In a world where comedians are savvy business people this DVD would have been released several years ago to capitalise on the comedy DVD craze that was sweeping the nation. But Kitty Flanagan is no business woman. She's an idiot. That's why she took her sweet time making sure her first ever DVD was just right. Originally filmed at the Sydney Opera House that recording was destined never to be released. "It wasn't quite right and I didn't like my outfit." said Flanagan knowing exactly what audiences find important. So the show was re-recorded at the Orange Civic Theatre. "Excellent show" said Flanagan "but again I didn't really like my outfit..." However this time common sense has prevailed (read: management has stepped in and drawn the line). After all it's not about bedazzled cardigans or pants that don't quite fit anymore because someone ate too many pies over winter it's about the funnies. It's all about the funnies. Charming & Alarming is the definitive collection of Flanagan's best standup performed in a sparkly cardigan and ill fitting trousers. It's a rapid fire 60 minutes of cracking stories wizard characterisations and hard laughs. There's also a touch of musical spectacle... if you count a very funny song about underpants as a musical spectacle. So Ladies and Gentlemen at long last would you please welcome - Kitty Flanagan!
