Michele A’court In Stuff I Forgot to Tell My Daughter
“Mum, how can I possibly thaw bread without electricity?”

Twenty-two years ago Michele had one of those things. You know. A daughter. In 2012, Holly moved out of home, got a job and went flatting.

Since then it became apparent to Michele that there were some gaps (ok, chasms) in Holly’s general knowledge. A few bits of stuff that she forgot to tell her. All sorts of things really - from how to store ginger, how to thaw bread without electricity, to explaining what feminism is. Whoops.

Without the child at home needing clean clothes, hot meals and a taxi service, Michele had some time to think about these things. The result is this show which debuted in 2013 and continues to be toured throughout New Zealand to critical acclaim.

“This show is simply fabulous. Being talented is one thing but it's not much use unless there's craft, experience and intelligence to back it up. Add supreme performer integrity and you have, well, you have Michele A'Court. She's the ultimate theatrical trickster… She has an armoury of comedic tools at her disposal that is second to none.” – Theatreview, Auckland 2013

“Michele A’Court’s new one-woman show is smart, inspiring and, most importantly, very funny.” – the Press, 2014

“Michele's comedy comes from both the head and the heart… We get to laugh, and think, and laugh some more.” – Theatreview, Wellington, 2013

“Energy just flows from her. Michele is a pro. She’s always been a pro, and as an audience member you feel comfortable knowing that whatever comes is going to be a good time.” – the Ruminator, Wellington 2013

In 2015, the show also became a book, published in 2015 by Harper Collins. It has been sitting comfortably on the NZ Bestseller lists since April, just behind all those ones about rugby, psychics and cooking.

Michele A’Court, voted Female Comedian of the Decade 2010 by the NZ Comedy Guild, is a vital part of the New Zealand comedy scene. In October 2015, Michele was presented with the Reilly Comedy Award by the Variety Artists Club of NZ. These are this country’s definitive variety entertainment awards, and the Reilly Award is presented to a performer who has achieved excellence in the field of comedy.

A regular on RNZ National’s The Panel and Nine-to-Noon, and a founding member of TV3’s topical comedy show 7 Days, Michele’s opinions and humour are highly sought after. She also has a number of regular writing commitments including a weekly opinion piece for Michele remains a current and relevant commentator on the way we are and just how funny the whole situation is.

There is a wide appeal for this show. For people who have had children, those who might have children, and those who have been children, it is a must see show. Michele is such an endearing performer who draws the audience in and leaves them beaming.
