Berger, no ham

Rachel Berger thinks life is funny. Ha ha. And she will tell us all about it when this high profile queen of comedy comes to the North Coast soon.

Rachel Berger will perform with Mandy Nolan at the Byron Bowling Club next Monday, March 5, from 8pm.

This will be a big night two extremely funny women sharing their comedic insights and feminine wit.

Rachel Berger started her big-time comedy career on the ABCs Big Gig in the early 90s. Since then she has had four sell-out shows at the Edinburgh Festival and has appeared on Rove Live, Good News Week, The Glasshouse, Tonite Live and Denton.

Rachel is a regular columnist with The Age, a novelist (So, Youre Allergic to Rubber?) and one of this countrys finest stand-up comedians.

One critic from the Guardian in London was so impressed he remarked, Its the offbeat observation, the incisive knack of showing up everyday events for the ludicrous pantomimes they really are, that separate the women from the girls. In this department, Rachel Berger is a real star...

Her material is political, psychological and socially conscious. It encompasses contemporary lifestyles, offering a hilarious and poignant expos of human foibles.

In relation to federal politics, she once said, Whenever I think of our Prime Minister, I get the same feeling as when Im being made love to by a man especially that part where he says, Sorry, this doesnt usually happen. Ha.

The show is part of the Whole Woman Festival.

Tickets are $25 and can be booked by phoning 6684 3443, or at the club.

Freebie: The Echo has a double pass to give away to some lucky reader. To go in the draw to win phone 6622 2888 between 10.30 & 10.45am next Monday, March 5, and tell us if Edinburgh is the capital of Scotland. Yes or no.
