They say actions speak louder than words, so let us welcome you into the visual world of Auslan (Australian Sign Language). Join us for an hour of laughter led by infamous Auslan teacher and Deaf community legend, Barry Priori.

Skip to everyone's favourite part of learning a new language and immerse yourself in the taboo vocabulary you won't find in the dictionary. Maybe you want to swear at your boss, tell that person in the next lane exactly what you think of their driving or ask that sexy Deaf person out on a hot date. The options are endless!

Be entertained by Barry's larger than life personality while he teaches you how to swear, dis your mates with the perfect insult, show your lust and express love using Auslan. No experience necessary, just shake out those hands and give it a go. All of Barry's signs will be interpreted into spoken English to add to your experience.

    Statistics suggest that 93% of interpersonal communication is non-verbal with 55% being body language and 38% being tone of voice so it’s no surprise to see a show like this doing so well.

    In this show Barry Priori shares with us some of his favourite taboo and naughty words and shows us how to apply them in AusLan which is short for Australian Sign Language.

    It’s an interactive show so be prepared to participate and learn how to sign these naughty words.

    You’ll love this show if you are a member of the deaf / hearing impaired community but you’ll also enjoy it if you’re the kind of person who appreciates the subtleties of body language and interpersonal communication or if like me, you have no swag but might be interested in getting some.
