As seen on the Melbourne Comedy Festival Gala 2021. Singer, songwriter and comedian Jude Perl presents a historically accurate (*citation needed) show, which begs the age old question – why does school suck so much?

Is it the compulsory sporting events? One size fits all grading methods? Maintaining your precarious position in a volatile social food chain? Or is it just the arbitrary bullying?

Celebrating the release of her sizzling hot new album, and delivered with her signature high-energy, high-awkward, musical story telling, Jude explores confrontation through the ages (her ages).

Winner of three Green Room Awards for Best Original Songs

Winner of Best Cabaret Melbourne Fringe 2018

Winner of 129 Participation Awards since 1995
