Jonathan Duffy had everything he ever dreamed of as a child. A loving husband, a home, 2 dogs and a stable career as a performer in the buzzing metropolis of Melbourne Australia. In the course of a few months he lost it all. Flash forward less than a year and almost like the lyrics of a song by a certain bearded drag queen he rose from the ashes like a phoenix. Taking on audiences as the only gay comedian in Iceland, directing music videos for the country’s biggest pop star, becoming a part of the official Eurovision team and writing with one of his favourite divas; Jono seemed to have found the way to get over the loss that broke his heart, except for one thing… he was still miserable.

Join Jonathan as he explores the many ways he tried to overcome eternal misery. Through stand up, songs and stories Jono will invite you on an intimate ride where no topic is taboo. From scabies to alcoholism he will share the ups and downs of trying to get it together in a Kim Kardashian world where sex is free and consequences are optional.

Miserable is the final in a trilogy that has chronicled the life of this Australian born comedian and cabaret performer since 2013. Audiences have noted that Jonathan has the ability to effortlessly move from humour to raw emotional states and this show is no exception.

From the darkest moments of contemplating suicide to the flashing lights of the biggest song contest in the world, Miserable looks at how sometimes the best year of your life might not always feel amazing.
