FORMER Warwick girl Tessa Waters is hoping to have audiences in stitches with her tales of the rodeo street parade, town hall and SOTE when she performs her comedy show next month.

Miss Waters will present the show, A Little Bit of Standing Up and a Little Bit of Falling Down, at Cafe Jacqui's in an intimate dinner and show setting.

The former SOTE student described her show as a combination of stand-up and slapstick and lists Charlie Chaplin, French and Saunders and Black Adder as some of her comedic influences.

Listed as one of the top 10 emerging comics last year, Miss Waters' humour and style is proving a hit in the cut-throat industry.

"I try to make humour that everyone can relate to and speaks to that dag inside all of us," she said.

"It is totally terrifying to get up on stage every time but when you get a laugh out of the audience it is the best feeling in the world," she said.

"You feel like you have a superpower to overcome the terror."

Next month will be the comic's first opportunity to perform her show in Warwick.

"I helped open the auditorium at SOTE and did a short show and since then I have had people asking me to come back," she said.

"This will be my first opportunity to come back to my hometown and perform and it is really exciting."

 

Tessa will perform at Cafe Jacqui's on Sunday, May 20.

Tickets are $45 for the dinner and show or $20 for the show only.

To purchase tickets phone 4661 9022 or drop into Cafe Jacqui's on Albion St.
