Event description

Description

Melissa McGlensey is tackling the dumpster fire of daily news from her home country in the only way she knows how – through comedy.

The American writer and comedian shows off her signature mix of politics, satire and comedy in The Briefing, her debut solo show. Part comedic press briefing, part character stand-up, and part improvised Q&A session, The Briefing is a sendup of American government centring around one of the Trump Administration’s most lampoonable characters -- Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

Join Mrs. Sanders on the Australian leg of her global propaganda tour for an evening of political theatre, partisan nonsense and dark humour. Don’t forget to bring your questions!

“This is a brilliant example of political comedy. Much better than anything produced by SNL.” - Squirrel Comedy

“McGlensey’s impersonation of the southern accent is pitch perfect and the bizarre nature of this formidable character is evoked in phenomenal fashion.“ - Stage Whispers

“If you’re interested in US politics and looking for a laugh, this should be in your calendar.“ - Beat

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

The Butterfly Club is a licensed venue. Accordingly, patrons under 18 are only allowed on premises in the company of a parent or legal guardian.

What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

We strongly encourage using public transport. The Butterfly Club is a short stroll from Flinders Street station and Melbourne Central, and an even shorter stroll from any tram that travels through Swanston or Collins Streets (get off at Town Hall).

If driving, you can find the best parking rates in the area by visiting carparking.info (link opens in a new window).

How can I contact the venue with any questions?

Please call The Butterfly Club on 03 9663 8107 or visit our box office (the first room as you enter the Club) from 5pm to 8:30pm Monday to Saturday.

What's the refund policy?

There are no refunds or exchanges. Exceptions are made in extraordinary circumstances at the Club's discretion: if there is a sensible reason why you should receive a refund, please contact us and we'll be happy to discuss.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

No. We have a full record of all attendees and will be able to let you in whether you bring a printed copy of your ticket or not.

Is it ok if the name on my ticket or registration doesn't match the person who attends?

Yes.
