FRINGE 2019 – Anya Anastasia: The Show – 3K – Gluttony Masonic

Anya Anastasia has been around the Fringe scene for a while now, both here in Adelaide, in Edinburgh, and no doubt at festivals throughout Australia. Known for her incredible costumes, quirky songs, and falsetto tones, Anya is a stalwart of the cabaret festival scene. For this reason, it’s disappointing that her latest Fringe fare, Anya Anastasia: …

FRINGE 2019 – Jack Tucker: Comedy Standup Hour – 4.5K – The Garden of Unearthly Delights

Think of every bad American comedian you can think of. Think of every trope, every sound effect, every joke. All of it. Well, it all lies here in Jack Tucker: Comedy Standup Hour. And that’s a good thing. Comedian Zach Zucker (of Zach and Viggo fame) presents his alter ego, terribly cringing comedian Jack Tucker. Jack dances …

FRINGE 2019: Lewis Garnham: You Can’t Always Get What You Want – 3.5K – Rhino Room

Lewis Garnham is certainly not a book you should judge by his cover. As a young woman attending his show on International Women’s Day, I found myself in a room that was about 80% filled with men. No, not men – lads; bros, if you will. I was very, very unsure of the type of …

FRINGE 2019 – Briefs: Close Encounters – 5K – RCC Fringe

Be warned: Briefs: Close Encounters is about to take you on a journey. And it will make anyone who hasn’t seen it…jealousss. The Briefs boys are back with their latest show, and boy do they know how to entertain! Close Encounters is a fun romp in Adelaide Uni’s Bonython Hall – but beware, it’s not for the …

FRINGE 2019: Dolly Diamond’s Blankety Blanks – 3K – Gluttony

Dolly Diamond is your host as you enter the May Wirth in Gluttony and prepare to play – or, to watch others play – Blankety Blanks. That is the basic premise of the show, but throw in a panel of Fringe celebrity judges (artists, staff, venue managers, etc.) and a couple of unsuspecting audience members …

FRINGE 2019 – The Choir of Man – 4.5K – Gluttony

There’s no doubt about it – The Choir of Man is a Fringe favourite around the world for a good reason. This is a polished production, one that has dotted the ‘i’s and crossed the ‘t’s. It knows itself – particularly its strengths – inside and out. It’s well practiced, with high production value. In …

FRINGE 2019 – Yummy Deluxe – 4.5K – The Garden of Unearthly Delights

Yummy took the Adelaide Fringe by storm in 2018 and now they’re back with a bigger and better show than before. Yummy Deluxe brings back most of your Yummy favourites (Karen from Finance, the much-loved MC from last year, was unfortunately missing) for a night of fun and frivolity. Some numbers were more bizzare than …

FRINGE 2019: James Donald Forbes McCann: Devil’s Advocate – 5K – Rhino Room

James Donald Forbes McCann is here to defend indefensible statements. When you enter the Rhino Room, you’re asked to write down a statement that not a single person can defend. Maybe even the worst thing you can think of. You put it in the bucket, take your seat, and out comes James. One by one …

FRINGE 2019 – Bernie Dieter’s Little Death Club – 4.5K – Gluttony

Step inside the Little Death Club and you’ll see some sights you won’t forget in a hurry – and that’s not a bad thing! Bernie Dieter is your host as you step inside this one-of-a-kind cabaret club, full of nudity, naked mole rats, and a whole lot of talent. From the always-fantastic Gingzilla, to the …

FRINGE 2019 – Comfort Food Cabaret – 5K – Adelaide Central Market

Chanteuse and cook Michelle Pearson has built up her Comfort Food Cabaret over three years of touring to become the fantastically fun show it is now. Set in the Adelaide Central Market, you find yourself greeted with someone requesting any dietary requirements (rather unusual for a Fringe show!), some delicious local produce, and a set …
