Jude Perl – I Have a Face

Jude Perl I Have a Face Bowery HERO web

In her award-winning show, I Have a Face, Melbourne based songwriter and comedian Jude Perl’s honest and hilarious discussion of mental health with a theatrical twist. Join her as she embarks on an adventure to solve all of our collective inner angst… With lots of bright colours! Dazzling sounds! And prizes!*

Ever wondered if you’re doing it right? Well did you read the label? Life didn’t come with a label, but you will be told your whole life how you should behave or who you should be. You will be told that if you have a problem, there’s a quick fix you can buy… but somehow the problem doesn’t ever seem to really go away. Jude Perl’s insight into her personal and relatable mental health struggles of being an adult, will make you want to sing along, cry and laugh all at once. Sometimes labels are super useful, particularly when you’re washing your fave jumper. But at other times, labels can halt your growth and suppress your very existence. Jude reminds us when to be aware of these labels, and when the labels are totally useless – and most importantly, that we are not alone. She’ll talk about some tough stuff, make you laugh and make you feel truly human.

*Metaphorical prizes.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “One of the most insanely clever, comical and talented comedians I may have ever stumbled across… It was the comedy show I had been dreaming about… Jude, you made me laugh, cry and then do that weird laugh-cry thing where you aren’t exactly sure what emotions you’re feeling but snot and tears are dribbling down your face yet you’re still laughing” – AUSSIE REVIEW
