Rhys Nicholson – ‘Dish’Book Launch
ABOUT THE SHOW
Rhys Nicholson is a busy mum with an anxiety disorder, a complicated relationship with food and a book deal.
In Dish, a debut whack at writing an entire book, Nicholson is reaching out to get some stuff straight in their head. Through a series of revealing stories, intrusive thoughts and a recipe here and there, they’re hoping to ruminate, gossip and generally have a deeply private, wide-ranging conversation with themselves about a whole bunch of life’s smaller questions.
What do you do if you think you might have an underwear fetish? How long do you roast a chicken for? Does everyone hate you? Why did no one bring up how hard it is to write a book? What’s going on with heterosexual men, and are they okay?
Join Rhys as they launch their debut book ‘Dish. They’ll read excerpts in a way that only they can and answer all the audiences’ burning questions in a special Q&A. A night not to be missed.

ABOUT THE ARTIST
Rhys Nicholson, multi-award winning Australian comedian, writer, actor and presenter, is set to publish their hilariously fresh and unapologetic book Dish on 31 October 2023.
Notable for their role as a judge alongside RuPaul and Michelle Visage on the Stan Original Series RuPaul’s Drag Race Down Under, Rhys Nicholson has a booming live and televised stand-up career – with performances in Australia, New Zealand, the UK and North America, as well as a Netflix special. They are also a favourite across our small screens seen in panel shows, documentaries and acting roles (in the sci-fi comedy The Imperfects).
Rhys has opened for Conan O’Brien as he toured Australia, and is co-founder of Melbourne live comedy venue, The Comedy Republic.
In their first book, Dish, they have penned a semi-stream-of-consciousness written tapestry, squeezed out by a profoundly apprehensive overthinker who’s doing their best to unapologetically stop apologising.
