That One Time I Joined The Illuminati

Ever wondered about the inner workings of the world’s most secret society? Well you’re in luck because up and coming cabaret powerhouse Lou Wall has dedicated an entire show to answering all your questions.

Like most, Lou was bored by 2020’s lockdown in Melbourne. Unlike most, Lou decided to use lockdown to join the Illuminati. It was that or join the sourdough baking cult. Lou went deep, spending three months trawling the shadiest corners of Reddit and the Dark Web, using a burner phone, their primary school email and some horrific fake ID photos. Along the way, Lou answers questions like: Do the Illuminati actually exist? What’s their big secret? And can a 25-year-old with social anxiety, insurmountable HECS debt and a penchant for using their birthdate as their PIN somehow infiltrate the global elite?

Let Lou take you down a rabbit hole into the darkest and strangest corners the internet has to offer in this combination of stand-up and deranged PowerPoint presentation. Featuring original songs, hilarious anecdotes and mediocre NBN, you’ll witness the Wild Wild West of comedy cabaret itself.

  • 'To put it simply this is a bloody good time.'
