NO HAT, NO PLAY! THE CABARET - Bondi Festival arrow-leftarrow-rightmagnifying-glassshare-iconshopping-cart-iconstar-iconuser-icon

“Mel knocked us over with her outrageous satirical cover of Sia’s Chandelier at EUROWISION in 2019. When we heard she was making a cabaret with TikTok superstar Sam Andrew, we were in.” – Rachel Chant, Festival Director

Sydney Premiere

Wipe down your recorder, kick the tanbark out of your shoes and throw that Megasaurus scrapbook to the wind. It’s time to listen up jerks, cos IT’S YOUR OWN LUNCHTIME YOU’RE WASTING!

Join TikTok star and Green Room award-winner Samantha Andrew (Baby Bi Bi Bi) and musical comedian Mel O’Brien (Tinder Tales, Voldemort & the Teenage Hogwarts Musical Parody) for this jam-packed, Glad Wrapped® cabaret adventure, hitting Sydney’s shores after its acclaimed sold-out season at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival.

Featuring an all original soundtrack, this 55 minute all-singing, all-dancing, all-gluesticking extravaganza is a soft dodgeball to the head. But in a good way. So pick a bus buddy, grab your EpiPen, cross your heart, hope to die and stick a Sunnyboy in your eye! This is Year 6.
