Selina Jenkins’ multi-award winning and endearing character Beau Heartbreaker returns to the Melbourne International Comedy Festival in 2015 for the second time with hilarious tales of worldly adventures and brilliantly composed songs.

A 2014 Green Room Award nominee, Jenkins is a seasoned performer with astonishing vocal ability, depth, and sincerity, which is no small feat for a woman in a beard.

After touring extensively throughout 2014, Beauʼs newest self titled show has received awards, rave reviews and standing ovations from both national and international audiences, including 5 Stars in Indianapolis.

An artist who offers a ʻMoney Back Quality Guaranteeʼ on their work is a rare find indeed. But it is a risk that the creator of this unforgettable character is more than happy to take.

Don’t miss the outstanding Beau Heartbreaker at this year’s MICF.
