I’m sad that the Last Tuesday Society seems to have outgrown their second Fitzroy venue, Yah Yah’s, in 2009 after outgrowing the Old bar the previous year. I’m very pleased for them however that they continue to attract larger audiences to their performances.
Their last show for 2009, the second anal Christmas shambles at the Order of Melbourne, was packed and lots of fun, though it was not quite as consistently funny as the previous plagiarism show. The complications of performing on a different stage at a new venue, and more guest acts, reduced the rhythm and flow of the show, but it was still very enjoyable. I hope they return in 2010 with more fabulous shows.

Vigilantelope’s interpretation of the life of Mary was the best performance of the evening for me.
