20 years ago Michele had one of those things. You know. A
daughter. Last year, Holly moved out of home, got a job and went
Since then it has become apparent to Michele that there are some
gaps (ok, chasms) in Holly's general knowledge. A few bits of stuff
that she forgot to tell her. All sorts of things really - from how
to store ginger, how to thaw bread without electricity, to
explaining what feminism is. Whoops.
Without the child at home needing clean clothes, hot meals and a
taxi service, Michele has had some time to think about these
things. The result is this - some lessons for Holly, and Michele's
first solo show in seven years.
Michele A'Court, voted Female Comedian of the Decade 2010 by the
NZ Comedy Guild, is a vital part of the New Zealand comedy scene.
Her last show, "40 Odd Years", saw her nominated for the
prestigious Fred Award in 2006 but, with all her commitments, it
has taken this long to produce the next show.
There is a wide appeal for this show. For people who have had
children, those who might have children, and those who have been
children, it is a must see show in the SCIRT WORLD BUSKERS
FESTIVAL. Michele is such an endearing performer who draws the
audience in and leaves them beaming.
