The Giddy Aunts

created by Jenny Knox

The Giddy Aunts will entertain and confront you through their own unique and powerful characters.

Jenny Knox is a comedienne and entertainer living in Melbourne. Her creative life has been rich and varied with a diverse range of experiences in performance.

Her primary professional career was in nursing. She was a Registered Nurse and midwife for more than 30 years. She gathered material for her characters over the years by observing nurses and patients in all their vulnerable moments and learnt to explore human frailty and the funny side of things as she went.

In February 2020 prior to the Pandemic Jenny started writing and performing odes to her character creations “The Giddy Aunts” and hatching a plan for her stage show "Behind The Screens." Her Facebook Page became a place to share reflections from The Giddy Aunts about the goings on during our various lockdowns and loss of access to toilet paper, and provided some light hearted fun to those who watched along.

Jenny continues to write and take weekly singing lessons to continue her passion for performance and character creation.

Granny Smith

She might look like a sweet old lady with a bun and pearls…but she’s not. The status quo challenging, passionate in life Granny Smith lives by example and loves sharing life as it was in her past to a younger generation, even if they don’t want to hear it.

I am NOT invisible! There’s no such thing as ageism

Felicity Bubbles

Going through her third divorce, her husband Richard (Little Dickie) has run off with his secretary. She’s keeping her chin up and sharing her tales of life after divorce. She’s lived a life of luxury, (live in domestic help, a nanny for the kids in the school holidays when they’re home from boarding school), but her life as an influencer is coming unstuck.

This time in her life is a reawakening, a regeneration, and she’s discovering some things for the very first time.


Dot Matrix

The true digital immigrant Dot points out the absurdity of modern day designs that seem to make like more complicated that simplified. She is passionate about honesty, integrity and hates hypocrisy.

Edwina Shambles

Edwina is a politician and lives in the Canberra Bubble. She is ignorant, a bit vague, thinks she knows everything, and her expert topic is definitely herself. She’d be happy to vote for cloning so long as it was her.

With the stories each of these aunts share, you will laugh, maybe shed a few tears, but you will always come away moved, and perhaps challenged by their presentation. The aunts have all developed to become confident, and fearless women in an age where this can be an attribute, not something needed to be hidden away.

The Giddy Aunts don’t want to be invisible. By sharing their many precious and whimsical moments, they tell their stories in a fun and positive way.
