Eight Songs in Eight Weeks - Cabaret Festival

The Ballarat Cabaret Festival 2017

The Lost Ones Basement Bar is proud to be supporting the Ballarat Cabaret Festival, 5th through to the 8th October 2017. These intimate events are sure to be a hit of the festival, as the performers are up close and personal in our hidden location.

Gillian Cosgriff is an award-winning musical comedian and Ballarat Cabaret Festival favourite. An extreme procrastinator, she set herself a challenge – to write one song a week for eight weeks. Each song had to be finished by midnight on Sunday of each week, and all of her progress/desperation was tracked on Twitter via #8songs8weeks.

Built under pressure, this show is a fascinating insight into comedy and songwriting,  and gives the audience insight into the creative process. Not only did Cosgriff come up with eight taut, funny, original songs, but she writes one new song live during the show.

One of the big hits of this year’s Melbourne Comedy Festival, this is an elegant, clever, and downright hilarious original show.
