Award Winning Comic Flushes Out Her Demons for An Hour of Comedy Gold!

Felicity Ward
What If There Is No Toilet?

Multi-award winning Australian stand-up comedian, writer, and actor Felicity Ward returns to NZ with a new stand-up show about mental illness, irritable bowel syndrome and her search for the nearest toilet. The deeply personal and outrageously funny What If There Is No Toilet? plays at the Herald Theatre, Aotea Centre, in Auckland from Tuesday 26 – Saturday 30 April, and at San Fran in Wellington on Sunday 1 May as part of the NZ International Comedy Festival powered by Flick Electric Co.
In the six years since Felicity last performed in NZ, she’s stormed the international stage touring numerous solo shows across Australia, Europe and the USA. She has won a number of major comedy awards in Australia including Best Show at both the Sydney and Perth Comedy Festivals, and appeared on numerous television shows including The BBC’s The John Bishop Show and Russell Howard's Good News; and on popular Aussie shows Thank God You’re Here, Good News Week, The Ronnie Johns Half Hour and various TV comedy galas. On the big screen, she played the quirky Lizzie in cult UK comedy hit The Inbetweeners 2 and co-starred in Australian feature film Any Questions for Ben?
What If There Is No Toilet? was written after her Australian documentary on mental health, Felicity’s Mental Mission, was aired on the ABC in 2014. In What If There Is No Toilet? Felicity delves deep and funny into her depression, anxiety, a lame attempt at self-harm, and her longest running relationship: with the toilet.
“This show has been a non-stop romp of connecting with people who thought they were weird. Turns out, there are heaps of us! People with IBS, depression, anxiety…This is not a Debbie Downer show. I don't get better. I just wrote some jokes about it, and it's a lovely way to enjoy being part of a mentally ill community, or to come and see what it is to be mentally ill, in a funny way” says Ward.
