FOMO: The Fear of Missing Out

Event Details

A Melbourne International Comedy Festival event presented by Darebin Arts Speakeasy.

One woman, ten characters and a radio studio, Zoe McDonald has the FOMO, aka the fear of missing out!

A member of Present Tense, the dynamic theatre making ensemble behind Chants des Catacombes and Margaret Fulton: Queen of the Dessert, McDonald portrays a parade of radio talkback callers, guests and a one-time famous announcer.

'It’s tempting to think of McDonald as a member of the Fast Forward team born a generation too late' The Age.

'McDonald embodies each of these different personalities with such precise and perfect physicality
and mannerism that she can evoke uproarious laughter with just the tilt of her head. Her energy seems truly boundless as she swaps between the large cast non-stop for the entire show!'

After a swag of rave reviews and an award for her Melbourne Fringe debut, FOMO returns to Melbourne fresh from a stellar season at the Adelaide Fringe, under the direction of Present Tense artistic directors Bryce Ives and Nathan Gilkes

'FOMO is a deeply engaging, rewarding and unbelievably hilarious show' Aussie Theatre.
