Tania Lacy, one of Australia’s dearly loved funny women is back and joined Wendy from “Friends With Wendy and Pete” live in the studio to talk about all things funny, while she desperately tries to find the "roses", moments in all that life dishes out.
Tania talked about her new show ‘Everything’s Coming Up Roses’, on tour in 2023 and this time around, everything’s coming up roses! After surviving six years in Berlin with those crazy Germans, getting through menopause without spontaneously combusting and raising a teenage boy with her husband of 22 years, she’s convinced the worst is behind her Bahahahaha!
‘Everything’s Coming Up Roses’ covers everything from clown porn to hair curtains, yobbo birds to happy endings, Tania is relentless in her desire to find the 'roses' moments in all life dishes out. You can see it in Cairns on 24 February and then at Adelaide Fringe, Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Sydney Comedy Festival and watch this space for Townsville’s North Australian Festival of Arts (NAFA) and Edinburgh Festival dates.
Tania’s career sounds like a breathless jump from one fortuitous opportunity to another. As a student at the prestigious Victorian College of the Arts School of Dance, her hopes of being a classical ballerina were dashed by a cruel injury, but not so long after she was choreographing and dancing with Kylie Minogue in the ‘Locomotion’ film clip. Molly Meldrum spotted her dancing on ‘Countdown’ and on a whim, had her open the show. A producer called asking her to audition for a new show, ‘The Factory’ and it made her a household name. Then came ‘Countdown Revolution’, award-winning short films, stand-up, and acting. Tania has also written for film and television and has two novels on the shelves, more information here. Tania currently resides in Cairns with her husband and son and is studying law.
Tania believes her rather unusual career trajectory has given her a unique view of the world and taught her anything is possible. 'Once the 'enfant terrible' of Aussie TV, Tania became 'enfant unemployable' for being too mouthy. Fortunately for Tania, women are quite 'in' right now, so she's decided she can be enfant 'anything she f*%*ing wants'.
