Festival newcomer Penny Greenhalgh is ready to show off her spirited and semi-absurd comedy stylings with her debut solo show, Pop Pop. A hot mess of sketch, stand-up and ice dancing, this is Penny's first solo show since returning from the prestigious French clown school, Ecole Philippe Gaulier. Pop Pop takes the arena spectacular to new heights with a ridiculously small budget at the Forum Theatre, Pizza Room from Thursday 26 March until Sunday 19 April 2015 as part of the Melbourne International Comedy Festival.

Without the people power or the staging for an arena event, the audience helps do costume changes, stage mechanics, duets, radio plays and an explosive grand finale. Penny’s stunt double, Jacinta, makes an appearance, there’s crowd surfing and live music and actual pyrotechnics.

Pop Pop is very physical, very silly, a bit absurd and full of fun surprises. It’s a compilation of ideas and observations from one very tall girl with one very strange mind.

Penny Greenhalgh is an actor and comedian from Tumbarumba in southern NSW. She has appeared on the ABCs Hungry Beast, Wednesday Night Fever, The Hamster Wheel, and is a regular cast-member on The Checkout. Her brilliant eye for observation and razor sharp instincts for comedy caught the attention of The Chaser guys who snapped her up as part of the stable of comedians managed by their company.

Together with Zoe Kelly, she wrote and performed Zoe and Penny's Very Short Attention Span which sold out at the Sydney Fringe Festival in 2013 and was nominated for best comedy at the Sydney Fringe in 2010. Adelaide Fringe, Weekly Award Winner 2015.
