“Fans of Tom Lehrer or Tim Minchin will be right at home here”
(Australian Arts Review)

How do women survive in a man’s world? Allow Alice and Ned to mansplain. 

Following a sold out season at Melbourne International Comedy Festival, award winning duo, Alice Tovey and Ned Dixon are back to rewritie the man-ual with their exciting new show, Mansplaining. Tickets available from Melbourne Fringe Festival.

With their iconic razor-sharp humour and unforgettable original songs, “operatic rock goddess” (Aussie Theatre) Alice Tovey and powerhouse composer Ned Dixon take audiences on a journey of masculinity, misogyny and the millennial man. 

Songs such as ‘Mansplaination’ and ‘I’m not racist…I just say racist things’ are layered in meaning and hilarious in execution. A mixed media presentation of music, voice, kazoos, and sock puppets, Mansplaining is a “confident, proud and bright” (Herald Sun) production that embodies the “Feminist, political and brilliantly cynical” (The Australian) style Tovey and Dixon are renowned for.
