The Music

Charlie Lewin never felt like a magpie. Which is probably a good thing, because they're all full of shit.

In his award-winning debut, Melbourne's "rising star of standup" (The Music) Charlie Lewin takes us from Catholic boy's school all the way to Grindr. Bending genre and gender, stand-up and song, Cockatiel is a hilarious and heartfelt snapshot of the life of a queer kid from Melbourne trying to find his flock.

Winner of Best Newcomer at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival (2021) Charlie Lewin makes his hotly anticipated Mardi Gras debut in this whip-smart and relatable coming-of-age tale that will speak to every strange little drama kid trying to figure it all out.

As a standup, sketch comic, podcaster and playwright, Charlie has always loved comedy that plays with form. A jack of many trades, Charlie is proud to bring original songs and his distinct brand of theatrical camp to the heart of queer Australia at Sydney Mardi Gras.
