So that’s us for now. Our run with MICF was absolutely incredible! Here are a few highlights.
- A Golden Gibbo nomination!
- A whole bunch of awesome reviews and four stars in The Age! Four!
- Over 600 people attended, that is over 600 people who we have ruined!
- We got to see a whole lot of hilarious, inspirational shows and meet a whole lot of amazing, brilliant comedians.
- A couple of nights that sold out and some very loud, responsive audiences who we adored.
- Someone told us Daniel Kitson saw our show. We have no idea if he liked it or not and frankly, we’re not too worried whether or not he did, it just makes us happy to know we now occupy some space within his brain.
Slutmonster was the first show we’ve ever made and this was the first MICF we’ve ever done so we are absolutely, overwhelmingly pleased with what a wonderful run we had. But we could not have done it by ourselves, we really couldn’t have, so here are some very awesome people who we need to thank!
First of all, a huge thank you to Darebin Arts Speakeasy, Beau McCafferty, Paul Bilbsy, our awesome tech guy Ben Johnson (and his excellent stand-in Claire), Aneke McCulloch, and the entire Northcote Town Hall crew, all of whom have been excellent, professional and lovely to work with. Thank you to the amazing artists we shared a venue with; you guys are all so talented and hilarious that it was a privilege to be included in such a great mixture of people. Thank you to The Last Tuesday Society for one of the most fun nights ever. Thanks also to the MICF staff, who have been ace whenever we have dealt with them.
A million thank yous to Marc McIntyre for his awesome puppet making, Adam Lyon for his hilarious narration of the animation, Lauren Olney for the amazing photos she took for our poster, Eff Pan for his fantastic poster design and Shetland Pony fetish, Brett Ludeman and Storybottle.com for filming the best promo video we’ve ever had, Zoy Frangos for making sweet love to Slutmonster in our promo video, Josh Storham for his wicked guitar riffs. Thankyou to VCA for letting us rehearse in their space.
Thank you Lisa-Skye for your amazing support and advice, Dylan Smith for being our rad techie at Fringe, Alan and Peter for lending us mics, Roz, Andrew, Nicole, Aimee, Ian, Andre, Olya and Tom, all wonderful people who have helped in a myriad of ways.
Thank you to each and every person who came to see the show, who helped to spread the word, who brought along friends, thank you to the comedians who tweeted us and mentioned us on the radio. Thank you to the radio stations that had us and the lovely reviewers who saw our show and said lovely things. Thanks especially to Richard Watts who has been one of the best things for our egos ever!
And last of all, Janet McLeod for her support and advice. Being a part of MICF has been one of the most fulfilling experiences of our lives and it might have never happened without Janet convincing us it was a good idea.
There are probably people we are forgetting to thank because we’ve had so much incredible support for this show that it’s a little overwhelming. It gives us big, fat, throbbing warm fuzzies just to think about.
We are yet to decide on what the future holds for Slutmonster but one thing we can say for absolute certain is that this won’t be the last you see from us. We want to make more shows and we want to make them bigger, weirder and perhaps even more fucked up than Slutmonster has been.
The appropriate reaction to this information is fear and a weird boner.
