Comedian & ABC podcast host Ange Lavoipierre is bringing her award-winning show Zealot to Melbourne in 2021.

From Santa-based existentialism to Bible camp and a detour into Tarot, one-time true believer Ange Lavoipierre charts the course from 10-year-old evangelist to fully-fledged heathen.

Most of the ways God was explained to her have only inspired yet more questions. Does Santa believe in himself? Whomst amongst us will go to heaven? Was God the original herpes carrier? And is the blue Google Maps dot sentient? Zealot has answers in the form of tall stories and absurd characters that will give you plenty to believe in.

Zealot is Ange’s second hour of comedy, following the success of her debut, Final Form, which won a Best Comedy weekly award at last year’s Adelaide Fringe Festival before going on to sell-out shows at Sydney, Melbourne and Edinburgh Fringe.

Zealot is making its long-anticipated journey to Melbourne after taking out a Weekly Best Comedy Award at the Fringe in 2020 and enjoying a sold-out run at the 2021 Sydney Comedy Festival.

Ange is the creator and co-host of ABC’s daily news & current affairs podcast, The Signal. Zealot opens at The Butterfly Club on Friday, 18 June for a strictly limited two night season.

Bookings highly recommended.

June 18 and 19
