Kate Hanley Corley

Bad Mother

Coopers Inn - The Young Henry’s Room

After creating a scandal at last year’s Melbourne Fringe Festival Kate Hanley Corley comes out from behind her masks (Fanny Bouffante, Aisha the Geisha, South Yarra Mum) to be herself, a Bad Mother – the tale of a woman on the verge of a nervous breakdance.

In Bad Mother, Kate Hanley Corley talks about how she wishes she was not tasked with the spiritual, emotional, psychological and physical well-being of her kids … because to be frank, she really is NOT qualified!

If your baby sometimes drops out of your pram because you’re too busy posting Instagram updates, you use the Casino Carpark as a temporary creche and you look forward to a colonoscopy for some peace and quiet - then chances are you’ll love Bad Mother, because like you, she’s not just bad, she’s appalling.

Also known as the creator of the Enjo-inspired growsuit the “Crawl N’Clean” Kate Hanley Corley draws from 15 years of badmotherhood finding humour where others find tragedy.

Last year Kate Hanley Corley’s Melbourne International Comedy Festival show Scandals starring French snob Fanny Bouffante received 4 stars and successfully toured throughout Victoria, NSW and ACT to sellout crowds.

Kate once again teams up with her favourite collaborators; mentor Edwina Exton and composer Emma Hart to bring a hilarious 50 minutes of continence-challenging content including original songs I Wanna Be A Mum in the Seventies and My Ob.

Join Kate in celebrating doing a dreadful job at the most important job in the world – parenthood!
