14 Dec 5:40pm | Constantly Screaming
HAVE YOU EVER SCREAMED AT A BEAUTIFUL SUNRISE? HAVE YOU EVER SCREECHED AT A BUDDING FLOWER? HAVE YOU EVER CURSED LOUDLY AT THE SIGHT OF A NEW BORN BUB? IS YOUR INTERNAL SCREAM SOMETIMES LOUDER THAN YOUR IRL SCREAM? DO YOU FIND YOURSELF INTERNALLY SCREAMING WHEN MEN CALL YOU “darlin?” DOES YOUR BRAIN HIT THE SAME NOTE AS WHITNEY (RIP) WHEN YOU GET ASKED “How queer are you though? 50/50?” DOES YOUR INTERNAL MONOLOGUE SOUND LIKE THE LEAD SINGERS FROM THE DARKNESS WHEN YOU WALK PAST A CHARITY MUGGER AND THEY SAY “hello there!” AND YOU JUST KEEP LOOKING AT YOUR PHONE AND FEEL LIKE AN ASS BUT AT LEAST YOU DIDN’T REJECT THEM VERBALLY?!
LIFE IS WEIRD AND WONDERFUL AND ALSO SOMETIMES SH!T AND CONFUSING! LET’S SCREAM ABOUT IT!
Stand up comedians Frankie McNair and Maddy Weeks are coming from your Nations Capital to verbalise their internal screams during this hour of stand up comedy written entirely in caps lock.
Frankie McNair blurs the lines between stand-up, physical comedy, and a Liza Minnelli fever dream. She’s been screaming on stage since 2017 and in 2018 she performed to sell out crowds at MICF as part of “ACT Like A Lady”, sold out her headliner show at Polit Bar, and was a Raw Comedy State Finalist. She’s also known for being half of comedy duo Sweaty Pits, who’s debut show “Pity Party” was nominated for “Best Comedy” at the 2018 Melbourne Fringe Festival and also won the 2018 Sydney Fringe Festival “New Zealand Tour Ready Award”. She has recently performed at the Canberra Comedy festival.
Her mum frequently asks her if she needs money.
Maddy Weeks is a Canberra-based comedian, born and bred in the Big Merino’s shadow. She was a praised scholar in high school- achieving a satisfactory ATAR and entrance into a prestigious university- setting her up for a financially stable
future. With everything going so well, she decided to drop out of uni and write jokes instead of essays. Maddy Weeks has now been screaming on stage for three years! She has performed in sold out shows at the Canberra and Melbourne comedy festivals as a member of comedy troupe ACT Like a Lady and was a 2018 Raw State Finalist. She’s done spots all around the country, sharing the stage with many legends of Australian Comedy. Described as being “relatable yet incredibly confusing” and dubbed as “everybody’s hype man” her high-energy performances are sure to leave you uplifted, laughing, and maybe just a little bit concerned.
