5-17 February @ Deluxe @ Yagan Square ·
Presented by Bella Green ·

Fresh from a sold-out season and a nomination for Best Comedy at Melbourne Fringe 2018, comedian, writer and sex worker Bella Green is bringing her much-talked about debut show Bella Green Is Charging For It to Fringeworld for the first time.

Charging For It is a funny, fast-paced look at Bella’s life as a sex worker told through stand-up, sketch comedy and storytelling. This show delves into the everyday minutiae of what goes into sex work, answering all the questions that you always wanted to ask but were too afraid to. Questions like; why is paying for sex so similar to ordering a salad? What really goes on in a peepshow? And how can you get away with wearing Uggs while being a cold, hard dominatrix?

Bella has worked in brothels and strip clubs, peepshows and dungeons, massage parlours and adult shops, but her most degrading job so far is still the three months she spent working in a call centre for one of the Big Four banks.

Check your inhibitions and shyness at the door for this no-holds bar comedy show and join Bella on a high-energy romp through the surprisingly mundane but always hilarious world of sex work, where the heels are high, the carpet is sticky, and the customer is usually wrong.

“…A genuinely clever, charming and polished show… authentic, hilarious, and uplifting…a gutsy, refreshing show that earns its laughs by elevation and not by depreciation”. WEEKEND NOTES

Bella Green Is Charging For It is directed by Caitlyn Staples of sketch troupe Hit By A Blimp (nominated for Best Comedy at Melbourne Fringe 2017).

A seasoned writer, comedian and improviser, Bella Green is a writer and performer for the house sketch troupe at The Improv Conspiracy, and appeared as part of the Lemon Comedy and Safety House showcases at MICF 2018. She regularly performs stand-up in some of Melbourne’sbest comedy rooms, appearing recently at Catfish Comedy and Crab Lab.
