Mel Buttle: How Embarrassment
Tue 5 - Sun 10 Mar 2013
Mel Buttle (triple j) is a comedian from Brisbane who struggles with embarrassment, her desire to put cats in costumes, the paid parking at Chermside and keeping up to date with writing in her feelings journal.
Mel Buttle is proud to debut her hotly anticipated new show, in her home town of Brisbane, Mel has had a cracker of a year, scoring a column in The Courier Mail and her own segment with Tom and Alex on triple j. Not to mention, her hit podcast The Minutes with Mel and Patience debuted at #2 overall on the iTunes (whatever though).
Despite her success Mel Buttle is writing this with Cheezel stained fingers in her pajamas but wants you to know even though she’s crippled by this awkard third person writing style she’s very professional.
‘Oh no, you’re not going to write that are you?’ – Mel’s mum.
Contains coarse language and adult themes. Recommended for people aged 15 years or older.
'Buttle has the right mix of confidence and vulnerability to get the audience on side and the material to keep them there … there is something about Buttle that brings a young Judith Lucy to mind. It would come as no surprise if she was just as successful.' - Brisbane Courier Mail
'With the confidence, presence and sarcasm of a young Kitty Flanagan, Buttle had the audience eating out of her hand with some hilariously wrong stories…' - The West Australian
