Annabel Crabb

50 Odd Years of Crabb
17-18 May
BOOK

ABOUT THE SHOW

In a half-century, Annabel Crabb has been a farm hand, cookbook author, political correspondent, podcaster, mother, defendant, and intruder in political kitchens.

In her show, Crabb fires off 50 things she’s learned over 50 years, from a farm upbringing (#8: Don’t Get A Rabbit) to kitchen tips (#28: A Life Changing Way To Store Spices) to life around politics (#23: When Dressing For Lunch At Clive Palmer’s House, Choose Something Non-Flammable) all the way through to ageing and dealing with grief.

Lessons range from broad (#13: Life’s Too Short To Work For Dickheads) to extremely specific (#22: If You’re Doing An Event With Hillary Clinton, Do Not Drink The Glass Of Hot Water Covered With A Fancy Doily That Is Placed Carefully Backstage. It is For Hillary Clinton And Not For You).

Hilarious, pacey, thought-provoking and, as Leigh Sales says, “Who the hell would go to see that?”
