Combining amazing vocals, wicked humour, clever writing and leaving no artist out, some of SuperGirly’s victims have included Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Lorde and Britney Spears. Not for the feint-hearted, she takes the mickey out of music in a way that leaves you not only laughing from start to finish, but nodding in agreement and wondering why no one thought of this before.
Joined by Green Room Award-nominated actor and singer Lyall Brooks – to add some extra spice to the show, SuperGirly will have you screaming, laughing and wincing all at the same time.
Lulu McClatchly is an actress, writer, singer and comedian. Known around the globe for her larger than life alter ego ‘SuperGirly’, Lulu considers this character the one that gave her the big break on to the international stage.
Lulu first started making her mark in the UK by writing and performing her SuperGirly live show taking the Edinburgh Festival by storm before embarking on a string of UK tours including a stint in the West End where she sold out night after night.
She was invited to perform at the Just for Laughs Festival Gala in Montreal in July 2001 alongside Megan Mullally (‘Karen’ from Will and Grace). Lulu was also personally requested to support Sir Elton John on the Australian leg of his 2002 World Tour.
After a string of TV shows in the UK, including her own BBC sitcom, Lulu decided to return to Australia to try and conquer her home turf. She landed a memorable role as the wrestling love interest of Toadie, (Genevieve ‘Eva’ Doyle on Neighbours). Then went on to guest star in numerous shows including Blue Heelers and Spicks and Specks.
She broke into the international film industry when she played the light-hearted role of ‘Bonnie’ in Fox studios’ Aquamarine, and then went on to co-star in the Australian ABC TV movie Valentine’s Day, playing the footy loving, drum playing, Barassi. Her most memorable role to date is playing the politically incorrect Cassandra Downie in the SBS comedy musical Bogan Pride, a role she considers one of her all time favourites.
Featuring new material written by Lulu, SuperGirly: Return of the Pop Princess marks SuperGirly’s debut theatre season in Australia. The two-act, two-hour all-out assault on the world of pop music is guaranteed to do what she does best – keep people laughing.
