Your lockdown plans just got a bit more adventurous. Melbourne cabaret queen Ali McGregor is back to host a hilarious online variety show, with a little bit of a twist. Much like the Choose Your Own Adventure books of the 80s you get to choose which act to watch next, along with some extra songs and hidden tid-bits!

In this episode, comedian Claire Hooper shows audiences what she has been learning at ‘home school’; stand-up comedian and actor David Quirk shares a short story of a date gone wrong and gives insight into his mad skating skillz; burlesque royalty Zelia Rose shares the debut of her super slick space adventure filmed just before lockdown; The Bombay Royale singer Parvyn debuts her new single – a delicious trad-electro hybrid – along with some verandah Kathak dancing, then cabaret star Jude Perl sings of the joys of share houses and Violet Crumbles.

This episode is available to stream on demand for two weeks.


Presented by Arts Centre Melbourne in association with Ali McGregor & Working Management.
