Fresh from the state finals of RAW Comedy, Melbourne's favourite gay comedy power couple, Colwyn Buckland and Filip Lescaut are back with the third instalment of their sketch extravaganza, Woah, Alyssa! 3, premiering as part of the Melbourne International Comedy Festival.
Woah, Alyssa! 2 was the smash hit of MICF 2019, and this year Col and Fil have taken their sketch game to a new level, working with director Mark Bonanno (of award winning comedy collective Aunty Donna) to fine tune their funnies.
"I first saw Woah, Alyssa! at the RAW comedy pre-lim finals and thought they were definitely an act to watch out for. But when I saw their 2019 MICF show, I knew they were the next big thing in comedy. Their unique, subversive and unquestionably hysterical point of view is unlike anything I have ever seen in sketch. When they asked me to direct their show, I was honored. I can't wait to start collaborating with Col and Fil," says Mark.
Woah, Alyssa! have their own, one-of-a-kind style of alternative sketch humour and deliver fearless social critique and inclusive pop culture references. Col and Fil will lip synch for your late night LOLS with bad wigs, weird sexy satire and original songs that will make straight people scream "yass!" and queer people yell "carn the footy!"
Inseparable for five years, and performing together for three, Col and Fil bring their mutual love of all things sketchy to MICF audiences and have a special passion for both working together and playing together.
"We're so excited to be debuting our new show at the Town Hall. It's got something for everyone, from the guys who take PrEP every morning, to the women they goss with at the water cooler, to the boyfriends they drag along who end up surprise loving it! Also grandmas. To brag, we've always been really good but with Mark's help we might just be the queens of the festival!" said Col and Fil in unison.
See the show that Melbourne comedians are buzzing about, and help Woah, Alyssa! to fulfill their mission - milking being gay for money and attention.
The show goes for 50 fantastic minutes.
