Lock up your husbands darlings, its DOLLY DIAMOND returning as our Headline Act.
Dolly is thrilled to be returning to the 2019 Broken Heel Festival and is a much-loved personality originally from the UK and who has proudly called Australia home since 2009. Dolly has proven herself to be one of the country's finest comedy cabaret talents and became an Australian citizen in 2014.
Dolly has recently become an Ambassador for Guide Dogs Victoria.
This year Dolly performed two sold out shows at the Midsumma Festival, Dolly Diamond’s Parton Me (A tribute to Dolly Parton).
Dolly will return to Perth & Adelaide Fringe with Bl*nkety Bl*nks.
Dolly also regularly appears on ABC News Breakfast with Virginia Trioli & Michael Rowland.
Dolly Diamond was the Artistic Director of the 2017 & 2018 Melbourne Cabaret Festival. She has had numerous successful cabaret seasons around the nation as part of Adelaide Fringe, Fringe World Perth, Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras, Melbourne Cabaret Festival, Ballarat Cabaret Festival, Midsumma Festival, Adelaide’s FEAST Festival and Broken Heel Festival.
Over the last decade this talented artist has been invited to lend her face and name to raise public awareness around major Australian campaigns and in support of many causes.
In 2016 and 2017 Dolly proudly toured regional Victoria with Gender and Sexuality Commissioner, Rowena Allen for the Rural Regional Roadshow.
We are so excited to have Dolly return to the Festival in 2019 as our headline Act on the Main Stage Friday night with a full 40 minute set plus appearances throughout the night.
