A new show by Brent Thorpe

After a SOLD OUT season during Sydney World Pride 2023, DADDY is back. Brent Thorpe is 60, fit, dangerous and committed to ageing disgracefully. In the wake of Pride and Drag Story Time events being cancelled across Australia, DADDY is more than happy to give right wing conservatives exactly what they want. Just more of it than they ever bargained for.

This show celebrates how much fun getting older really is and as DADDY says, ‘You’re never too old to take a pill and dance on a podium wearing a jockstrap.’

"Thorpe is a well-educated and well-read individual... DADDY is an entertaining, humorous exploration of being of a certain age. Thorpe does this with the ultimate aim of love for his audience."
"He bursts out of backstage like a cum-filled cannonball ... a prophet of gay culture at its most camp and his deliberate, political embodiment of liberated excess is inspiring ... if it convinces just one person to get off Grindr and throw themselves into the night, it will have fulfilled its higher purpose."
