There are few that can rustle up a room quite like Geraldine Hickey. Sharp as a freshly stropped razor, Hickey’s wry observational comedy has endeared itself to a nation that loves nothing more than a chuckle. Her knack for turning low-key yarns about agapanthuses and bouncy-castles into high-stakes narrative rollercoasters has culminated in her Most Outstanding Show award at the 2021 Melbourne Comedy Festival for What A Surprise: later picked up by Paramount Plus.
Hickey’s 2019 show Things Are Going Well also received a nomination for the Melbourne Comedy Festival Award for Most Outstanding Show, whilst she also took home the highly coveted comedians’ choice Piece of Wood Award. She brings her latest show Now I’ve Got A Boat (yep, you guessed it…she bought a boat) to Wanderer Festival. Strap in… this could get a little bumpy.
