BY NICK ALDRICHSydney’s most adored queer ‘kween’ of comedy, Cleo, is back and this time set to take the Sydney Fringe Comedy Festival by storm.
Queerly Beloved, the apt name of Cleo’s first-ever solo show and highly anticipated Sydney Fringe Comedy Festival performance, looks to explore the concept of ‘normality’ through uproariously comedic stand-up and storytelling. In a light-hearted hour of comedy, the show ultimately looks to demonstrate that we’re all just ‘Queerdos’ trying to fit in.
When asked the motive behind the show, Cleo explained,
“Normality has always been a measuring stick in which people have judged me throughout my life, though it’s definitely not a unique experience to me. I wanted to create a fun space where all people could both resonate and laugh at the universal feeling of not fitting in, because whether you’re LGBTI+ or not, everyone fears being ‘othered’, different or abnormal.”
We’re certainly not going to deny it, the Gay’s Guide team are 100% obsessed with Cleo’s amazing style of comedy. It’s original, down-to-earth, somewhat self-deprecating and of course, truly hilarious.
Cleo is most recently known for the hilarious queer comedy show, ‘Kweens of Comedy‘, and is also well-known within the LGBTQI+ community as an incredible advocate for LGBTQI+ rights.
