Dream. Come . True. I am beyond stoked to announce I'll be filming my brand new TV stand up special at the Sydney Opera House. If you'd like to come along, be part of the audience and potentially be featured laughing (I hope) on camera then you can grab tickets by heading to the Opera House or Just For Laughs Australia website. My mum is coming and we're both very excited!
You know how people post photos of them casually not looking at the camera? This is one of those photos. But in reality this is one of about 482 photos which I art directed for about 15 minutes screaming things like No! Get up higher fuckwit! and show me what you've got so far... nope delete them all and start again and I'm just gonna put the sunnies on. Should I put the sunnies on? I think the sunnies work. They work yeah? I know it's night but they won't know that on Instagram. Anywho here I am hanging out super casually and not staged at all at @crownresorts for my birthday on the weekend.
Over here on the set of Sisters we are pretty passionate about marriage equality. So @magda_szubanski and I asked our colleagues to #STANDUPANDSAYYES in support of marriage equality in Australia!
It's @jackstrattonsmith's birthday today! Here's to 24 years of being a real eye sore. I always see drag queens ask their fans to flood each other's Instagram feeds with different emojis. It confuses me and I don't know what it means but I want to do the same thing. So could you just go flood his Instagram feed with comments about how gorgeous I am? Or happy birthday messages. Either is fine by me. If you were wondering my drag name is Sara Tonin. She never rocks up to work on a Sunday and she is a complete nightmare on Wednesday's.
Was beyond delighted to take my partner in crime @janellekoenig to the Helpmann Awards as my date last night. Janelle writes all my shows with me as well as pretty much helping make every other major decision in my life. I would not be where I am today without her. Which is Sydney. She helped arrange the flights. Jokes like that are why I didn't win 'Best Comedy' last night but I was truly stoked to be nominated. And stoked to be decked out in this head to toe @calibreaustralia number. We are now off to eat our body weight in food. x
A couple of creepy uncles at the Little Mix concert. Dancing in our seats because the stupid 6 year old behind us is too short according to her mother.
Had the best week in Margaret River with my parents. We drank and ate our body weight in wine and cheese. It truly couldn't be better timing that I begin Dry July tomorrow. I already hate myself and everybody I come into contact with. I feel like I'm awaiting the executioner. A few years ago I was an ambassador for Dry July and I tell you what - it was the wettest fucking July on record. Not sure if I'm meant to admit that publicly? The money still went to charity. I think. Heading out tonight for a few drinks so hopefully a bit of alcohol poisoning will tie me over to the end of the month.
Love it when I get to visit the wife at work. Welcome back to Australia @thejinkx.
In comedy, the technical term for performing a LOT of shows is called a fucking shit tonne. Sooo... not to hit you with too much industry lingo... but I have performed a fucking shit tonne of shows on my POSER tour. And it's been bloody tip top (not industry lingo but just a bit of fun). So what better way to close the tour than in my home town of Perth this weekend!! In tribute here is a photo of me as my favorite Real Housewife and barrister Gina Rinehart holding the West Australian native bird... the quokka. So if you'd like to come along to my final shows I am playing the Astor Theatre this Friday (sold out lol), Saturday and Sunday. You can grab tickets from my website or livenation.com.au. Whichever tickles your pickle. See you there Perth!!l
