Tuck Shop Ladies: A Day In The Life Of A Lesbian Bank Robber

Tuck-Shop-Ladies-Rosie-Burgess-and-Sam-LohsThe Tuck Shop Ladies return to the Melbourne International Comedy Festival with their brand new show, A Day In The Life Of A Lesbian Bank Robber at The Butterfly Club from 5 April 2024.

Some people dress casually, some dress glam. For the Tuck Shop Ladies, it happens to be Lesbian Bank Robber Black. And although they’re both firmly against thievery, in this year’s Melbourne International Comedy Festival they may very well just steal your hearts.

Ever wondered why Darth Vader didn’t want to get to know Leia? And why you never see dogs step in dog poo? Armed with a pair of ukuleles and the quickest of wits, these are just a few of the questions the Tuck Shop Ladies will address in their ever so casual, oh so harmonious show.

The Tuck Shop Ladies are an amalgamation of Australian folk music darlings Sam Lohs (Fruit) and Rosie Burgess (Rosie Burgess Trio). The duo pull back the curtain to share an intimate selection of songs that truly showcase the ridiculousness of everyday life, in effortless harmony.

Since forming in 2019, the pair have taken the folk scene by storm, playing a huge number of festivals across Australia. Renowned for the joy they bring, and their palpable connection, the Tuck Shop Ladies bring a breath of fresh air to the stage with their infectious humour and audience engagement.

In 2023, the Tuck Shop Ladies sold out their debut season at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, proving their 2022 nomination for the Australian Folk Music People’s Choice Award was well and truly deserved.

“I love comedy-music duos, and the Tuck Shop Ladies are my new favourites!” – Miss Chatelaine, Joy FM
