Queer comedy collective set to wreak havoc with slick, saucy show!
PO PO MO CO – an orgy of outrageous and rambunctious queer performers are set to unleash their hair raising, pube curling comedy on audiences at the Perth FRINGEWORLD 2017. The brainchild of Kimberley Twiner, PO PO MO CO (aka Post Post Modern Comedy) have earned a sassy comedic reputation in Melbourne across 2016.

Months of work has seen radical and raging shows pumped out monthly since the Midsumma Festival in January 2016.

PO PO MO CO are now resident comedy ensemble at award winning queer venue – The Hare Hole at Hares & Hyenas in Fitzroy. PO PO MO CO have been drawing crowds, selling out shows and running fundraisers allied with all things queer.

Twiner, said; “These are shit hot, unapologetic performers who I’ve spied around the comedy traps of Melbourne. Performers who can bring it; wicked senses of humour and ruthless in creating NEW comedy.” Taking physical comedy and theatrics to new extremes the group proudly revel in the high-risk night that

leaves an audience thirsty for more. Twiner confesses:

 “We are shamelessly theatrical,

this really is polished stupidity.”

 

Audiences must expect the full gamut – drag, contemporary clown, neo burlesque, performance art, sketch comedy, character guises, cult vaudeville, seething parody, and political satire. Not to mention butt cheeks, camel toes, nip slips and running mascara from tears of laughter!

This group of talented queer performers share credits across Theatre, Film, Circus, Comedy and Design. The core ensemble members have found their training in such places as the prestigious Ecole Philippe Gaulier, John Bolton Theatre School, and Victorian College of the Arts. The group is comprised of Amaya Vecellio, Anna Lehmann Thomson, Claire Sullivan, David Maney, Kimberley Twiner and Thomas Quirk.
