Australian born author, screenwriter, journalist, party girl and all-round bon vivant Kathy Lette is coming back to Fringe, with her Australian debut of live show Kathy Lette’s Big Night Out.
Her one-woman comedy show is full of witty tales of love, lust, marriage, making the Queen laugh, hiding Julian Assange in her attic, tongue-kissing Prince William and close encounters of the George Clooney kind.
Kathy will also talk poignantly about the trials and hilarity of raising her son Jules, who on the autistic spectrum is now a successful actor on the UK TV series Holby City.
Kathy first achieved succès de scandale as a teenager with the novel Puberty Blues, which was made into a major film and a TV mini-series.
She has gone on to write 12 international bestsellers, including Mad Cows (which was made into a film starring Joanna Lumley and Anna Friel), How to Kill Your Husband (and Other Handy Household Hints) staged by the Victorian opera, The Boy Who Fell to Earth, Courting Trouble, and Best Laid Plans – soon to be an 8-hour TV series. Her novels have also been published in 17 languages around the world.
Kathy loves to meet the audience so she’ll be signing books and having a chat after the show.
So grab your girlfriends for this one. We’re told wit, warmth and full frontal frankness are guaranteed (men, attend at your own risk)!
Kathy Lette’s Big Night Out is on at Gluttony from March 5-16 at 8.10pm. Get your tickets here.
