Lou is a millennial. A perennial millennial if you will. Born in the nineties, raised in the noughties, she is part of the 'entitled, lazy and too connected to the internet' generation—But who said that? Obvs not a millennial #amirite?

Forget timeless. Be viral. Forget Friends. Get Followers. Forget love. Get likes. Inspired by Facebook, mentored by Instagram and guided by Snapchat, this show sees award nominated comedian Lou Wall write 8 original songs based on 8 real-life Facebook statuses.

Nominated for Best Cabaret at Melbourne Fringe Festival 2017 and a recipient of the Emerging Cabaret Artiste Grant at the Melbourne Cabaret Festival, Lou’s second solo show, is her wildest hour yet. A rollicking romp through 21st Century life, her playful cynicism and cutting wit features in an impressive original score with her personal brand of ‘I Don’t Like Cabaret’, Cabaret.

Delve into a #21stcentury world and strap in for a wild night of living for a Like and celebrating the millennial revolution. If you have Facebook, this is the show for you. If you have heard about Facebook, this is the show for you. If you have ever made a Facebook status— you might just be part of the show and fact—this is the show for you!
