After smashing the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, with sold out shows and an encore performance, the Tight Mums are back for one hilarious show at the Geelong Comedy Festival at The Brewery. A smorgasbord of stand-up comedy and song, 4 multi-cultural mammas, crash and cut loose, challenging society’s expectations of women.
2 happily married, 2 happily divorced gals from diverse cultures, they feel the pressures placed on women to be perfect wives and mothers - tightly wound, tight friends, tight bodies. But when they hit the stage, they’re loose units!
Pradeepa Timmermans has opened for Dave O'Neil, Tom Gleeson, Anne Edmonds & Joe White. Pradeepa has 4 MICF shows under her belt and a podcast ‘Uncomfortable Truths’, where she interviews Melbourne based comedians. A 2023 Raw Comedy semi-finalist.
Marilyn Leder has shared the stage with Chris Rock in L.A., toured Australasia in ‘Buddy-The Buddy Holly Story’ musical and has worked in script development for ABC Comedy and NBC Television in the heyday of ‘Seinfeld’, ‘Frasier’ and ‘Friends’. Marilyn’s 2022 debut solo show, ‘The MILF Next Door’ was a MICF and Fringe Festival knockout. A 2023 Raw Comedy Honourable Mention.
Aarti Vincent has performed several MICF & Adelaide Fringe shows. Having hung up her yoga teacher’s mat she has been killing audiences regularly around Melbourne, Adelaide and recently Bali with her observational humour.
Lisa Lee has performed at MICF and Melbourne Fringe and has also set Vietnamese stages ablaze. She is an unapologetic opinionated diva, Chinese by birth, American by choice, and Australian by chance. Lisa Lee drops the truth bombs like it ain’t nobody’s business! Lisa is invincible with the race card in her left pocket and the gender card in her right pocket! A 2021 Raw Comedy semi-finalist.
"These four bombshells hit the stage with a vengeance... Be ready to be challenged, surprised and laugh till your guts hurt... This fast-moving comedy spotlights four talented comedians who share stories of diversity… and they hit the nail on the head every time... Completely relatable and disgustingly hilarious." - Weekend Notes
