That One Time I Joined The Illuminati

Do the Illuminati actually exist?

What’s their big secret?

And can a 24-year-old with social anxiety, insurmountable HECS debt and a penchant for using their birthdate as their PIN somehow infiltrate the global elite?

Multi-award-winning comedian Lou Wall takes you down a rabbit hole into the darkest and strangest corners the internet has to offer.

Featuring original songs, hilarious anecdotes, a fake ID and mediocre NBN, you'll witness the Wild-Wild-West of cabaret itself.


  • Co-producers Lou Wall and Natasha Phillips
  • Created, written and performed Lou Wall
  • Music Lou Wall and James Gales
  • Dramaturgy Harriet Wallace-Mead
