The Desperettes

A Guide to Being a Wingman

Too long have the secrets of being a wingman been guarded by hetero men. Well not anymore! The Desperettes are girls dressed as boys, using these techniques for picking up while wearing giant pink beehives.

Do you know how to avoid a “clitterference” scenario? Are you sure you know all THE best pick up lines? Are you REALLY happy spooning your pillow alone each night?

After sell out seasons at Perth Fringe and Edinburgh Fringe festival The Desperettes are back on their quest to pick up the D.

Join Daisy (Belinda Hanne Reid), DeeDee (Natasha York) and Delilah (Lisa Woodbrook) in a hilarious night out as they learn the techniques for being a Wingman. In this comedy cabaret, expect sharp wit and tight three-part harmonies as these girls defy gender while singing (and sometimes rapping) a huge soundtrack of pop hits, including Destiny’s Child, Justin Timberlake and Salt’n’Pepa!

Gasworks Arts Park in partnership with The Village Festival will transform the park into a magical Midsumma hub so you can linger longer to enjoy all the festivities. Take selfies with the giant inflatable rainbow, and wander around the park to enjoy the bar-and-lounge, Cuddle Puddle, 10 Minute Dance Party Caravan, Penny Candy Sideshow and more.

Contains adult themes. Recommended over 18 only.
