This Saturday night Speakeasy HQ will present a lineup of vaudeville legends as a staggering FIFTEEN acts take the stage!!
With so much talent in the room, there are still one or two artists who stand out in their chosen professions because hey have a certain magic about what they perform. One such artist who never goes unnoticed is comedian Nicky Barry. Described as the Funniest Woman Alive she manages to deliver at every event she ever performs at. With her side splitting material about her home town of coburg, body hair and public transport, Ms Barry is a comedian who is loved by the masses!
So we room Nicky aside as she readies her Schtick in preparation for Saturday nights show and asked her a bunch of question.
Who are you and how did your career get here?
I’m Nicky and I’m a stand-up comedian from Coburg. I got here because I love hanging around in bars late at night with social misfits. Comedy is the perfect career for such activity – occasionally you even get paid for it.
What will you be performing at Speakeasy HQ on Saturday night?
I will be sharing my recent discovery of self-love and workshopping some of my new techniques with the audience.
What has been your career highlight and why?
As a “newbie” comic, I performed to a very full Spiegeltent at a Comedy Gala in 2013 with a group of very distinguished comedians. I received a great response from the audience and lots of encouragement from the other comics. It made me believe I might actually be able to give comedy a red-hot go.
What is your greatest hope and fear for your career?
My greatest hope is that it will continue……….and that I will give “great comedy” every time I step up to the mic. My greatest fear is that I turn into a parody of myself. Or that I start wearing sensible shoes on stage….actually, that would be marginally worse.
In 100 years’ time if there is a bronze statue made of you what will the name plate say?
Dear Pigeons, not the face. Anywhere but the face!!!!!
