A well-rounded revue boasting a firm comedy base and a soft centre, this variety show is positively stacked with local talent.
Frequent fringers Kim Zeglinski, Celeste Sansregret and Alison Field (Sensible Footwear), with standup comic Heather Witherden and burlesque queen Miss La Muse, are amusing, provocative, touching and titillating.
Field offers breast feeding as a conflict solution — "could you just stop your moaning and suck on this?" And her mates get a few things off their chests — literally, in one case — in monologues on size, shape and harnessing woes.
There’s no padding required, but the ladies tuck in a handful of sight gags, a moment of poignance with a tassel-twirling display courtesy of Miss La Muse.
Destined to be a breast of fest.
