Brutally honest and hilarious

Rose Callaghan's comedy show, Mum Jokes, is headed to Castlemaine.

Don’t call Rose Callaghan a ‘mum’. She’s an intelligent, alluring, bisexual Scorpio with E-cup boobs and a newly issued probationary licence who just so happens to the be the proud owner of a baby.

In a truly inspiring world first, after finishing the eighth season of Homeland and trying weed again, Rose Callaghan (winner, Sydney Fringe ‘Best Comedy’ award) got pregnant and had a baby during COVID (there was another person involved, but this isn’t his comedy show).

The experience of trying to be a modern parent in a system that’s quite attached to old-school gender roles came as a shock.

A hilarious journey whether you’re already a parent, planning to be or have no plan to breed whatsoever.

Don’t miss Rose’s extremely short regional preview tour before she opens at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival.

Rose is a regular on ABC Melbourne where she pops in to chat about podcasts with Jacinta Parsons.

You may have also come across her work as a regular on 3RRR and Triple J – as well as Double J, Triple M, Fox FM and ABC RN or read words by her in The Guardian or The Sydney Morning Herald.

Over her 10-year comedy career, Rose has developed a reputation for thematic shows that think outside the square, packed with hilarious takes on the world around her, selling out across the country with rave reviews.

Mum Jokes: Melbourne Comedy Festival Preview Show will be showing at The Bridge Hotel, Castlemaine, on March 19 at 9pm.

Tickets are $17.35 online and $20 at the door. To purchase online tickets, visit:
