Lucindale is gearing up for one of the biggest weeks in the town's history when it hosts triple J's One Night Stand on September 14.

The week has just got even bigger with the announcement of two comedy shows on September 13 at Lucindale Memorial Hall.

One of the "must see" shows will be Amelia Ryan's 'A Storm in a D Cup' comedy-cabaret show, which is set to leave audience members in stitches.

Amelia has sold out shows in New York, London, Edinburgh and has her sights set on Lucindale.

The show revolves heavily around her life stories after growing up in a family that included a gay father and his transgender partner.

Speaking to the Border Chronicle, she said she was "excited" to bring her show to a small country town.

She said her show will leave the audience in "shock" and wondering whether her life experiences actually happened.

"Nearly every time I do my show there is usually one person who comes up to me and says 'what parts of the show were actually real?'," Amelia said.

When asked what people should take from her show, the openly honest comedian said: "People will feel better about their lives after hearing about my entertaining stories."

The man responsible for bringing the two comedy shows to Lucindale is artistic director of Mount Gambier's Gener8 Theatre, Jamie Harding.

Mr Harding was officially selected by the One Night Stand board to provide entertainment after they took notice of the number of fantastic projects he has undertaken in the Limestone Coast area.

One of the massive projects he has worked on during the year includes a digital art installation which set to light up Bordertown on October 27-30.

Mr Harding said he was extremely happy with the quality of shows he is set to bring to Lucindale, stating Amelia's show is "extremely hilarious".

"Amelia is a close friend of mine and she has been a massive favourite at the Fringe, so I am sure everyone will find her extremely hilarious," Mr Harding said.

Declaring the week as "the biggest event on the social calendar in Lucindale's history", he said adding the extra entertainment provided a great opportunity, due to numbers expected to arrive in Lucindale the day before the festival.

"We are expecting around five to six thousand people to arrive the night before the One Night Stand and that creates a great opportunity to provide extra entertainment for those people visiting the Limestone Coast," Mr Harding said.

With accommodation across the Limestone Coast close to being completely booked, anticipation for the event is growing by the week.

Mr Harding said anyone interested in attending the pre-festival entertainment needs to act quickly, stating tickets will sell fast.
