Named ‘Female Comedian of the Decade’ at the 2010 NZ Comedy Guild Awards, Michele A’Court is a professional stand-up comedian and writer. She is a regular guest on TV and radio, including TV3's award-winning comedy show ‘7 Days’ and Jim Mora’s, ‘The Panel’, on Radio NZ National.

Now, Michele A’Court will be appearing for one night only at the Bruce Mason Centre, on Wednesday 15 April, at 7.30pm. Adapted from her sell-out, solo comedy show and riffing on the theme of her memoir, Stuff I Forgot to Tell My Daughter, Michele A’Court will entertain with her signature wit, warmth and wisdom.

Liberated from the daily grind after her daughter left home, Michele A'Court suddenly found the time she'd never had as a parent – to think about being a parent. Mostly, she spent the time wondering if she'd told her daughter everything she needed to know – such as how to store ginger, calculate GST, stop your tights snagging, the meaning of feminism ... that sort of thing.

"When I speak at school and university graduations,” says Michele, “I tell other people's kids all kinds of important things about work and life and relationships. And then I'd go home and tell my daughter how to hold her fork properly. So I started making a list. A list of all the things I had forgotten to tell my daughter. Because often we're so busy telling our kids to sit up straight and do their homework we forget to talk to them about the Big Things – social activism, finding your tribe, the power of youth.”

That list became a hit solo comedy show. And then the list kept getting longer. So now it has become a book, Stuff I Forgot to Tell My Daughter, to be published by HarperCollins NZ in April 2015. A funny, wise, honest and maybe even useful book.

Introduced by high-profile journalist and publisher, Finlay Macdonald, Michele A’ Court offers her own, unique take on motherhood. Just in time for Mother’s Day.
