Myra DuBois: Dead Funny


Myra is dead; long live Myra! Realising that she stands to miss out on the most attention she’ll ever receive in one sitting, Myra DuBois brings forward her own funeral to make sure people get it right!

Myra DuBois presents an irreverently sardonic side-eye at death, dying and the theatrics of grief. With songs by Richard Thomas (Jerry Springer the Opera) all wrapped up in Myra’s trademark acerbic wit, Dead Funny promises to be a show so funny you’ll R.I.Pee your pants.

Unpredictable, intelligent character comedy, the self-declared siren of South Yorkshire works the room, sparing no-one her sharp tongue, and yet somehow keeping everybody affectionately on-side. Having sold out shows at the Edinburgh Festival, Underbelly Southbank Festival and Soho Theatre, and being described as “bust a gut funny” by Graham Norton, don’t miss your chance to catch her Australian debut.

The family have requested that a splash of leopard-print is worn in memory of Myra DuBois.
