"Last time I performed there I went on stage dressed as a Scotsman to
break a box full of asbestos only to be outshone by a woman
lip-synching along to Judas Priest’s Breaking the Law with her vagina." From a rather comprehensive history of us written by the beautiful Thomas Henning, full article here.
A riot of fun is how I must describe my first time at the Last Tuesday Society, a theatre, music and comedy review show that had its first performance at Yah Yahs on 24 February. I’d been meaning to go for a while - it used to be held at the Old Bar, but it outgrew that venue and on its first night at Yah Yahs it easily filled the much larger space. Much of what happened is beyond explanation and some is beyond understanding, but it was all fantastic. Fitzroyalty - 9/03/2009 and Fitzroyalty - 9/11/09
"The Last Tuesday Society has been kicking along for a while now with (faintly) regular nights held at Fitzroy's Old Bar- though not always on the Last Tuesday of the month. It is appropriate to the loose nature of the night , which sees the confluence of a range of artists trying out new stuff. That's about as precise a description as you'll get. It's less a collective than a convergence of creative folk welcoming the change to play around with ideas. Given the spirit of the evenings, Melbourne Fringe has handed control of the Fringe Club to the the society for the next two Tuesdays, and punters will bear witness to unexpected guests and familiar Fringe faces letting it all hang out. We can't really promise what to expect since even the participants are usually surprised by the results. If anarchic DIY performance with a magpie aesthetic and the probability of accidents appeals to you, though, keep your Tuesdays free."

The Last Tuesday Society, "where creative risk-taking is not just
encouraged, but almost mandatory."

"When i went I got to see a lady sing out of her bum and her
vagina. I also got to see a mad scotsman smash a mysterious box filled
with what looked like anthrax, a singing squid, a guy with a high
pitched voice wearing a pizza box on his head and perhaps the most
forcibly charismatic host on the face of the planet." Tai Snaith, Artist and Curator.
