THE STUDIO AT SYDNEY OPERA HOUSE PRESENTS
‘Humour so caustic it could strip paint off a railing’ -
DRINK EDDIE™ BITCH! WRITTEN AND PERFORMED BY EDDIE PERFECT
The Scotsman, Aug 05
‘An impressive cocktail of slick satire, sickly sweet tunes and occasionally sick lyrics’ -Evening Standard, Aug 05
Eddie Perfect is back! The mischievous Melbournite who brought you Angry Eddie,
the blacker-than-black musical comedy that deconstructed politics, war, mass media, apathy and juice-bar girls returns from an acclaimed UK tour and is ready to play dirty. Perfect’s new cabaret assault, Drink Eddie™ Bitch! arrives with Eddie’s cleverly subversive, post-modern patter at The Studio, Sydney Opera House in a strictly limited season from 19 – 29 October.
This time his satirical attack-dogs are set on globalisation, materialism, anarchy and sex. Want more? He’ll throw in drug and conspiracy theories for free. Not content with merely smashing the state, Eddie Perfect has packaged himself as the ultimate global brand to bring down the free market from within.
With Drink Eddie™ Bitch! Eddie’s intoxicating showmanship charms and entertains with a bittersweet satirical edge. From Oprah to Ikea, this cabaret takes franchising, branding and PR spin at its slickest, funniest and most aggressively persuasive.
Perfect, who’s clocked up Green Room, Fringe and Comedy Festival honours and made the top ten in last year’s Bulletin magazine Smart 100 awards, bites back with often fierce, no-holds-barred lyrics.
You loved him in The Big Con, now buy into the franchise that guarantees the slickest, funniest and most aggressively wrapped show in town - complete with band and brazen humour. With a boy-next-door angel’s face and a smile like the devil, Eddie will grab you where it hurts - and he won’t be letting go.
