Dubbo Fringe Fest will bring two of the states most epic comedians and friends Eddy Rockefeller and Lauren 'Loz' Budden to town for their back to back shows Who Let The Dyke Out and The Art of Falling In Love.
Rockefeller, who grew up in Narromine, will deliver a show reflecting on her hilariously terrible, but relatable, experiences with popular dating app Tinder and her overall 'dating fails'.
While Budden's show Who Let The Dyke Out reflects on her experiences coming out and her epic coming out story to Who Let The Dogs Out by Shaggy.
"I've been out for 20 years, this is my 20th year, so my show is about my coming out story basically, all the bits and pieces, the Homer Simpson moments I now look back on," Budden said.
"I came out on stage to Who Let The Dogs Out, so I changed dogs to dyke."
"The queer audience will get a lot out of the show, they can resonate with it, and I also seem to appeal to older women as well, because... I'm...an...older woman."
Budden said she's looking forward to bringing her show to Dubbo.
"[Dubbo's] great. The people there are really friendly and they genuinely want to be entertained."
Budden said for her the humour isn't something she switches on and off.
"For me, I don't switch off, I'm just a clown all the time, it's a bit different from just being an idiot to being a comedian," she said.
For Rockefeller coming back to the area will be a blast from the past.
"It's going to be so nostalgic going back, I'm going to visit the place where I grew up," she said.
"I've been doing comedy for about five years so my show is pretty much all the best bits put together- I talk about dating, relationships, failing at them, how stupid Tinder is...
"If you've been a young person in the dating world... this is the show for you. This is like, all of those moments where you're like yes...
"Even if you've had a terrible dating life then come to my show, I will make you feel way better about yours. I have so many women come up to me afterwards and go; I've had a guy do the exact same thing. It just feels like a comradery because everybody has a terrible dating story."
Both shows have had ample feedback following the Newcastle Fringe Festival earlier this year, having both been nominated for separate awards.
Who Let The Dyke Out has been nominated for Best Home Grown Talent, while The Art of Falling In Love had been nominated for Best Premiere Show.
Both shows will run back to back over three nights at the Pastoral Hotel kicking off from May 6 with Who Let The Dyke Out set to kick off first.
Tickets for both are available at www.123tix.com.au/events.
