Words by Staff Writer

Powerhouse performer and creative chameleon Em Rusciano will play fifteen shows across the country including rural and regional corners such as Ballarat

Performer, podcaster, writer, comedian, singer, stand-up comedian; that’s a solid resume for one person but not for go-getter Em Rusciano who is filtering all of her talents into upcoming tour Outgrown.

Rusciano will be heading out on the road, playing fifteen shows across the country starting in Toowoomba and working through Brisbane, Gold Coast, Wollongong, Sydney, Adelaide, Perth, Bunbury, Ballarat, Newcastle, Canberra, Albury, Launceston, Hobart and finishing up in Melbourne.

Outgrown is a hysterical, intense and multisensory inspection of the phoenix recovery after everything has been burned to the ground. Rusciano draws from her recent surprise diagnostic trifecta of ADHD, Autism and early menopause to build the Outgrown narrative. These diagnoses would have been enough to shock anyone to their core but after Rusciano picked herself up after one to two business days, she set about exploring the ins and outs of each, along the way delivering a powerful speech about her neuro-divergent journey at the National Press Club of Australia.

Rusciano has been transparent with her 280,000 Facebook followers and 240,000 Instagram followers, as well as her Emsolation podcast listeners. The podcast produced by Rusciano’s production company Down The Hill Studio was picked up as Australia’s first ever Spotify exclusive and earned second place in the Australian Podcast awards in the People’s Choice category. The podcast also debuted at number one on the Apple Podcast comedy charts during their first week of independence, and has seen staggering success with their premium subscription offering, Emsolation Extra.

Her 2019 one-hour televised comedy special Rage and Rainbows, which included original music cowritten with Kate Miller-Heidke, smashed ratings records on Network Ten. As one of Australia’s highest selling comics having spent the last seven years touring her stand-up comedy show the country to sell-out audiences on an annual basis, Rusciano is a must-see artist.

Promising “elaborate costumes, novelty sized props and [Rusciano] workshopping [her] trauma via an over the top all out musical comedy extravaganza”, Outgrown is set to be a showstopper.

Frontier Member presale commences Friday 19 April from 12 noon local time before tickets go on general sale Tuesday 23 April from 10am local time. Tickets and tour information can be found here.
