The Isaac Theatre Royal are thrilled to be hosting Australian comedy trio Aunty Donna and ‘The Magical Dead Cat Tour’ on Monday 12th December!
Following their critically acclaimed 2020 Netflix series, Australia’s favourite absurdist sketch group, Aunty Donna, will tour their first live theatre show in more than three years!
Aunty Donna exploded onto the Melbourne comedy scene in 2012 with their unique brand of surreal, fast paced, alternative sketch. Since then, their loud and energetic shows have toured around the globe multiple times, won an accolade of awards and amassed a worldwide fanbase including more than 453,000 subscribers and 84 million views on YouTube.
It’s been a big year for the trio who in 2020, partnered with Netflix for the worldwide release of Aunty Donna’s Big Ol’ House of Fun, executive produced by The Office’s Ed Helms and Between Two Ferns’ Scott Aukerman. The series received praise from fans across the globe including Neil Patrick Harris and RuPaul.
Aunty Donna’s loud and energetic live shows have taken them around the world multiple times. They sold out their Australian and New Zealand Comedy Festivals seasons from 2016 to 2018 before hitting Edinburgh, London, Montreal & Hong Kong. They have toured North America three times performing to sold out crowds in Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco & Austin.
Dear Human Beings,
Hello, I am a Magical Dead Cat, the titular Magical Dead Cat from the very title of this very show.
I write to you today because I have discovered the most wondrous sketch show on the popular streaming service Netflix – Aunty Donna’s Big Ol’ House of Fun. I was so impressed with said show that I issued Aunty Donna this challenge: entertain me with a 2 hour live show, one that features all new sketches, but also a few fan favourites. It MUST include a short interval, and based on availability / budget, possibly an opening act. If Aunty Donna succeeds in pleasing me with a rip-roarin’ show, I have promised to surprise them with a special, web slinging, mystery guest!
Come, sweet humans, and see if Broden, Zach and Mark are up for the task!
With loving grace,
The Magical Dead Cat.
