F.A.A.G: Footballers Are A Godsend

After a sold out season at Melbourne Fringe Festival, Samuel Roberts is returning to the stage to kick a whole lot of goals in this stitch-inducing cabaret.

Leaping out of the closet after 20+ years of playing Aussie Rules Football in the local community, Samuel tells all of the best and worst times of his journey trying to find his place in a sport-filled, testosterone-packed, majorly-heterosexual world.

Torpedoing himself into the cabaret scene with his “natural ability to banter with the audience" and "clever balance of poignancy and ... wit", join in the chorus as Sam performs pop covers and original songs through his journey to discover the first Gay AFL footballer.

So listen up you maggots! Strap on your boots, pull up your socks and lube yourselves up with deep heat and vegetable oil, because Samuel has a tale to tell about Australia's most beloved sport; and it might not be what you expect.

Now go out there and stick it up em’!
