Giant & Angry
Adelaide Fringe Best Comedy Weekly High Commendation 2016
Directed by Jon Bennett (Pretending Things Are A Cock, Fire in the Meth Lab, The Jason Donovan Show)
Gillian has always been tall. She's been called sasquatch, bigfoot, & giant. Gillian has always been angry. She's been told she's aggressive, combative, and a bitter shrew. Gillian doesn't give sh*t anymore; she's giant and angry for a reason!
Coming from a family of men where rage blackouts were a common occurrence, being angry isn't so much a problem, as a family tradition. "Giant Angry" will delve into one woman's curious relationship with her father, and his insistence that one day, she'll probably have to kill him. A brand new show from one of comedy's most entertaining rising stars!
