Multi award-winning Kiwi/Canadian/Jewish comedienne, Deb Filler, goes on a hilarious musical quest meeting ‘The Three Lennys’, even singing The Beatles in Yiddish!

Deb Filler is a New Zealandar/Canadian/Jewish acclaimed and multi-award-winning comedienne, who brings together her musical touchstones and the characters she has met along her life journey through storytelling and music.

With only a guitar, (mostly) true stories and a raft of lovable characters, this jam-packed, deeply humorous, incredibly poignant show is a story about empowering our true selves and embracing music and our mentors, whose powerful influence will linger long after the curtain goes down. It’s an enchanting intimate show, filled with gusto, charm, brilliance, talent and chutzpah.

★★★★ “Whether you like jokes or singing, get your coats on and go see it.” Get Your Coats on, Edinburgh
