Multi award winning comedian, Lori Bell brings us her comedy creation, Granny Flaps. This ukulele lady has sold out shows across Australia, toured with, ‘Puppetry of the Penis’, played at the ‘Big Day Out’ and even won a Fringe Award for ‘Granny Flaps – Opens Up’.  Flaps blends music, comedy, and a good dose of audience interaction to tell her stories of life, love and special little toy collection.


“Lori Bell is an exemplary comedian with a confident stage presence, a vast repertoire of jokes, and an infectious enthusiasm which allows her to bring the audience all the way along for the ride.”

“This is a professional show, the writing is tight, and Granny Flaps has a natural repartee with the audience. There were calls for an encore – always a good sign.”

“Even prudes will find themselves reviling in this Granny’s dirty little secrets, but be warned this card-carrying member of the blue rinse set has had decades to perfect the perverse.”
