Hobart Festival of Comedy Presents
Geraldine Hickey — Don't Tease Me About My Gloves
The endlessly funny storyteller weaves new yarns about the last year, including the recent need to wear gloves all the time. May include some passionate yelling. As seen on the 2023 Melbourne Comedy Festival Gala and Thank God You’re Here.
I now wear gloves when it’s not cold enough to warrant wearing gloves because I have a thing called Raynaud’s Disease/Phenomenon/Syndrome. I had never heard of it, and not many other people have.
This show is just an opportunity to explain what Raynaud’s is to as many people at once, because doing it individually is a pain. Also, I’ll talk about other things I’ve had going on in the last year. Might yell a bit, in a passionate way, could you imagine me being aggressive?
