Thalia Joan: That’ll Do – The Glamour of Giving up

MICF2024 Thalia Joan reviewAs Thalia Joan greets her audience, she informs us that anything can happen, as she has been up since 3.30am, indignantly woken up by what she calls ‘the crack choir’ – a group of people on a noisy bender, whose conversations resembled a variety of bird calls?

The audience needn’t be worried! In just under an hour, the Sydney-based comedian delivers a whip-smart performance of observational storytelling peppered with witty insights from a millennial perspective.

Instantly likeable and fun, Thalia Joan covers much ground with a refreshingly conversational tone, pivoting with ease through a complementary mix of self-deprecating and self-assured humour.

Topics explored include intergenerational difference, relationships with family and ex-partners, workplace issues, and the outcomes of interacting with social media algorithms after taking an online quiz.

The evening rounds out with an amusing musical rendition of text messages she sent to a date following their no-show, demonstrating her performance skills are wide-ranging and on-point.

You’ll have one more chance to catch Thalia Joan at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival on Sunday 14 April, before she performs at the quirky Knox Street Bar (18 – 20 April) and the Brunswick Picture House (3 May).
