Bonnie Tangey is an enigma. Comedian, Scientist, Raw Comedy 2017 Runner-up, star of the screen (ABC Comedy Up Late, Tonightly with Tom Ballard), lab-grown meat enthusiast.

Bonnie’s Melbourne International Comedy Festival debut, Lab Meat, is about her day job as a scientist developing lab-grown meat. What is that? It’s meat grown entirely outside of an animal’s body using animal cells rather than whole animals, of course.

Lab-grown meat promises to save animals and the environment, but can lab meat really save the planet? Wouldn’t it be better for scientists to clone David Attenborough? Clone and eat David Attenborough? Who knows? Bonnie might.

“Dry and delightfully kooky…she’s here to do something very different.” - Herald Sun
“She's in cracking good form… Strongly recommend.” - Daily Review
“Absolutely hilarious.” - Squirrel Comedy
“Blunt and sarcastic and I loved it… A master of the iconic punchline.” - Yak Media
“One of the stand-outs of the final, having the most distinctive approach to both writing and performance… There’s a slightly disquieting edge to this initially winsome personality, which adds an intriguing touch of grit.” - Chortle
