Introducing the controversial show that made international headlines
during this year’s
Melbourne International Comedy Festival.
‘On The Spectrum” is a heart warming and rather hilarious insight into the generalisations of spectrum traits.
There are also special character appearances and a wedding!
Nikki is an adequate mother, writer, comedy panel show regular (CRAM ch10, BEHAVE YOURSELF ch7),
actress (Delvene Delaney in HOGES ch7) series regular in the comedy sketch show KINNE (ch7 and FB), and TV host (QUIZMANIA, Ch9).
Nikki, being a mother to a child with autism, is also a campaigner for awarenes
with her sentiment being “it’s not just okay to be different,
it’s refreshing. F&*k normal”.
So book a sitter, park your Prado, have a drink and have a laugh because at the end of the day, we’re all on the spectrum, well, according to this show we are.
“We were still laughing about the 101 Dalmatians on the drive home…so true!” Peter M.
“Absolutely excellent show. Could relate to everything as a parent of Spectrum kids” Kylie D.
“We loved how her son is the hero of the story!” Matt T.
Adequate Mother Shirts are available now!
a little more about Nikki
Mother, Actress, Comedian, Writer and campaigner for Autism awareness.
A born and bred Queenslander, Osborne grew up game fishing, go karting and downing dominos while watching the Broncos. Growing up in her model sister’s shadow, Nikki, the less attractive one, learned to grab the spotlight with Michael Jackson impersonations and fart jokes.
Bravely at 17 with a Face full of braces auditioned for QUT’s prestigious acting academy. After auditioning against 2000 other hopefuls,
Nikki’s Dad was in shock when she secured one of the 15 spots on offer with her comedic rendition of Romeo and Juliet and said “I thought it was funny that Juliet is arguing with herself on a balcony about a dude she’s crushing on hard”.
Being one of only 6 who graduated from the grueling degree of acting, Nikki has continues working alongside Australia’s biggest comedic talents such as Mick Molloy, Steve Vizard, Ronny Chieng, Nick Cody and Troy Kinne.
Nikki’s comedic talents were made obvious when hosting the late night quiz show on Channel 9, Quizmania, where Nikki was often required to ad lib when the phones were down. Happening quite a lot allowed Osborne to practice comedic material on LIVE television and was often quoted in the papers the following day.
Not much has changed as her first stand up show “On The Spectrum” became the most controversial and talked about show of the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, attracting national and international press. Despite the subversive nature of the topic, Nikki was praised by audiences for her hilarious yet heart felt content.
Despite having worked with Oscar winning directors on award winning series, Osborne says she’s happiest delivering her own material and is currently writing her own comedy TV series.
