Created and Performed by Vanessa Smythe

“How can we find the magic in our lives? Because we need it, in order to keep going.” Part poetry, part stand-up, and part serenade, Vanessa Smythe shares poignant, funny, and deeply personal stories about the people we dreamed we’d be - and the memories that remind us of who we truly are. Wry and unafraid to poke fun at herself, Vanessa’s show is a celebration of life’s tricky tight corners, and its enduring, understated joy. “[S]he’s able to quickly tack between the humour in everyday minutia, and grand, heartfelt observations about big life questions.” - NOW For these performances, Vanessa and her microphone are joined by her 8-months pregnant stomach.
