In 2020 & 2021 the world stopped spinning. The sh*t hit the fan and there was no toilet paper to clean it up. 

And we were all sent to our rooms. 

Me? I’d been in physical lockdown, sexually that is, for most of my life. Then I got married and made up for lost time. I don’t wanna brag,  but my hot husband Shane Bradley Cooper and I clocked up a lot of ‘Rooting Frequent Flyer’ points. Hello? I went from Bronze to Platinum in nine months.

But thank God we're all finally out.  Out of the house. Out of the pantry. Out of the fridge.  Seriously it was so bad I thought about writing a COVID memoir called ‘Eat, Pray, Eat.’

Right now we need a good laugh more than anything. 

Come and see my new stage show, ‘Better Out, Than In.’

And let me lift youse up where youse belong!

Effie is a working-class cultural icon and Logie Award winning legend who has been in our hearts and homes for over 3 decades.  Star of the phenomenally successful stage show ‘Wogs out of Work’ and smash TV shows ‘Acropolis Now’, ‘Effie: Just Quietly’ and ‘Greeks on the Roof’.  She’s the author of ‘Effie’s Guide to Being Upyourself’ and the star of the critically acclaimed one-woman show ‘Effie the Virgin Bride’ as well as the stage show ‘Star Wogs – The Ethnics Strike Back’.
