Harpur's Bizarre and Hair of the Dog Presents 

Sarah Harpur

Pants are for Losers and Other Theories


Sarah Harpur has heaps of theories:

Theory one: Pants are for losers.

Theory two: Firefighters are over-diversifying their skill set.

Theory three: Whales should stop whinging and grow some legs.

Evolution. Revolution. Cancer The Musical. Harpur’s Bizarre! Sarah Harpur has performed her delightfully macabre comedy at the New Zealand, Adelaide and Edinburgh Fringe Festivals. Sarah is sometimes brilliant, often silly, always bizarre.

Fresh, fun and quirky. Thoroughly enjoyed it.
Sarah Harpur isn’t any ordinary comedienne. Previous shows have contained such brilliant musical numbers covering anything from celebrating/mocking a friends 40th birthday and the Dead Dad’s Club. Her latest show, Pants are for Losers, doesn’t disappoint.
While the shows structure is more formulaic - a presentation of ‘scientific thesis’ - the subjects covered are anything but. No subject is taboo - Hitler and Socrates make the powerpoint, as does a Venn diagram of the universe (apparently it’s hard to show infinity in a Venn diagram), racist pets, the sh*t kid, biology, philosophy - she’s got it all covered!
Sarah’s enthusiasm is infectious and her delivery doesn’t patronise the audience. She won’t spell out the punchline for you, but she will give you a chance to catch up. There’s a subversive intelligence to her comedy, which could easily be missed by a casual observer. I find myself still giggling about some parts of her show days later (gobble!).
I loved this so much.
We're going again on Saturday.
Weird and VERY silly.
Just refreshing to see something different.
