Find Me a Primitive Man, Cabaret Juste Pour Rire

Sirensongs presents

Find Me a Primitive Man

Written by and starring Marysia

June 14-21, Cabaret Juste Pour Rire

6 shows only!

A scintillating cocktail of comedy and cabaret.

MONTREAL June 2008- Making her Canadian debut, London's talented Marysia is thrilled to bring Find Me a Primitive Man to the Montreal St-Ambroise Fringe Festival after her popular Edinburgh run. From the Cole Porter title tune to original comedy songs, the songs lurch from musical excellence to debauched bitterness. Don't miss Marysia's ludicrous logic, wicked observations and cheeky chansons d'amour in this jazzy, stand-up comedy delight.

In Find Me a Primitive Man, outrageous British beauty Lady Farquahr-Merkin (an ex-showgirl who managed to marry and divorce a minor member of the royal family) offers tips and wicked reminiscences on dating sports stars, European men and other minor members of the Royal Family. Be very scared, now she has come to Montreal to find a real man! Marysia is excited about her first visit to Canada, "I have been reading books on how to be a Canadian and how to date a Canadian- apparently I need to make out in a canoe."

Find Me a Primitive Man is a terrific blend of Marysia's talents; "I love to combine my years of singing cabaret with stand-up comedy. Cabaret is all about fun mixed with slightly uncomfortable truths."

From fatally flawed advice on dress sense ("Weddings are the best places to hook up; I think what puts the men off is my wedding dress.") and behaviour, ("I never go all the way on a first date, I make them wait until the second before I let them get the video camera out.") her memorable tips will last a lifetime.

Whether Marysia is doing mellow jazz or camp cabaret, her greatest passion is ensuring audiences have a great time. She hopes people come away having had a blast, learning some of the best/worst pick-up lines and knowing when to run from the opposite sex! Offer your best pick-up line and win a copy of Marysia's latest cd, If You Can't Make Love, Make Coffee. Pick-up lines can also be submitted via and If You Can't Make Love, Make Coffee, Marysia's debut cd, shows off her songs and jazz arrangements, highlighting her sophisticated, soulful brand of music.

Don't miss the Out-of-Towner Fringe-for-All where artists from out-of-town preview their shows. Be the first to see Marysia on stage in Montreal. Thurs. June 12, 10pm, Just for Laughs Studio, 2109 St. Laurent. FREE for everyone.

For media, this is an occasion for camera footage, interviews and still photography.
