Skitch Tease

An intimately revealing comic cabaret with the acclaimed Liz Skitch.
It’s like she’s working magic on the audience.
– The Pun, Melbourne International Comedy Festival

Wearing nothing but heels, fishnets and a strategically placed accordion, no one is safe in this tell-all tale of Liz’s extraordinary life. With “sugar-coated viciousness” (DB Magazine) she tackles ex-boyfriends, her mum, empty headed teenage girls, banal tourists, babies and baboons.

Dripping with double entendre Skitch Tease has a rollicking old vaudeville feel; it’s naughty but nice – Marilyn Monroe meets Judith Lucy with a pinch of Jerry Lewis.

Skitch Tease is a fast-paced accordion accompanied blend of songs, stories and sensational punch lines.

Skitch Tease premiered at the 2010 Adelaide Fringe Festival and has since wowed audiences at The Adelaide Fringe Festival, Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Woodford Folk Festival, and in the UK at Brighton Fringe Festival, Edinburgh Fringe Festival and Glastonbury Festival.

The reviews are in for Skitch Tease ...

Flirty fun which squeezes your funny bone in all the right places.
– Edinburgh Spotlight
Hilarious songs, involving comedy and a cabaret turn to die for, make Liz Skitch’s hour pass in a flash. Her burlesque-style routine is the big selling point, but she has depth in both delivery and material.
– The Stage, Edinburgh
Laced with punchy one-liners and witty stories and songs that target anything and everything.
– The Advertiser
Guilt laden laughter remains with you well after the show, the dark pall of her cheeky accordion ringing in your ears.
– DB Magazine
Skitch’s delivery is immaculately timed.
– The Pun, Melbourne
Skitch is natural storyteller. She’s confident, zany and really sweet, and even when she’s being meowww catty you still want to take her home and introduce her to your mum.
will laugh, sing, cheer and applaud, and then you will sing her praises.
