★★★★★ "You'll definitely laugh, you may cry, you'll probably get a biscuit" The Public Review

Jess Thom aka Touretteshero has Tourette's Syndrome, a condition that makes her say 'biscuit' 16,000 times a day. Her unusual neurology gives her a unique perspective on life: one she’s unleashing on the world.

This two-woman show weaves comedy, puppetry, singing, and incredible tics to explore spontaneity, creativity, disability, and things you never knew would make you laugh. Jess is neurologically incapable of staying on script, so no two shows can be the same. And that’s when the fun begins.


Ensuring the right welcome for all audience members is very important to Touretteshero which is why every performance of Backstage In Biscuit Land is "relaxed". Relaxed performances are performances that offer a warm welcome to people who find it difficult to follow the usual conventions of theatre behaviour. This can include: people with learning disabilities, movement disorders, Autistic Spectrum disorder, other neurological conditions, those with young children or babies and of course, people with Tourette's Syndrome.

All shows are AUSLAN interpreted.
