Fresh off a hot run at Sydney Fringe Comedy Festival 2023, Both Had Our Lives Ruined By The Same Genie is back!

Emma and Maddie both had their lives ruined by the same genie. Is the genie a metaphor? Probably. Blending stand up, character and musical comedy, this show is a celebration of all the wishes we never made.

Emma Leonard is an actor, comedian and writer you might recognise from TV’s 800 words, Home and Away, or online sketch comedy trio Frothpocalypse. She made her stand up debut on the Sydney scene in 2022 and performs regularly at Improv Theatre Sydney.

Maddie Stokes is a comedian, improviser and musical theatre performer who has appeared at the Factory Theatre numerous times with musical improv troupe, Unplanned Melodies. She is best known for her stand up appearances at Xavier College Ballina’s morning assembly 2009-2010.
