The entertainer will showcase her comedy cabaret The Really Real Housewife of Surfers Paradise at the festival and aims to show southerners the decadence and dilemmas of the upper echelons of the sunshine state society.
Lisa La Celle says she is looking forward to introducing Adelaide to the trials and tribulations of her cringe worthy alter ego, Mercedes DeLuca-Jones, and her life of glamour and glory – Surfers Paradise style.
“We all know southerners enjoy a get-away to the Gold Coast to bask in the sunshine and the glamour but Mercedes will give them a taste of what it’s like to live that lifestyle,” Lisa said.
This is Lisa’s first time performing at the Adelaide festival, with her event taking place from 16 to 18 February, and 21 to 25 February, at popular nightclub La Boheme.
In the show, Mercedes offers her sage advice on marriage, motherhood, cosmetic surgery, toyboys and of course being a reality television “mega star” all while exploring every avenue of her abundant assets to become the next Really Real Housewife of Surfers Paradise.
Lisa says she is more than excited to be performing at one of the nation’s biggest arts and comedy events. “I’m 45 years old, I’m a mum with two kids, I don’t have time to muck around because the clock is ticking, which is why I am so happy to have received such great reviews for my first cabaret show and now to be off to Adelaide is a dream come true,” Lisa said.
The performances received raving reviews from the likes of Katy Cotter of XS Entertainment and Meredith Walker of Blue Curtains Brisbane who found the show both entertaining and hilarious.
Lisa La Celle is an all-round entertainer – a vocalist, comedienne and Master of Ceremonies. Her career spans 30 years covering musical theatre, cabaret and comedy.
