^^

When: Saturday 5th October
Where:
State Theatre

US Comedian, Author and Activist CHELSEA HANDLER returns to Australia in October for the first time since her 2014 live tour. LIFE WILL BE THE DEATH OF ME: CHELSEA HANDLER’S STAND-UP COMEDY TOUR, taking the same name as her just-released #1 NY TIMES BEST SELLING sixth book, Life Will Be The Death Of Me, will see the disarmingly honest and riotously funny Handler, head to Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne from October 4. Fresh from her 27-date tour in the US, this brand-new stand up show is classic Chelsea Handler. The brash candour and self-deprecating humour that fuelled her previous bestselling essays collections and wildly successful TV shows is here in spades. Tickets for all shows go on sale at 11am, Wednesday June 19. Regarded as one of the most successful figures in entertainment today, Chelsea Handler’s talk shows, best-selling books and stand-up comedy have attracted millions of fans worldwide. After a successful seven-year run as the host of E!’s top-rated Chelsea Lately, Handler launched an all-new talk show for Netflix in 2016. Chelsea was the first of its kind for the global on-demand generation and tackled today’s tough issues with the same acerbic wit and fearless curiosity fans know and love. The 120 eps are still available on Netflix, as is her documentary series Chelsea Does. Handler has continued her partnership with Netflix, producing a feature-length documentary focusing on the notion of white privilege to be released later this year. Handler also launched her first podcast this year - also called Life Will Be The Death Of Me - teaming up with iHeartRadio for the weekly show which regularly holds the #1 spot. Handler left her Netflix show at the end of 2017 to focus on her work as an activist by joining forces with EMILY’s List to help elect more women to public office, register people to vote and campaign for candidates who are fighting for women’s rights. In addition, she has partnered with the Karam Foundation, a non-profit organisation whose mission is to build a better future for Syria by developing innovative education programs for refugee youth, distributing smart aid to families and funding sustainable development projects initiated by Syrians for Syrians. Handler, who has been honoured by TIME magazine as one of it’s annual “TIME 100”, now has six best-selling books including My Horizontal Life (2005), Are You There, Vodka? It’s Me, Chelsea (2008), Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang (2010), Lies That Chelsea Handler Told Me (2011), and 2014’s Uganda Be Kidding Me, and now Life Will Be The Death Of Me. Don’t miss the irrepressibly candid Chelsea Handler live and on-stage this October.

Hans: Like A German

^^

When: Wednesday 4th December - Friday 6th December
Where:
Eternity Playhouse, 39 Burton Street, Darlinghurst
Time: 7pm & 8pm
Cost: $44 - $49

International superstar, sex symbol, accordionist and Berlin boy-wonder, Hans, will be bringing his Like A German tour to the Eternity Playhouse from December 4th to 6th. Backed by a live band, Hans: Like A German is an accordion-pumping, foot-stomping, glittering blitzkrieg of cabaret. Audiences will be slapping their thighs so hard they’ll think it’s Oktoberfest as Hans dishes the dirt on his triumphant turn on TV’s America’s Got Talent where he made it all the way to the finals. Hans: Like A German has been a major hit at the recent Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Adelaide Fringe Festival and Melbourne Comedy Festival, garnering multiple five star reviews and sold out performances. Boozier than Oktoberwest, more drive than a Volkswagen and with more sausage than a bratwurst convention, Hans is Germany’s proudest export. With his own fabulous brand of critically acclaimed cabaret, Hans has been thrilling audiences around the globe for over a decade and has performed for everyone from Prime Ministers to Princesses. Hans’ most recent cabaret productions, Viva Hans Vegas (2016), Mein Camp (2017) and If You Don’t Love Me…Leave! (2018), have all been praised by audiences and critics alike including being named Best Cabaret at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival by UK’s The Sun newspaper, and winning Best Cabaret awards at both the Adelaide and Perth Fringe Festivals. In addition, Hans was named ‘Pick of the Fringe’ at the Adelaide Fringe awards in 2018.
