We Want To Be Better: Live Podcast

TICKETS AVAILABLE CLICK HERE 

We Want To Be Better is an upskilling podcast unlike any other. It thrives off humour, self-deprecation, self-acceptance, and friendship; its’ distinctive, edgy nature is fresh to Australian comedy. Simply put, each week the girls identify something theyre not super great at and challenge themselves to be better. Conceived by Annie and Bianka in 2017, this concept and their fresh, honest approach has proven so popular that they’re already collecting 25,000 downloads a month.

Through a combination of sharp wit, self-deprecation, hilarious life commentary and brutal honesty the girls discuss their attempts and endeavours to be, well, better. While they are already pretty fabulous, there is always room for improvement. Take a break from worrying about your own ineptitudes and listen to Annie and Bianka openly discuss their own.  Say goodbye to Googling “how-to” – this podcast is about grabbing on to life, giving things a try, and accepting (and to be honest, expecting) failures along the way.

Annie is the eccentric - kind, responsible and goofy. The outgoing mother of three has a home that is constantly taking in rescued animals. Annie’s life often makes headlines. She‘s been coined the “Anti WAG” of the AFL by the media because of her alternative family life style and her willingness to make bold statements.

Meanwhile, Bianka is over confident, semi-vulgar, a pop culture queen, and a party gal. She’s like the best friend you’d find yourself locked up with - out several nights of the week and with few responsibilities beyond making rent and maintaining a social lifestyle. Bianka’s confidence and carefree attitude is infectious. She is the voice of reason to Annie’s overthinking nature.

The pair often have fans asking each other, “Are you an Annie or a Bianka?”

In the landscape of current Australian society and feminist empowerment, this modest podcast is just want we need to hear.

It’s inclusive. Not only because you feel like you’re spending time with friends, but also because they’re on a mission for understanding others, and social inclusion.

Join Annie, Bianka and their fan base of people actively perusing betterment, over a laugh and a wine when We Want To Be Better hits the Comedy Festival for the very first time!

????? "Always so real, funny, informative and honest. I binged this all week, made me laugh, cry and look at my own beliefs. Keep it up girls! I love it!" Larnsy

????? "Utter Fanboy here. This podcast is truly amazing - completely sincere but not saccharine, and the laughs just keep on rolling. Most importantly, it manages to be hilarious yet somehow managing to instil a sense of social advocacy without being preachy" fijisushi108         

????? "I just spent a week on holidays laughing out loud on my sun lounger like a weirdo at your funny stories. Keep up the candour, comedy and being so freakin cool” CBINZI

Confessions of a Twenty Something Train Wreck

TICKETS AT https://frntr.co/COATSTW19Melb

 Frontier Comedy is thrilled to present the live podcasting debut from the inaugural winner of NOVA Entertainment’s 2017 Podquest initiative, Phoebe Parsons.

 Confessions of a Twenty Something Train Wreck focuses on its creator, narrator and driving force - Phoebe. She’s a twenty something ‘train wreck’ who has failed just about every aspect of her adult personal life. From men and money, to health insurance and housemates, she has been there, done that. Now in its seventh season, Phoebe is ready to take the chart-topping podcast to the stage!

 The relatable podcast focuses on a young life beset by disasters, mishaps and ‘train-wreck’ moments. With her girlfriends blown away by the endless stream of complicated and dramatic stories Phoebe was constantly entangling herself in, Confessions is Phoebe’s life in a nutshell – and although at times her girlfriends can be a bit shy to open up, very few topics are out of bounds for Parsons!

 But her personal life... its a Train Wreck. If you cant run out of petrol in peak hour traffic (more than once), accrue over $2K in toll fines and have the tax office on speed dial, are you even a Train Wreck?

 Her passion for content creation, combined with with her pile up of bad luck, lead her to launch her chart topping podcast Confessions of a Twenty Something Train Wreck which is now into its 7th season, and frequently tops the charts.

 Don’t miss Phoebe Parsons when she brings her life-affirming podcast to the stage for the very first time!

Ron Funches

TICKETS AVAILABLE CLICK HERE 

Razor-sharp yet soft and cuddly like a baby’s blanket, Ron Funches is a hugely in demand US comedian who frequently headlines shows across the US, UK and Canada – and he is finally making his Australian debut!

LA-born, Chicago-raised Funches made his stand-up comedy debut after relocating to Salem, Oregon as a teen. Citing Steven Wright, Tig Notaro and Todd Barry amongst his influences, Ron’s loveable laidback stage persona is a perfect vessel for his incisive observations on everything from casual racism to raising a son with autism.

Described as “comedy’s relaxing equivalent of a glass of wine in a fragrant bubble bath” by UK comedy Bible Chortle, Ron’s easy-going, inventive style sounds the way fresh chocolate chip cookies taste. Funches regularly performs stand-up on The Conan O’Brien Show and The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon and his first TV special, The Half Hour on Comedy Central, was ranked as the 11th-best of 2014 by Vulture. Now with his full hour, Giggle Fit, already shot and confirmed for release in early 2019, it seems the world can’t get enough of the “big cuddly teddy bear” with the soft voice and biting wit.

From performing in roles alongside John Travolta in Get Hard and Chris D’Elia in Undateable to writing for The Eric Andre Show and appearing on Drunk History, John Olivers New York Stand Up Show, Portlandia, Bojack Horseman, and Another Period, to frequently joining the round-table on Chelsea Lately, Ron’s credits read like a ‘best of’ the most popular comedy TV & movies of the decade.

With a genuinely unique style of performance, Ron’s low-key delivery, incisive punchlines and shrewd set-ups led the New York Times to declare that he "Purrs like a kitty cat, stings like a bee."

As a lovely as a big teddy bear with a unique delivery and lovable demeanour, don’t miss Ron Funches as he spreads the joy on his Australian debut in 2019!

"Funches takes to the stage like a boxer... telling tales that are charmingly frivolous. A delight" Chortle (UK)

"A subtle, savvy performer" New York Times (US)

"Purrs like a kitty cat, stings like a bee" New York Times (US)

????1/2 "Funches is one of the most original voices in the stand-up comedy world right now, and his hysterical material is crafted with incredible finesse" Exclaim.ca (US)
"Funches’s wry worldview and fun-loving spirit are infectious, and there are intriguing flashes of steel beneath the surface jollity" The Guardian (UK)
