Jordan Barr's HOW TO BE SEXY Comes to Melbourne's Comedy Festival
In this one-woman variety show - Jordan Barr is the girl you bonded with once in a dirty nightclub bathroom. You know her. She loved your statement glitter sneakers. She told you to chase those dreams. She gave you the details of that family member your mum has been searching for since 1986. She wants you to feel important and empowered - but is just taking a little time figuring out how to do that.
Jordan used her training from 'The Second City' in Chicago to develop a
sketch show during the Harvey Weinstein scandal.
'The show was already in the latter stages of development when women started publicly accusing Weinstein of sexual assault. I was incredibly empowered by their bravery. Those women inspired me to use humour as a weapon, rather than a defence mechanism. It's time we talked about the importance of women owning their sensuality - rather than being sexualised by a patriarchal gaze.'
Using dark humour and satirical writing she aims to take your emotions on a ride...
leaving no man unscathed. A fun gal's night out or a rude awakening for the old footy
boys 'annual catch up'.
