce the true awards I should have won is how spectacularly I have failed at life'.

Fairbairn's way of laughing at her own failures is what makes her so successful; nothing is off-limits. She pulls no punches with herself and that's what's so relatable, she's that inner voice in your head making fun of all that you don't want to think about. 'If you don't laugh, you'll never leave the floor of the closet you're crying on'
