Claire Sullivan: Toast Rat
Claire Sullivan’s Toast Rat is weird, whacky and wonderful. She is an exceptionally brave performer who sets her ego aside to talk about coffee, scooters and of course sex.
She is more relatable than bringing a book to the beach and not reading it, or checking your symptoms online and convincing yourself you’re on death’s door.
She is a free spirit who challenges stereotypes and is a little bit ‘out there’ but in a good way. She undresses on stage, recounts her most embarrassing moments and is not afraid to make a fool out of herself.
The show encompasses some unusual character impersonations, remarkable storytelling and natural wit.
Her story about how this guy pulled an unrefrigerated steak from his backpack, in a house full of vegetarians, was hilarious.
It’s not for everyone and certainly is not for the faint-hearted, however, she is a passionate artist who really does wear her heart on her sleeve.
The show pays a touching tribute to her late father who we hear throughout the show. Her father would be proud of the wildly independent, daring and lovable young woman his daughter has become.
Claire Sullivan is ahead of her time, a phenomenal performer and a complete crack-up. If you’re a little bit weird, you’ll fit right in! There is no such thing as normal.
P.S we hate backpack steak man!
