After spending 4 years at film school, Alex Lowes has penned an explosive collection of comedy songs inspired by Hollywood and pop culture.

'Triple Butter Popcorn' is a genre-bending concoction of cabaret, cinema and keytar solos, offering a Gen-Z twist on the idea of a musical comedy gig.

From funky tracks about showbiz to ballads about talking dog movies, these catchy tunes will bring you killer punchlines with a touch of rock concert pizzazz.

With a shiny new keytar and a couple of viral TikTok hits under his belt, Alex is ready to unleash his solo festival debut.


Alex Lowes: Triple Butter Popcorn presented at Malthouse as part of Melbourne International Comedy Festival.

Comedy Festival at Malthouse is supported by our Season Partner, Scotchmans Hill.
