Karen From Finance

What an absolute delight to have Karen join the pink bus to Broken Hill. We are so very excited to have her on board.

Karen brings so much charisma to our festival programme, she will be join our cast of Drag Queens on the Cabaret Stage where you will witness the sheer delights of her extremely funny, witty and cleverly produced performances.

Karen From Finance is the premiere 'corporate' queen of Melbourne, Australia. She lives alone with her budgie 'Dantè' and enjoys tax time, office-based bonding activities, and invoice archiving.

She is a regular at hosting contestants from the smash hit show RuPaul’s Drag Race at special events which have included season winners such as Alaska Thunderfuck, Violet Chachki, Jinkx Monsoon, Sharon Needles, Bob The Drag Queen and Raja.

Karen also co-wrote, co-produced and co-starred in the full-length independent production ‘Karen & Olympia On Ice’ with Olympia Bukkakis in early 2015, and the 2016 Melbourne International Comedy Festival hit ‘Les N Mis’ with Dean Arcuri. She is one of the original cast members of Melbourne based queer cabaret 'Yummy', and is a big fan of doing the rounds in the arts festival programs too.

With Karen at the wheel, you’ll be tickled with pink glitter over the full three days of drag in the desert.
