14 Dec 8:30pm | Sweaty Pits – Pity Party
Two friends decide to follow their dream of creating an amazing sketch show! But among the several costume changes, the squirting citrus, the ’80s aerobics, and the magic mike strip routines…they realise their dream might be a little out of reach. It’s comedy, it’s burlesque, it’s slap stick, it’s heartfelt…it’s harder than they thought. A sketch show for those who question what they are doing with their lives and then do it anyway.
Sweaty Pits were nominated for “Best Comedy” at the 2018 Melbourne Fringe Festival and won the “New Zealand Tour Ready Award” at the 2018 Sydney Fringe Festival.
Frankie McNair and Miriam Slater wrote their first sketch together in 2016, after which they decided to combine their true loves (comedy and each other) and give birth to the sketch comedy duo “Sweaty Pits”. They aim to make change by screaming about the issues they care about with a positive, absurdist, and energetic energy and hope to leave the audience with a belly full of laughs as well as a message.
