Isis Town and Country - - Front Page -

THE bril­liant and hi­lar­i­ous com­edy by Liz Sk­itch per­formed at the Paragon Theatre last Fri­day night.

Her new show Spoilt is on the road and she is tour­ing Aus­tralia with her young fam­ily.

The one woman, five char­ac­ter show kept the au­di­ence in stitches.

Sk­itch took her stand up to the next level by tak­ing her style to the au­di­ence.

From the start, Sk­itch en­cour­aged au­di­ence par­tic­i­pa­tion, drag­ging un­ex­pected au­di­ence mem­bers onto the stage.

Her abil­ity to mimic and im­merse her­self into the char­ac­ters was amaz­ing.

Fiona Scott-Nor­man was the pro­ducer of Spoilt. Sk­itch said it’s amaz­ing to be per­form­ing at the Paragon.

“The theatre is beau­ti­ful and Childers are lucky to have a venue like this,” Ms Sk­itch said.

Sk­itch has been per­form­ing com­edy for more than 16 years and played at the 2014 Mel­bourne Com­edy Fes­ti­val.

Her char­ac­ters are re­lat­able and with a swap of a wig and a change of shoes she be­comes an­other per­son.

Sk­itch re­ceived a stand­ing ova­tion from the au­di­ence and the hum­ble co­me­dian spent time tak­ing self­ies and group pho­tos af­ter the show.

Mrs Sandy John­son from Bund­aberg said Spoilt was hi­lar­i­ous, her char­ac­ters are so re­lat­able.

“We had the best night out, thanks to the bus ser­vice it was per­fect,” she said.

Mrs Lynda Cre­mer said it was bet­ter than ex­pected: “I have a cousin and she is just like the char­ac­ter Sue.”

The girls from Bund­aberg were all ex­cited and in stiches af­ter the show.

“I have never been to the Paragon and I had a great time,” she said.

Childers’ own Troy Ma­dle and Scott St­ed­man were two of the lucky few to be­come part of the show.

Mr Ma­dle per­formed his best im­pres­sion of a New Idea jour­nal­ist and for Mr St­ed­man, he show­cased his tal­ents as the hard work­ing as­sis­tant (Roger) to the wed­ding plan­ner Sue.

“I had a great night out and the show was hi­lar­i­ous,” Mr Ma­dle said.
