“Roars of side-aching laughter” 5 Stars - Three Weeks

A feisty physical comedy exploring the ever-changing definitions of what it means to be a Woman, by acclaimed Australian comedian Tessa Waters.

WOMANz combines dance, physical theatre, clowning, and cheeky costumes to take the audience on a journey through the pages of ‘herstory’ re-writing the book on what it means to be a WOMANz today. Barnstaple Fringe will host the world premiere of the new solo show from Tessa Waters the creator of the 2012 Edinburgh Fringe hit Sexytime! Come party with WOMANz as she dances you through her world of wobbly, femmy, sexy, lovey, arty, grindy good-bits.

Touted as one of the top ten ‘Next Best Things in Comedy’ by the Sydney Morning Herald and the Age, Tessa Waters is an expert in her field, displaying a natural skill for honest comedy that hits right at the heart of your funny bone. After completing a year of studies with Philippe Gaulier (France) and relocating to London in late 2013 Waters has become a regular on the Alternative Comedy scene performing with Dr Brown, Weirdos Comedy, Laugh Out London and The Grandees.

"Funny as hell." 4½ Stars - The Age

"Tessa Waters is hilarious, pure and simple, and a throbbing reminder that comedy doesn't need words....she will penetrate your pre-conceptions about stand-up, impregnating you with a desire to see her again and again." - The Pun
