Tight Mums, Loose Units

After smashing Melbourne International Comedy Festival, with sold out shows and an encore performance, the Tight Mums bring their milkshakes to Melbourne Fringe Festival Hub at Trades Hall. A smorgasbord of stand-up comedy and song, four hot multi-cultural mammas give it to you straight with a hilarious spin on marriage, motherhood, divorce and dating.

Two happily married, two happily divorced gals from diverse cultures, they feel the pressures placed on women to be perfect wives and mothers – tightly wound, tight friends, tight bodies. But when they hit the stage, they’re loose units!
