Queen Anne of Comedy

Brunswick Picture House | Friday 18 Jan 9pm & Saturday 19 Jan 7pm | $30-35

Anne Edmonds is one of Australia’s most exciting standup, character, and banjo-playing comedians. Since bursting onto the scene in 2010 she has brought her exquisitely incisive characters, songs, and worldview to clubs and comedy festivals around Australia and all over the world. After a sold-out season and a prestigious peer award win at the 2015 Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Anne took her show You Know What I’m Like to London’s Soho Theatre in January 2016. She toured her 2016 Barry-nominated show That’s Eddotainment around Australia, stole the show in ABC TV’s Fancy Boy, and won the 2016 MICF Director’s Choice Award with the True Australian Patriots. No Offence, None Taken saw her nominated again for the Barry Award in 2017, and she followed it up with a successful run at the Edinburgh Fringe and a return to London’s Soho Theatre. Anne is also a familiar face on Aussie TV with appearances on The Project, Have you Been Paying Attention? and Hughesy We Have a Problem. Anne is coming to the Brunswick Picture House to premiere her new one-hour festival show before she hits the festival circuit. We found out a little bit more about what makes Anne tick… 

Every morning when I get up… I promise myself I’m not going on social media and five minutes later I’m scrolling away.

If Donald Trump and I were locked in an elevator… I would get back firmly against the wall and try to defend my front. 

One of my worst habits… is sucking my thumb! I can’t stop even though I’m an adult. 

Something most people don’t know about me is… I suck my thumb. But the game is now up.

My mother always told me… Don’t have children! Bit mean really.

When I get drunk I have a habit of… karaoke! 

When it comes to undies I prefer the ones… that don’t ride up! I am amazed by all the girls with their bathers up their bums at the beach here. Doesn’t it hurt? Ouchies.

People who shit me most are those who… walk slowly or are racist. 

My perfect Sunday includes… reading my book, eating whatever I want, and maybe start drinking gin at 3pm instead of 5pm.

When I cook… I make a lot of mess and get angry and want it to end.

When I was a kid I thought… you could sit on clouds, like a spongy seat.

My parents were disappointed… Yes, they were. Oh well. 

Being a comedian is a bit like… Being the class clown for your whole life. 

When you come to my show… you’ll laugh for an hour and walk away feeling good because you have your life so much more together then me.
