The talented all-rounder and force of nature Em Rusciano will be taking her brand new show The Try Hard Tour across the country this December. Em is Australia’s favourite all-singing, all-dancing, all-emoting, leopard-print clad warrior will play shows in Brisbane, Sydney, Adelaide, Hobart, Melbourne, Newcastle and Townsville, with copious amounts of glitter and side-splittingly hilarious true stories in tow.

Most recently, Em broke the internet when she announced the release of her forthcoming memoir Try Hard – Tales From The Life Of a Needy Overachiever (out 1 November 2016through Simon & Schuster Australia):

“Well, I bloody did it! I wrote a whole book by myself! Truth be told I didn’t think I could do this, there were times when I didn’t want to and times when I cried so hard I had snot coming out of my eyes – but I did. I’m so proud/terrified at this point in time I think my heart may burst in my chest. I’ve put all of my best words down in one spot.

It’s called “Try Hard” because I do and I am one – always have been, always will be. It’s traditionally a putdown in Australia, I was called it relentlessly in high school; I thought perhaps I’d reclaim it and make it something good. I hope you like it, it’s the best thing I’ve ever made that isn’t alive. It will be out late October, I really hope you love it.” – Em Rusciano

Funny, feisty and fabulous, Em’s insights into her world of mayhem, stardom and motherhood is a laugh-out-loud, cry-out-loud balm for the soul… but the lawyers made her take a bunch of stuff out.

So she’s bringing the soundtrack to her youth and the stuff she took out straight to you, live on stage this December! As always, Em will be accompanied by her trusty sidekick Vincie (aka Dad).

Got a burning question you’ve always wanted to ask Em but had fumble fingers during Woiyne Toiyme? All shows on The Try Hard Tour will be followed by a 30 minute Q & A between Em and her audience… and the lawyers don’t have a say in this bit either. Best be sure you’ve studied the book!

Expect laughter, singing, tears, snot, honest tales from her incredible life and learn the real names of the people she had to change to protect the guilty! This is Em Rusciano, Try Hard, at her stripped-back, intimate and honest best.
