As part of he Sydney Festival – A riotous evening of stand up…….

In 2015 award-winning Aussie comic Felicity Ward, as seen on Live at the BBC and her own ABC documentaryFelicity’s Mental Mission, wrote a show about mental illness and her bumhole. Much to her surprise, more people saw it than her immediate family and a guy called Gavin. At the 2015 Edinburgh Festival Fringe it was the third-best reviewed comedy show.

Always one to flog a dead horse, she has written another show about mental illness. 50% More Likely To Dieis a garishly colourful tapestry of pin-sharp comic observations, thoughtful discussion around mental health and some euphoric squawking that’s beautifully woven together.

In her endearingly livewire style, Ward talks about her anxiety without being earnest. Delight in the wonders of her latest invention ‘Chicken Karaoke’, laugh at the correct etiquette of swimming pools and gasp at the indignity of women’s pockets in a killer performance that will have the audience snorting with laughter.

Felicity Ward is an Australian comedian, best known for her TV appearances on Spicks and Specks, Thank God You’re Here, Good News Week and as a writer/performer in the Channel 10 Network television programme The Ronnie Johns Half Hour.
