Your MC this week is the impossibly handsome Nigel McRae. Appearing at this very special 165th Varietal will be:

Feature Act: Hey Harriet on their Nip Slip Tour.

Also on tour from Adelaide, Teenage Joans.

Canberra’s own David Bath and the Hot Tubs and…

A special guest appearance by Brickbat the Rock Bot, a two human, one robot, band.

Another Wednesday night, another night of exploring the unexpected further reaches of Canberra’s performing arts community. Smith’s Varietal is open to all comers. There’s no restrictions on genre, style, vulgarity, art form. We will accept virtually anything and anyone. Dance, origami, balancing acts, acrobats, sexual fantasists, impressionists, expressionists, depressionists, nappy boy wrestling, muscle man flexing, magicians, comedians, bonsai demonstrations, cheer girl/boys, burlesque.... Anything interesting, unusual, entertaining, humorous etc. etc. but not illegal and not degrading to the human spirit.
