As seen on Russell Howard's Good News. **** (Scotsman). **** (Time Out). **** (Chortle.co.uk). **** (List). Winner: Perth/Sydney Comedy Festivals 2012. Nominee: Melbourne Comedy Festival and Adelaide Fringe 2012. This is a ridiculous job. Who else gets a round of applause before they even walk into their office? In this straight up stand-up show, Felicity Ward takes you through big intros, autotune, her love for junkies, the butchering of language, anxiety attacks, holding a duck and big finishes. She's putting her cards on the table and her dick on her sleeve. Is that how the saying goes?

Full press release
In 2012, Felicity Ward stole the hearts and the stars of the critics with her deeply personal but hilarious show The Hedgehog Dilemma. The critical acclaim arrived en mass and the outstanding reviews rolled in from start to finish.
But amongst the accolades, the self-congratulations and the tearstained Angus beef burgers, she realised that when it comes down to it, this is still a ridiculous job. Who else gets a round of applause before they even walk into their office? Who makes people pay for them before they've started work? Comedians! That's who. In this straight-up stand-up show, she takes you through big intros, autotune, her love for junkies, the butchering of language, anxiety attacks, holding a duck and big finishes. She's putting her cards on the table and her dick on her sleeve. Is that how the saying goes?
First seen on the Australian comedy scene in 2005 in Ten Network's popular sketch show The Ronnie Johns Half Hour, Felicity has since gone on to become one of Down-Under's favourite funny people, appearing in ABC's prominent music comedy quiz show Spicks and Specks, Thank God You're Here (Channel 7), Good News Week (Channel Ten) and has her own stand-up comedy special as part of ABC2's Warehouse Comedy. In 2008, she won Best Newcomer for the Melbourne Airport Award and has since been reeling in awards and nominations. 2012 was her year, with The Hedgehog Dilemma receiving a nomination, if not the award, at every major Australian festival.
She has toured internationally from London to LA to Hong Kong to Singapore, and last year co-starred in Working Dog Productions' (the makers of The Castle and The Dish) Australian comedy feature film Any Questions For Ben? In her brief time in the UK last year she appeared on Russell Howard's Good News (BBC Three) and from the Edinburgh Fringe was invited to perform The Hedgehog Dilemma in LA at the Hollywood Improv. Since then, she's appeared at many of her prestigious family barbeques.
