Eddie Perfect in Misanthropology

World Premiere


‘Perfect’s vision is an almost unimprovable mingling of satire and homage, cheek and deference, music and comedy.’ The Guardian


Director: Craig Ilott


Eddie Perfect, Helpmann Award-winning comedian, composer and performer (Network Ten’s Offspring, Shane Warne The Musical, Keating! The Musical) brings his latest darkly satirical musical work to a new late-night time slot in the salubrious surrounds of The Famous Spiegeltent.


Misanthropology is Perfect’s first new solo show since Drink Pepsi Bitch! And promises to be a kind of twisted social autopsy, examining the stranger cultural rituals we find ourselves performing. Only Eddie Perfect could persuade us of the cathartic nature of tearing the wings off Australia's most sacred blowflies and watching them crawl around the carpet.

WARNING: This show contains coarse language and adult themes.

Over 18s venue only
