Xavier Michelides returns to Perth in this delightfully bizarre exploration of his thoughts – the literal real-time creation of a Festival show. Michelides is personable and kind, his jokes volley off the crowd brilliantly – connecting the crowd through all things Generation Y. The guy literally opens by explaining the phrase ‘crack a boner’ yet his humour is only crass when it is clever.

Michelides is the king of call-backs, he weaves his material and stories expertly together through quick little asides and well-crafted jokes. Highlights include a very unique safari adventure, what it is like living next door to a fire station, and what it’s like to have a name popular amongst frequently lost children.

At the base of this show is a comedian who is sure of his craft. His 90s influences and career moves combine to create a clever set, consisting of observational humour with a unique twist. Michelides exposes his though process and has a laugh at himself more than others, it is this affable charm that gets you in a good mood. Lettuce Do This is a solid forty five minutes of good comedy by a comedian in his element.
