JUDE PERL – IS IT JUST ME?
After a sell out season of her debut show in the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, singer, songwriter and comedian Jude Perl brings her highly successful show “Is It Just Me?” to Merredin!
In her “thoroughly entertaining show” (Melbourne Observer) and undeniably catchy tunes mixed with her unique brand of humour will charm and inspire in this hilarious and revealing semi-autobiographical tale
“If good comedy and good music is your recipe for a good night out then this show is a must” – Theatre Press
“Insanely clever and comical song writing. Her lyrics are insightful and hilarious because of their honesty, and her talent for writing hugely enjoyable music only makes the comedy stronger” – Melbourne Observer
“Perl manages to draw the complete attention of her audience from her opening phrase. There is a narrative sureness in her voice to match its timbral warmth. Like Ute Lemper, Perl has the kind of instrument that inspires lyricists not to slack off, to invest more in their songs” – The Australian
