A Date With Effie

Here's your chance to get up very close and personal to this cultural icon and have an unforgettable tummy tickling night of comedy. With special guest: XAVIER MICHELIDES.

Actress Mary Coustas’ beloved character Effie has long been Australia’s most loveable boofhead. This ground-breaking national treasure has kept Australia entertained for two decades. From ‘Wogs out of Work’ and ‘Acropolis Now’ to ‘Greeks on the Roof’, this hair-gel-Goddess has succeeded in winning a Logie, made us think differently and kept us laughing – all at the same time. The outspoken host of the most prestigious event in Australian politics, The Midwinter Ball at Parliament House, Effie has taken her streetwise woggy bogan mouth and stuck it to two PMs, John Howard and Kevin Rudd, forgettable Opposition leaders and uppity members of the National press gallery. Let’s just say it wasn’t pretty. Have you ever fantasised about having a hot date with the Virgin Megastar herself? Who hasn’t? Here’s your chance to get up very close and personal to this cultural icon and have an unforgettable fun night. What have youse got to lose legends? Exactly!
