Written & Performed by Candy B, Musical Direction & Original Composition by Busty Beatz Directed by Nelly Thomas.
Hot from Melbourne International Comedy Festival Candy B is at large and curvaceous with her latest smash hit Australian Booty. In a sumptuous hour of shocking stories, jokes, music and physical comedy she explores the depth, width and circumference of the booty myth Oz-style.
“I grew up in the Aussie ‘burbs watching Soapies and reading Dolly magazine, in the 1990’s there weren’t many big black women to look “at”- let alone to look “up” to… There weren’t that many big women for that matter. Anyone watch the 2012 Logies? There still isn’t!” Candy B
There was a time when this big-assed rap-diva believed her body was wrong and the Home and Away ideal was right. When she turned 30 she finally started to listen to the rebellious voice in her head (it took a while because it kinda sounded like Flavor Flav so who could blame her) the voice said, “Don’t Believe The Hype! Don’t Believe The Hype!”
Directed by her Comedy hero, the brilliant Nelly Thomas, Candy B tells it like it is on interracial relationships, Hip Hop culture, Black Barbie, Booty Pride and her undeniable “thing” for Ginger hair. This South African/Australian girl is reclaiming the term “Fatty Boom Boom” and man will she be wiggling it! Reuniting with long term Musical Director (and older sibling) the notorious Busty Beatz, these two bitchin’ sisters will have you in the aisles shaking what ya mama gave you!
“Candy B flows between conversational stand-up, musical numbers and cultural commentary without missing a step.” (4 stars Herald Sun)
“Candy B is drop-dead gorgeous, jaw-aching funny and proves that we can and will remix attitudes.” (Aussie Theatre)
