Zoë Coombs Marr: The Opener

Zoë Coombs Marr


WINNER – Herald Angel Award, Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2019

WINNER – Most Outstanding Show, Melbourne Comedy Festival 2016

A lesbian comedian plays a hack male comedian who’s just come out of a coma… We regret to inform you DAVE is back.

The Opener is a long awaited kaleidoscopic mobius strip of pants-wetting gags, and the latest fiasco from Australian comedy mastermind Zoë Coombs Marr. Dave’s awake, he’s woke, and he’s processing the modern world all at once and bursting with hot takes. What could go wrong?

An acid fueled balm for our times. Not to be missed.

★★★★ As someone who likes her comedy feminist, queer and independent, Zoë Coombs Marr fingers all the boxes.

Time Out

★★★★★ Dave is a comedy turducken of gross-out gags, absurdist humour and sharply observed parody.

The Age

★★★★★ A master-class in meta humour.

The Herald (UK)

★★★★ Stand-up at its subversive best.

Evening Standard (UK)

Further notes
