Love pinot noir and elasticised waists? Struggling to match your lipstick to your prolapse? Wondering why Dutch ovens are ‘inclusive’? Then join this rising star from regional NSW for the Fringe premiere of her debut show.
Sure, ticking the ‘45-54 years old’ box has its perks, like flash rehab and zero interest from handsy harassers. But divorce and homelessness loom large unless this slacker grandma cancels her membership to Australia’s fastest growing club: Alcoholic women over 50.
Kelly Mac cut her comedy chops on brekkie radio in Coffs Harbour. In her first year she was nominated for the Australian Commercial Radio Award for Best Newcomer (she lost) and Best On-air Team (she won, with a little help from her co-host).
She entered stand-up in 2020, producing in 2021, and the office of the cheapest therapist she could find in 2022. She’s performed in the Melbourne and Adelaide Fringe Festivals and the Melbourne International Comedy Festival as part of the Take 3 comedy troupe.
With the kids full-grown and relapse a chardy away, Kel’s parenting advice is, “devon and white bread produce winners” and “never join the P & C.”
