Access and Inclusion
Orange is the New Black’s ‘Big Boo’ Lea DeLaria comes to Sydney for one night only. The much-loved and outspoken actress, comedian, singer and gay icon presents a live show that combines stand-up comedy and sultry vocals. With a performance style described as ‘loud and brassy’, DeLaria brings her high energy genius to the stage, and delivers a supremely hard-hitting, entertaining show.
Lea DeLaria seems to have achieved overnight stardom with her three-time, SAG Award-winning, stand-out role as Carrie ‘Big Boo’ Black in the Netflix hit series Orange is the New Black. However, DeLaria’s multi-faceted career as a comedian, actress, and jazz musician has, in fact, spanned decades.
DeLaria holds the distinction of being the first openly gay comic on television in America, which led to countless television and film roles portraying police lieutenants, PE teachers and the lesbian who inappropriately hits on straight women. Selected TV and film credits include Californication, Will and Grace, Friends, First Wives Club, Dear Dumb Diary and Edge of Seventeen.
DeLaria was the featured vocalist at the 50th Anniversary of the Newport Jazz Festival and has performed in some of the most prestigious houses in the world including Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Centre, the Chicago Symphony, Hollywood Bowl and The Royal Albert Hall.
With a velvet-smooth voice contrasting perfectly with razor-sharp wit and sassy stage presence, this will be a spectacular performance not to be missed.
