TICKETS to funny girl Tessa Waters' first comedy show in hometown Warwick are selling like Jacqui Dwan's famous pancakes.

The rising comedian will take centre stage at Cafe Jacqui's next Sunday and is likely to have crowds in stitches with her tales of growing up in Warwick.

Mrs Dwan said she seized the opportunity to host the show, as she thought it would bring something fresh to the Rose City.

"When Tess phoned I thought this would be something different to bring to Warwick," she said.

"I think the town wants something a little different - I think it needs something different."

Mrs Dwan said the fact the two women were proud Warwickites made them a force to be reckoned with.

"She's a Warwick person and I'm a Warwick person so we work well together," she said.

Long-lost friends and old school buddies have jumped at the chance to see their friend's act for the first time.

Despite having just sold out shows in Brisbane and being declared one of the hottest new comics, Miss Waters says she can't wait to perform for the smaller Warwick crowd.

"It should be a great home crowd and a lot of the show is about growing up here and the funny things that happen in Warwick," she said.

Coupled with Jacqui's loyal fan base, the show is proving to be a hit in Warwick before the curtain has even been drawn.

There are only about 16 seats at next week's show still up for grabs and Miss Waters said she was considering adding a second show to meet demand.

"Some people have said they would like to be able to come at an earlier time and we are looking at possibly doing something at around a 3pm time slot," Miss Waters said.

A two-course dinner of homemade soups and scrumptious desserts will be on the menu for show goers. Those who would rather forgo the meal and just enjoy the show can do that also.

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.
