From lockdown to the Opera House 

After spending a large part of 2020 in a Melbourne lockdown together, Anne & Lloyd have decided now is the time to go on a national tour. Come and witness these two comedians live. There’ll be jokes, stories, songs and quite possibly the thrilling spectacle of the onstage breakdown of their relationship. 

Anne Edmonds is uncompromising, fearless and hilarious.  She is a regular guest on Have You Been Paying Attention? and The Project while her alter-ego characters shine in Get Krack!n and At Home Alone Together. Her stand-up special released earlier this year on Amazon Prime has been making audiences cry with laughter. 

“Rolling with the confidence and energy of a prize fighter, Edmonds in touchingly engaging and horrifyingly cruel – often in the same sentence.” ★★★★ Herald Sun
