GREG BEHRENDT (USA)
A brilliant, lifelong comedian who accidentally became co-author of the inescapable bestseller He’s Just Not That Into You, Greg Behrendt should be known for many things, yet he is singularly recognised worldwide as ‘That Guy From That Thing!’ He was the host of the weirdly-named Greg Behrendt Show, and acclaimed podcast Walking The Room. Greg returns to Melbourne with his signature hilarious commentary on relationships and life.

Award winning character Beau Heartbreaker is back.
Packed with hilarious tales of worldly adventures & brilliantly composed songs, this
seasoned performers astonishing vocal ability & depth & sincerity as character Beau
Heartbreaker is remarkably convincing.
Oh, & heʼs a bloody nice bloke too.
After some signiﬁcant time away from the stage, Selina Jenkins anticipated return as
widely loved character Beau Heartbreaker has not gone unnoticed.
Beau may be returning with guitar in hand & the same intoxicating smile heʼs always had,
but his striking facial hair is not the only thing thatʼs changed & matured.
It doesnʼt take long for the intricacies of this character to emerge. The experiences &
challenges heʼs faced since we last shared a yarn with him have left their mark.
Beau has grown into a man of real substance. Somebody you’d be proud to call your
brother, son or friend.
No small feat for a woman in a beard, but one this artist has worked tirelessly to achieve.
