She had great success with her debut solo show, “Who Let the Dyke Out”, even doing a run at The Melbourne Comedy Festival earlier this year. She is raw and honest and totally hilarious and she’ll even let you but her a beer at the end of the show.
A unique voice in the Sydney scene, John Glover is a comedian, improviser and storyteller who’s equal parts sassy and sweet. The RAW Comedy NSW State Finalist is inviting and relatable with his warm yet cheeky style, weaving tales of his life with the silliest of attitudes.
