An authentic cabaret rollicking in the everyday experiences of what it means to be an adult.

An auto-biographical comedy cabaret based on the not so adult life experiences of award-winning performer Tash York. In a world faced with social media and the influence of our community around us there seems to be a common thread that everyone has to be seen as “doing it right”. “Adulting” aims to break down these barriers and finds relatable stories that translate to any age group touching on issues of fertility, career outlook, financial stability and the risks in what it takes to dream. Coloured with popular music and truly affecting stories from York’s own life experiences the audience is brought into the conversation that we are part of a world with many possibilities and exceptions to the rule. The work is high quality, entertaining and extremely heartfelt.

With her wine-loving antics and witty repartee, Tash York is a singer, improviser, cabaret performer, MC and….. balloon twister! Known for her ballsy voice, dynamic energy and an uncanny ability to rap on command, Tash “is a phenomenal performer, charismatic and courageous”(Theatre People).

The master of bawdy fun, she has received huge success touring with her award-winning comedy cabaret "These Things Take Wine" which was runner-up for Best Cabaret at Fringe World 2016. She created and performs with the pink beehived trio The Desperettes who are also at this Adelaide Fringe with their hit show “A Guide to Being a Wingman”.

Tash has performed cabaret and musical-improv (Impromptunes) to sold-out audiences at Perth Fringe World, Adelaide Fringe, Edinburgh Fringe, Melbourne Cabaret Festival, Ballarat Cabaret Festival, Brisbane Wonderland Festival and Melbourne International Comedy Festival.

With her matchless brand of comedy-cabaret, Tash York is full of exuberance, outrageous behaviour and probably a glass (or 10) of wine to boot!

“Mistress of Ceremonies, Tash York, had the requisite charm, strong voice and personality to get the audience excited” - Weekend Notes “Natasha York, one of Melbourne’s great cabaret artists” –We Know Melbourne
