Navigate the minefield of grief with award-winning comedian and long-time Dead Dads Club member, Sarah Harpur. Having a dead dad isn't all bad, there are pros as well as cons. Con: Dead dad, Pro: I don't have to be quiet during the rugby. Have you got a dead dad? Join the club! Or- is your dad immortal, but it's awkward around those whose dads aren't? There are plenty of reasons to be bummed out about having a dead dad. But for the duration of this show, we can make a conscious choice not to be. Dead Dads Club is about finding the funny side of grief with a mixture of storytelling, music, sketch and stand-up. Non-members welcome. Trigger Warning: may contain dead dads.

'Harpur's material is outstanding. It's complex, funny, rich in great jokes but it also deepens deceptively.' - Michael Gilchrist, Theatreview.

'I find this humour warm, razor-sharp witty, and free from nasty… Like a fresh lime juice margarita in a sea of flat beer, Harpur’s energy rises above the pack.' - Maryanne Cathro, Theatreview.
