Stuff I Forgot to Tell My Daughter
MICHELE A'COURT IN
STUFF I FORGOT
TO TELL MY DAUGHTER
“MUM, HOW CAN I POSSIBLY THAW BREAD WITHOUT ELECTRICITY?”
20 years ago Michele had one of those things. You know. A daughter. Last year, Holly moved out of home, got a job and went flatting.
Since then it has become apparent to Michele that there are some gaps (ok, chasms) in Holly’s general knowledge. A few bits of stuff that she forgot to tell her along the way. All sorts of things really; from how to store ginger, how to thaw bread without electricity to explaining what feminism is. Whoops.
Without the child at home needing clean clothes, hot meals and a taxi service, Michele has had some time to think about these things. The result is this - some lessons for Holly, and Michele’s first solo show in seven years.
Michele A’Court, voted Female Comedian of the Decade 2010 by the NZ Comedy Guild, is a vital part of the New Zealand comedy scene. Her last show, “40 Odd Years”, saw her nominated for the prestigious Fred Award in 2006 but, with all her commitments, it has taken this long to produce the next show.
A regular on Radio New Zealand National’s The Panel and Nine-to-Noon, and TV3’s topical comedy show 7 Days, Michele’s opinions and humour are highly sought after. She also has a number of regular writing commitments including a weekly column in The Christchurch Press and regular contributions to Next magazine. Michele remains a current and relevant commentator on the way we are and just how funny the whole situation is.
There is a wide appeal for this show. For people who have had children, those who might have children, and those who have been children, it is a must see show in this year’s NZ International Comedy Festival. Michele is such an endearing performer who draws the audience in and leaves them beaming.
