Musical comedy sensation Gillian Cosgriff brings her award-winning show, This Is Why We Can't Have Nice Things, to Sydney for the first time!

After the success of her debut show, Waitressing...and Other Things I Do Well, Gillian Cosgriff is doing less waitressing, and a lot more of the other things. These may include: drinking, procrastinating, voicemail messages, love, sex, dreams, humiliation, grammar, hangovers, and Band-Aids.

It's a show about trying to improve yourself, to become a better person, but constantly struggling against your true nature. Through her charming and funny original songs Gillian asks: How can you have nice things when your nature is to be clumsy and careless?

"...the woman is as talented as Tim Minchin.” – SBS Comedy
"...charming, funny and altogether likeable stuff.” – The Age
