Fly with Double Denim to comedic euphoria as two dynamic characters hit the Frankston Arts Centre stage for the Melbourne International Comedy Festival Roadshow. The award-winning act combines the chemistry and flair of singer-comedian Michelle Brasier (Aunty Donna’s 1999) and dancer-comedian Laura Frew (choreographer, Fringe Wives Club). Notably in 2018 they won the Melbourne International Comedy Festival Director’s Choice Award and the Sydney International Comedy Festival Best Newcomer Award.

Michelle’s childhood in theatre presented creative barriers but, finding satisfaction within the “funny roles”, she soon developed her direction. Writing cabaret in between work, Michelle later found success within the comedy group Aunty Donna, whose tour for their sixth web series The Album mixed comedy with music. “I did lots of musicals as a kid but it’s less creative than you’d imagine, and you have to do the exact same thing every night,” she says. “Having the chance to combine music and comedy live was such a thrill.” 

In 2014, Michelle and Laura first worked together in a comedy troupe. By 2017, Double Denim had debuted and has since taken their awkward silliness to Berlin, New Zealand and Edinburgh to headline Late ’n’ Live at the Gilded Balloon. 

Their sketch, A Very Fancy Dinner Party, traverses the expectations of growing up set within the penultimate episode of a reality cooking show, where layered storylines explore everything from incontinence to Botox.

Almost 800,000 people will visit the comedy festival’s estimated 600 shows. Meanwhile, here in Frankston, the May 5 roadshow’s smorgasbord will feature Double Denim, Georgie Carroll, Lloyd Langford (UK) and Pat McCaffri, with MC Tom Cashman. 

Roadshow producer Kylie Mitchell says: “You can expect a lot of laughs, sketch, songs, nurse jokes, and of course some political humour.”

Tickets are available from the Frankston Arts Centre.
