Michelle Brasier: Reform

Mick Perrin Worldwide present

Winner: Directors' Choice Award, Sydney Comedy Festival (2021).
Nominee: Most Outstanding Show, Melbourne International Comedy Festival (2021).

Have you ever ended up being the emergency contact for a stranger who tried to scam you out of your money? No? Michelle has.

This is a true story of an online scam, but it’s not one whereby the witty comic takes down the swindler and gives him a telling off through the medium of jokes. Oh no. When the exercise equipment didn’t show up, Michelle didn’t call the police, instead she gave her scammer the opportunity to open up. Curious as to how a person ends up a scammer, Michelle, a stand-out archetype of the ‘caring woman’ took an active interest in Jacob who was surprised at how much he really just needed someone to talk to.
