High Society and Other F*ckups

She’s back, and bawdier than ever! In a hilarious whirlwind of wicked charisma and anecdotal spectacle, critically acclaimed avant-showgirl, Miss Friby, will present a wild array of cabaret, burlesque and vaudeville acts.
Sharp wit, satirical bite and absurdist performance is on the menu as Miss Friby, dissects humanity and its graceless empire. This ‘strange bid to justify every mother f*cking sh*tty thing that ever bloody happened’ will be oddly refreshing and downright bizarre. See yourself in satire, I dare you.
Green Room Award nominee, Fields Award Finalist and even Australia’s Got Talent Finalist, Miss Friby, is a one woman whirlwind that, year after year, bends the minds of her beloved audiences with wild and irreverent shows!
Bent humour, sequinned social commentary and jazz hands will be on the menu, in a wild reflective ride for the cabaret aficionados! Expect high flying movement, exquisite aesthetics and hilarity like never before – this is going to be one wild ride folks!
