Comedy Queen, Queenie van de Zandt goes back to her Netherlands at Brisbane Comedy Festival 2019!
Since unleashing alter-ego Jan van de Stool at the Brisbane Cabaret Festival in 2004, Queenie’s Dutch-born “musical therapist” has become one of the greatest cult comedy acts in Australia, touring festivals nationally and reaching the semi-finals on television juggernaut Australia’s Got Talent.
Next month, Australia’s favourite self-help guru (self-appointed) will conjure the laughs in a one-woman exposé: Jan van de Stool in PARTING THE RED CURTAINS.
“I’m inviting all ...

Single Asian Female Theatre Review
The laughter it generates makes one look inside to the prejudices that must be overcome in all their absurdity and backwardness. It plays with the acceptance of stereotypes with a wit about itself that puts humour first to make the message more effective. Nobody really learns from shouting.
Rapid fire dialogue peppered with current jargon and the occasional f-bomb gives momentum while a clever set design reinforces visual purpose. The story revolves around family and fortune, some good, ...

Stan & Ollie Movie Review
This bittersweet tale is set in the latter part of their careers as they tour England after World War II. It shows two men that were creative partners for most of their adult lives but never really communicated in words or deeds their true feelings for each other.

Win a double pass to Sometimes Always Never starring Bill Nighy!

Years later, Alan and his other son Peter (Sam Riley, Maleficent) continue the search while trying to repair their own strained relationship.

If Beale Street Could Talk Movie Review
Set in seventies America, Alonzo 'Fonny' Hunt (Stephan James), a man of colour is falsely accused of rape and get chewed up by the system. It’s a slow grind for both the incarcerated and the viewer. Even the love and effort of both of his families, his and hers, cannot sway the outcome.
Filmed with subdued colour pallets and dimly lit scenes, we see the affection that Fonny feels for Clementine ‘Tish’ Rivers (KiKi Layne) but their young love is anything but ...
