Dirty Girl is the hotly anticipated debut show from Bec Charlwood.
Bec’s ability to keep things PG is not good – she can turn any subject blue. You would think it’s genetic, except her family are academics and high achievers, so she has no idea where her humour comes from.
Dirty Girl will take a closer look at Bec’s squeaky-clean family and her desire to make them proud.
Read on to spend 5 minutes with Bec Charlwood:
How would you describe your show to someone who knew nothing about it?
It’s a girl telling dirty jokes! So if you’re into one of those two things you’ll enjoy at least 50% if this show.
What/Who was its inspiration?
My Mum and her strong dislike for my comedy.
What do you think its best quality is?
Why should people see it?
You don’t have to but if you like fun and a laughing, you should probably give it a crack I reckon.
If there is one thing you would like to say to your fans, what is it?
Thanks you’re the best!
Who or what has been the greatest influence on your career?
My inability to stay employed in any job that requires me to show up before 11am.
Who makes you want to create, be funny – Who inspires you?
Ok serious answer now, other female stand ups like Ali Wong, Amy Schumer, Maria Bamford and Katherine Ryan to just name a few. Also Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson from Broad City are amazing also.
When did it become clear to you that comedy and entertainment were your passions?
Honestly I forget until I step on to the stage, and I’m like “Oh damn, That’s right. I freaking love this!”
What does comedy, creation and entertainment mean to you?
It means my parents never, ever, ever, ever being able to explain to people what I do for a job. Some of their guesses include “She’s like Fitzy and Wippa on the radio”, “I think she’s going back to uni soon.” & “She is trying to get into acting, I think?”
What are 3 words that describe you?
Never on time
What are 3 things that would surprise people to learn about you?
Before I did comedy I was Zumba instructor, I love Phil Collins and I know all the words to “Semi-charmed Life’ By Third Eye Blind
How excited are you to be performing in front of a live audience again after last year’s covid shut down?
Terrified! Let’s hope this thing doesn’t get cancelled again. Stay the heck home if you’re sick!
What is next for you?
Seeing the most beautiful, smart and cool people in the audience in Melbourne! TICKETS STILL DEFINITELY STILL AVAILABLE!
