Circus Trick Tease brings Werk It to Melbourne International Comedy Festival

Werk It

With the Melbourne International Comedy Festival underway, look no further than the zany and fun Werk It, a circus show incorporating spandex, high-vis and unearthly vitality and vigour. With eye-popping colours., sass and just a hint of tradie combined with a spin instructor mixed with a healthy serving of cross-training sorcery, it is delivered by an all-star cast.

It features outrageous circus by Australia’s hottest acrobats, including award-winning Vincent van Berkel (Can’t Face), hula hoop sensation Lisa Lottie (Neon), manipulation idol Richard Sullivan (Throw Catch Collective), real life strong woman Cassia Jamieson (NICA) and fierce as hell Malia Walsh (Circus Trick Tease).

You can expect healthy servings of skill, thrill and comedy. Be dazzled and entertained. It’s the sort of show that you can see, then see again.

Werk It

Circus Trick Tease has been touring internationally for ten years. They started in 2008 at the Melbourne Fringe, and have three prestigious seasons at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival under their taut belt. They’ve also got nine awards, and a ton of stars.

Their vibrant spandex and high-vis hot pants, landing acrobats, hula hoopers and strong women will shake, thrust and shimmy their way into your hearts. If you want a feel for what you will be in for, do check out the teaser below.
