Brent Thorpe, the Biggest Poof in Australia, is 60, fit and dangerous!

While most people his age are looking down the barrel of retirement, not Brent.
He is ageing disgracefully and shaking off invisibility – proving how relevant older people still are. Direct from sell-out shows during 2022 in Barcelona & Berlin, as well as Edinburgh, Adelaide and Sydney Fringe festivals, the ‘Australian theatre veteran’ (sorry, Brent!) brings this hilarious hoot & of a romp to Sydney’s Tap Gallery
23 & 24 February and the Meraki Arts Bar (just down the hill in Darlo) 1 March… before heading to the Melbourne International Comedy Festival – and more venues up and down the country.

If you’re looking for a point of difference, men his age are not often seen on stages saying and doing what he is.

Daddy’ is a new one man show that is a combination of stand-up and character-based comedy. Strap yourself in: you’re about to meet Father Liberace
O’Toole, Craig Faggot and even “Mosman housewife and self-funded retiree” Deirdre Flick – as Brent Thorpe takes you on a wild ride, discovering what life is
like as a Daddy… and how much fun getting older really is! Daddy says, ‘You’re never too old to take a pill and dance on a podium wearing a jockstrap and a harness!’. And there’s nothing wrong with that!

Come experience Daddy (‘the relevant in the room’) directed by iconic Australian theatre veteran Adam Cook (sorry, Adam!), left, on 23 and 24February at the Tap Gallery, Surry Hills and 1 March at the Meraki Arts Bar,
