Sound and Fury members Maritzer, Hercamp and Aussie Adamczak calmly stood in front of their audience at the Tandanya Arts Cafe, waiting for late-comers, assuring each audience member that “this isn’t a part of the show”.

Becky Brunning is an unassuming comic. In her words, if she were a sandwich, she’d be egg. Largely based around her supposed personal failings and a deep love for food, there’s something relatable in Brunning’s show for anyone who’s failed their driver’s test, been the least attractive friend or attempted Dry July. By Brunning’s own …

FRINGE 2017 – BLANK TILES – DYLAN COLE – TUXEDO CAT

Dylan Cole has either played Scrabble seriously or he must certainly have spent time around people who have.  This funny, sad, insightful show should appeal to both the Scrabble fraternity and also to those who have never touched a tile.  This portrayal of world champion Austin Michaels, and the story of the impact of Alzheimer’s …

The Wine Bluffs – RCC – 4K

  With arrogant ignorance and eloquent bullshit, Damian and Paul have pulled together one of the most hilarious shows at this year’s Fringe. The Wine Bluffs is an hour of chaotic wit, a brilliant display of Callinan and Calleja’s humour. A show perfectly suited to Adelaide, where wine wankers are as readily available as bad …

COMEDY – Australia: A Whinging Pom’s Guide – PJ O’Brien’s – 3.5K

Daniel Willis is a whinging pom and proud of it. On the balcony of PJ O’Brien’s on cheapo Tuesday, Willis entertained a charming crowd of 14 people.
