Adelaide Fringe_Cath Styles Poster

Sometimes you don’t choose the life … the life chooses you!

In the wake of becoming unexpectedly single, and even more unexpectedly turning 50, this fierce, funny feminist finds out what it’s like when your favourite joke becomes a reality!

From break-ups to wake-ups (and make-up!), Accidental Cougar is a fresh and funny look at dating later, and ever after.

Two jobs, two cats, two countries and four kids… nurse, comic, mother and mad international traveller Cath Styles finds a keepsake in Africa which turns her life upside down and makes her ask the big question…

Can you live your own punchline?

Cath Styles in SHIFT at Melbourne International Comedy Festival 2016

 

We invite you to explore the craziness of a way of life where strange is normal, and normal is strange as Cath Styles presents her new show SHIFT at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival 2016.

Cath Styles has been a psychiatric nurse for 25 years, and a comedian for 10. Between the nights, evenings, weekends and holidays she’s worked in both jobs, she’s never had a weekend off. Ever! Shift is the show where both her worlds collide, and explores her on again, off again, love affair with her (paying!) job.

SHIFT poster MICF copy

No stranger to finding the funny in the dark and bizarre, the creator of festival favourite Darkness and Light blends stand-up and storytelling to tell touching, and twisted tales of her enduring 25 year fling with psych nursing.

The show will run from April 5 to 17 at The Downstairs Lounge at the Grand Mercure Hotel at 6.30pm. Details for the show can be found at the official MICF 2016 website: http://www.comedyfestival.com.au/2016/season/shows/shift-cath-styles

 

Darkness and Light at the Melbourne Fringe 2013

Melbourne, Victoria: Returning to the Melbourne Fringe Festival this year, Darkness and Light is a show for those who like their comedy a little on the real side.  Darkness and Light will run at The Tuxedo Cat from September 18 to 24 at 7pm each night, 6pm on Sundays.

darkness and light image

Darkness and Light brings together a fusion of funny people using a combination of stand-up, and stunning storytelling, to uncover the comedy gold that lurks beneath some of their darkest days. This is not about making light of a serious issue, it’s to demonstrate how darkness and light can co-exist in our lives and we can persevere.

Anyone who’s ever experienced bullying, mental illness, racism, coming out, grief, chronic illness, substance misuse, a broken heart, or just a really bad day will find they’re not the only ones, as some of the Fringe Festival’s top comics (and some very special international guests) share their very personal postcards from the edge.

Often confronting, but always funny, the Darkness and Light line-up changes every night, and features a stellar selection of comics, including:

Dave Thornton, Luke McGregor, Girls Uninterrupted, Ben Lomas, Laura Davis and Cat Commandr, and also our regular D & L story-joke masters Richard McKenzie, Bart Freebairn, Lori Bell, Nath Valvo, Simon Taylor, Morven Smith, Geraldine Hickey, Bryan Lynagh, Cy Fahey, Charles Barrington, and more!

*Check Melbourne Fringe website for nightly line-up.

We invite you step into the dark side, and see the light!

“Four stars!” The Herald Sun

“An incredible show and a great concept; each night different comedians get up and tell their true stories of when things maybe weren’t going so great for them. It results in some powerful storytelling and deeply touching moments, but also a chance to laugh at life’s twists and turns. Seeing this show was a wonderful experience and I highly recommend checking it out. Four stars.” The Funny Tonne

“Darkness and Light was an important and deeply satisfying evening. I came away feeling uplifted. I strongly suggest people go and support this show. It needs to be performed again and again: opening people’s minds, opening people’s hearts.” Glass Wings

Darkness and Light at the Adelaide Fringe

I’m thrilled to be going to Adelaide next week to attend the Adelaide Fringe Festival and to helping with some PR for this show, Darkness and Light.

 

Depression and anxiety are often taboo subjects in our society but this Comedy Show is bringing light to the topic through a range of hilarious and talented comedians sharing their stories. This is a subject close to my heart after supporting Black Dog Institute last year when climbing Machu Picchu to raise awareness for Depression and much needed funds for this great organisation.

 

If in Adelaide over the next week, this is a must see!
