Reeking with wry humour

The revelatory hit of The Brisbane Cabaret Festival in 2006 and 2007, Tom Waits for No Man is a theatrical and comprehensive retrospective of Tom Waits most compelling work spanning the last 30 years.

This musical concept presented in cabaret style, is tender, rambunctious and full of wry humour, taking the audience on a journey of smoking gin joints and dingy diners seething with characters reeking of tall tales and heartache.

Presented by four of Brisbane's finest cabaret exponents - Greg Bird, Pearly Black, Sandro Colarelli and Alison St Ledger, backed by some of Australia's best musicians - John Rodgers, John Parker, Dave McGuire, Phil McLeod and Burke Turner and directed by Lewis Jones, this show celebrates a shared passion for the work of this most remarkable artist.

"Brilliant night of classic Waits tunes, originally interpreted.
