Starring Dash Kruck

It’s Lionel’s first time. You promise to be gentle, right?

Lionel is new at this. In fact, he's working it out as he goes along. Under duress from his terrifying German therapist to 'express himself', he has inadvertently found himself in a cabaret. Lionel draws on his limited knowledge of the style
and formidable Wikipedia skills to hilariously stumble his way through his hour on stage. After covering sex, booze, boys and mythical beasts he finds that maybe he's not so bad at expressing himself after all. 


"Every now and again, there is a show that is so clever, so witty, so painful, so funny, so daring and so much more than you thought you were getting into. Dash Kruck's cabaret show I Might Take My Shirt Off is a prime example of this." - Theatrepress

"Holy s***! - Dash Kruck's I Might Take My Shirt off is one of the best written cabarets I have seen for a LONG time." - Kris Stewart, Artistic Director of Brisbane Powerhouse and Founder of New York Music Theatre Festival

"As tender and wonder filled as it is funny, and as skillfully built as any headline act... Dash Kruck is an absolute star" - XS Entertainment

"This show is an unusual blend of sharing of pain, satire, storytelling, and musical dexterity. Premature glitter, adult humour, mythical beasts and booze blend into a compelling, memorable, unique world-class entertainment." - Weekend notes

"Kruck — the dashing love child of Eddie Perfect and James Corden — is marvellous" - Herald Sun
