Australian Booty

22 - 24 Aug

A sumptuous hour of stories, jokes, music and physical comedy…

Written and performed by Candy Bowers

Australian Booty is an entertaining mix of comedy, social commentary and of course, booty shaking! From the Afro-Aussie sisters behind international smash hit Hot Brown Honey, comes a more intimate yet fiercely powerful show about self-love.

This radical babe weighs in on the Australian identity, interracial dating, Aussie TV and the beauty myth.

Candy B is political, poetic and a little bit naughty in this riotous romp about her rump.

Set to a killer sound track created by the notorious Busty Beatz, Australian Booty will slam, shake and tickle you all the way to the dance floor.

WARNING – Side effects may include uncontrollable booty shaking and higher self-esteem.
