Julia Morris – Lift and Separate

See Julie Morris live at the Convention Centre on 3rd June for a delicious and raucous romp through the last 2 years, complete with a dissension into general madness and finding her way back. As a woman in her extreme 30’s, Julia will deliver her signature full tilt, high octane stand up storytelling, leading directly to what Julia calls ‘hurty tummy laughter’. It’s trying to make sense of day to day life while attempting to actually Lift and Separate.
