The last time Jude and Scotty teamed up and hit the road it was 2017 – a simpler time. Their critically acclaimed, smash-hit show Disappointments, sold more than 70,000 tickets nationally and they won the 2017 Melbourne Comedy Festival’s People’s Choice Award.
Now, the whole country is wondering, how did they cope with a global pandemic and the endless lockdowns of the last two years?
Well, it turns out they were in lockdown together dealing with the same big questions as everyone else: how many meals can I eat in one day? Do I have a drinking problem? (Specifically, if I go to the toilet in the middle of the night and on my way back to bed I stop and have a gin and tonic, does that mean my drinking problem has gotten worse? Or does it mean I’m living my best life?) Will I ever wear a bra again? Should I trim my goatee or go the full on beard?
Join Jude and Scotty for what could loosely be called a play – think Waiting for Godot meets Flying High – that is not only full of shameless gags but sees them confronting their greatest fear. Intrigued? Don’t be. Just buy a ticket.
“At last something to shave my face for! Can’t wait to embrace Scotty, some show business and our audience-not literally obviously that would be repulsive for everyone involved.” – Judith Lucy
“Judith has frozen shoulders, can’t use her arms. I have arthritic knees, can’t use my legs. I’m excited to be Jude’s arms. She’s thrilled to be my legs. We’re ecstatic to be back, together as one, on stage loving ourselves and our audiences sick.” – Denise Scott
