One actor, one hour, one wedding, five spoilt women – an electric comedy masterpiece!
You are invited to the most tragically hilarious wedding ever staged. From the creator of Skitch Tease and direct from the Melbourne International Comedy Festival comes Liz Skitch’s critically acclaimed new solo show, Spoilt.
Worlds collide as the lives of a hapless bride-to-be, celebrity personal trainer, reality TV star, karaoke singing celebrant and caffé latte-sipping dog lover all come together climaxing in the most tragic and hilarious wedding reception ever staged.
Warning; this show may contain traces of Nutbush!
Spoilt will definitely contain occasional course language and sexual themes. It is a wedding after all. Liz Skitch is an acclaimed comedian, actor, writer and director. Specialising in clowning, she trained at the school of Philippe Gaulier in London.

“Simply ahhhh-mazing.” – Heckler
“Tour de force … Liz Skitch, step into the spotlight and take a bow.” – Weekend Notes
“Liz Skitch is a true master of impersonation and satire … if you’re into multiple wig changes, crazy brides and deluxe doggy doo doo, then this show’s for you!” – The Music
“Skitch is a natural mimic, shedding accents and years as easily as she changes costume.” – The Age Entertainment
“Playing five fabulous female characters, Skitch transforms herself before the eyes of the audience. Each character is defined only by the choice of wig, shoes and a few accoutrements … and Skitch’s impressive ability to change her entire physicality to match each character.” – Theatre People
