Mental As Everything & Scarred For Life (Double Bill)


Singer-Songwriters Damon Smith and Josh Belperio team up to put mental health under the microscope.

Damon Smith has spent approximately 50,000 hours checking stoves and spinning in circles. Josh Belperio has had his boyfriend watch him pee into a bottle.

Together, they are a little bit scarred. And a little bit ‘mental’.

And they are baring all of their imperfections – in a cabaret double-bill full of original songs and onstage buffoonery.

Scarred For Life
With ‘a musicality that is equal parts Minchin and Mozart’ (Scenestr), let Josh Belperio regale you with the time he came off his pushbike, and wound up with an eight-inch scar. Or, as Andrew Bolt puts it, ‘man falls off bike, becomes star’ (Herald Sun).

Mental As Everything
Then, witness Damon Smith take you on a guided tour through his clinical OCD with his equally nervous cohort, Adam Coad, as they embark on a quest to come face to face with their demons in a unique show that is ‘fun, powerful and totally immersive’ (Stage Whispers).
