What happens when Annie the Orphan, a cannibal (non-derogatory) and the entire Newtown Under 25’s netball team walk into a bar?

This year, fresh off their Green Room award win, the queer comedy duo Mel & Sam are BACK in Sydney to bring you ‘HIGH PONY’ - their most chaotic hour of original musical sketch comedy yet. After sold-out, pussy-popping tours of ‘Shit-Wrecked!’ and ‘No Hat No Play! The Cabaret’, Mel & Sam are telling you to sit down, shut up and get readyyyy for them to yank you by your ponytail through this fever dream of a cabaret show that critics are saying is the show worthy of crowning the girls “Australia’s new Queens of comedy” (AUSTRALIAN ARTS REVIEW).

They’ve got their madonna mics cranked to full volume. They’ve got characters that absolutely do NOT need a solo musical theatre ballad (Angela Anaconda, we’re looking at you - you greyscale bitch!) and they’ve got synth lines so dirty it will make you want to take your clothes off and call your ex-girlfriend.

Featuring an all-original soundtrack with songs including ‘Don’t Eat Meat, Eat Your Friends’, ‘Babies Are Cancelled’, ‘Lesbians Don’t Get The Ick, And That’s Science!’ and many more, this is Mel & Sam like you’ve never seen them before ... and there’ll be no fly aways tonight, boys.

This is high concept. High art. High pony.
