LIGHT & SHADE IN THE TIME OF COVID CHAOS with THE QUEEN OF FUN
BARBARELLA COMEDY SHOWS
Arielle Nakache – known as the QUEEN of FUN – launched Barbarella Comedy Nights just before COVID struck our shores. Knowing that laughter is the best medicine, Barbarella loves to delight the community as well as support artists with her hilariously fun comedy shows which have all sold out since her first show at Bondi Bowlo in March.
Shortly after her first show, Arielle separated from her husband and best friend, and was left broken-hearted, grieving and in dire need of some (extra) hugs. This provided her with material for a whole set of shows based on some seriously dark gallows humour about life and love. The timing of her shows also saw the creation of Barbarella’s COVID CAPOEIRA – an unpredictable, jerky dance that provides an outlet to help Barbarella cope with the fact that hugs (and hook-up sex!) can be a rare commodity in the current climate.
“Virtual hugs, elbow and ankle taps or air kisses just don’t cut it when you really need a big hug to help you get through the day…if you can’t get a hug during these tough times, how the hell are we supposed to get our spiritual healing? Marvin Gaye would be turning in his grave!” comments Arielle. As Bondi’s Mrs Maiself and Razzle Dazzle MC, Barbarella presents her shows (which she regards as cheap therapy!) with old school razzle dazzle flair and always ensures the audience joins in on a song or some spontaneous play.
Barbarella is hosting a series of shows based on the themes Family, Love, Gender, Culture and Age in the coming months at venues around Sydney, including Bondi Bowlo & Potts Point Hotel. A Comedy Showcase is also on the horizon as Barbarella would love to welcome newcomers to the stage who may be well rehearsed, but may still suffer stage jitters in front of a live audience. All comedy nights feature the Queen of Fun and a wonderful array of comedians and musicians, excited to have the chance to perform live during these unsettling times.
Barbarella loves to delight and woo others to join her for guaranteed FUN, especially in this current climate of uncertainty and chaos. The Queen of FUN is proud of her guarantee and backs it with the promise to circle the venue naked should anyone not be getting their money’s worth!
