NICA Pescado

NICA’s Pescado: a circus-cabaret fusion

Picture yourself slowly walking from the sunny shores of Venice Beach and descending slowly beneath the breaking waves, into the world where scuba divers DJ and the circus ringmaster oddly resembles a tubby bearded walrus.  This and other fishy characters,…

St. Jerome’s Rooftop Glamp

We love it when a group of  like-minded people come together and create something special. With St. Jerome’s Rooftop Hotel Melbourne has gained (temporarily) a gorgeous, green urban landscape in an unused space on one of Melbourne’s most iconic buildings. St. Jerome, The…

Comedy Fest Review: Lady Sings It Better

  A night at the Cabaret with four babes up on stage in matching outfits… except those outfits bear a mighty resemblance to the Wiggly rock stars of your youth. Lady definitely sings it better: if you’ve ever felt the…

Comedy Fest Review: A Bunch of Pirates

“I’m going to a transdimensional pirate comedy,” I told people at the Little Creatures/Little Veggie Patch Pop-Up last night. Yes indeed, the title alone of the Comedy Fest show ‘A Bunch of Pirates: A Transdimensional Adventure‘ got me excited. The plot…

Comedy Fest Review: Jude Perl

Jude Perl is a delight. Her Comedy Fest show, ‘Is it Just Me?‘ is a solid hour of why-isn’t-this-on-the-radio songs mixed with lighthearted standup. The basement of The Butterfly Club (who knew there was a basement?) was sold out the…
