Happy news Gold Coasters The Spiegeltent Gold Coast, presented by Strut & Fret Production House, is returning to Broadbeach with a vengeance throughout April and May and bringing with it a host of world-class shows that’ll knock your socks off.
In honour of great times and, in particular the ones the Spiegeltent regularly brings into our lives, here are six EPIC shows you simply must not miss when the big, beautiful tent rolls back into town.
Guys, this is the greatest. Comedy legends Dave Hughes, Peter Helliar, Paul McDermott and Matt Okine will be gracing our Gold Coast shores with what you know will be some of the most pants-wettingly hilarious times of your life. Hughesy is bringing his latest show Hairy, )(because he hasn’t had a haircut for 12 months) and you know he’ll manage to make that the funniest thing that’s ever happened plus the loveable Pete Helliar will bring his acclaimed Big Boy Pants show which is, of course, packed with abundant laughing opportunities. Oh and the King of The Bachelor, Osher Günsberg, is also coming along. So it’s probably a good idea to nab yourself some tickets quick smart.
Not to mention, Australian stand-up comedy royalty Tom Gleeson, Tommy Little, Lano & Woodley and John Safran are heading to the Coast right off the back of the Melbourne International Comedy Festival. Life is about to get a whole lot funnier friends.
Carlotta: Queen of the Cross
Bringing a hilarious (and brutal) collection of songs and stories from 50 years on and off stage, Carlotta’s show (of the Les Girls cabaret show that inspired Priscilla Queen of the Desert) is a must-see. With award-winning Micheal Griffiths on piano, it’s sure to be an entertaining evening. It’s on Sunday the 12th of May.
From the people who brought us Blanc de Blanc comes another masterpiece of epic proportions. Think cabaret, pyrotechnics, sword swallowing, aerial shenanigans and all set to a pumping soundtrack that’ll ensure LIMBO Unhinged is something you’ll never forget.
Katie Noonan and Elixir
ARIA Award winning singer and songwriter Katie Noonan and her jazz trio Elixir will also feature among the sprawling Spiegeltent program, for a magical night of music and poetry on Thursday 18th April.
Joan As Police Woman
Extraordinary New York recording artist, live concert performer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer, Joan As Police Woman (Joan Wasser). Performing live under the Spiegeltent Gold Coast on Wednesday 1st May, Joan As Police Woman will be accompanied by bandmates Parker Kindred, Eric Lane and Jacob Silver to kick-off the Australian tour of Wasser’s highly acclaimed new album Damned Devotion.
Also, the Spiegeltent will feature a festival bar and delicious local food to indulge in before and after each show. Which is obviously an extra good time.
Bring on May hey (and April but that doesn’t rhyme). Tickets on sale here.
